MemoryMappedFile.CreateViewStream Method (Int64, Int64)

Creates a stream that maps to a view of the memory-mapped file, and that has the specified offset and size.

Namespace:  System.IO.MemoryMappedFiles
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

member CreateViewStream : 
        offset:int64 * 
        size:int64 -> MemoryMappedViewStream

Parameters

offset
Type: System.Int64

The byte at which to start the view.

size
Type: System.Int64

The size of the view. Specify 0 (zero) to create a view that starts at offset and ends approximately at the end of the memory-mapped file.

Return Value

Type: System.IO.MemoryMappedFiles.MemoryMappedViewStream
A stream of memory that has the specified offset and size.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

offset or size is a negative value.

-or-

size is greater than the logical address space.

UnauthorizedAccessException

Access to the memory-mapped file is unauthorized.

IOException

size is greater than the total virtual memory.

You can use the stream returned by this method for sequential access to a memory-mapped file, such as for inter-process communications.

To create a complete view of the memory-mapped file, specify 0 (zero) for the size parameter. If you do this, the size of the view might be smaller or larger than the size of the source file on disk. This is because views are provided in units of system pages, and the size of the view is rounded up to the next system page size.
