FileStream.Write Method

Writes a block of bytes to this stream using data from a buffer.

Namespace: System.IO
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public override void Write (
	byte[] array,
	int offset,
	int count
)
public void Write (
	byte[] array, 
	int offset, 
	int count
)
public override function Write (
	array : byte[], 
	offset : int, 
	count : int
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

array

The buffer containing data to write to the stream.

offset

The zero-based byte offset in array at which to begin copying bytes to the current stream.

count

The number of bytes to be written to the current stream.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

array is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

ArgumentException

offset and count describe an invalid range in array.

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

offset or count is negative.

IOException

An I/O error occurs.

- or -

Another thread may have caused an unexpected change in the position of the operating system's file handle.

ObjectDisposedException

The stream is closed.

NotSupportedException

The current stream instance does not support writing.

This method overrides Write.

The offset parameter gives the offset of the byte in array (the buffer index) at which to begin copying, and the count parameter gives the number of bytes that will be written to the stream. If the write operation is successful, the current position of the stream is advanced by the number of bytes written. If an exception occurs, the current position of the stream is unchanged.

NoteNote:

Use the CanWrite property to determine whether the current instance supports writing. For additional information, see CanWrite.

For a list of common I/O tasks, see Common I/O Tasks.

This code example is part of a larger example provided for the Lock method.

// Write the original file data.
if(fileStream.Length == 0)
{
    tempString = 
        lastRecordText + recordNumber.ToString();
    fileStream.Write(uniEncoding.GetBytes(tempString), 
        0, uniEncoding.GetByteCount(tempString));
}

// Write the original file data.
if ( fileStream.get_Length() == 0  ) {
    tempString = lastRecordText +(
        new Integer( recordNumber)).ToString();
    fileStream.Write(uniEncoding.GetBytes(tempString),
        0, uniEncoding.GetByteCount(tempString));
}
