MemoryStream.WriteByte Method

Writes a byte to the current stream at the current position.

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

public:
virtual void WriteByte (
	unsigned char value
) override
public void WriteByte (
	byte value
)
public override function WriteByte (
	value : byte
)

Parameters

value

The byte to write.

For an example of creating a file and writing text to a file, see How to: Write Text to a File. For an example of reading text from a file, see How to: Read Text from a File. For an example of reading from and writing to a binary file, see How to: Read and Write to a Newly Created Data File.

This method overrides WriteByte.

Except for a MemoryStream constructed with a byte[] parameter, write operations at the end of a MemoryStream expand the MemoryStream.

This code example is part of a larger example provided for the MemoryStream class.

// Write the second string to the stream, byte by byte.
count = 0;
while ( count < secondString->Length )
{
   memStream->WriteByte( secondString[ count++ ] );
}

// Write the second string to the stream, byte by byte.
count = 0;
while((count < secondString.length)) {
    memStream.WriteByte(secondString[count++]);
}
