XmlWriter.WriteBase64 Method

When overridden in a derived class, encodes the specified binary bytes as Base64 and writes out the resulting text.

Namespace:  System.Xml
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)

'Declaration
Public MustOverride Sub WriteBase64 ( _
	buffer As Byte(), _
	index As Integer, _
	count As Integer _
)

Parameters

buffer
Type: System.Byte()
Byte array to encode.
index
Type: System.Int32
The position in the buffer indicating the start of the bytes to write.
count
Type: System.Int32
The number of bytes to write.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

buffer is Nothing.

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

index or count is less than zero.

-or-

The buffer length minus index is less than count.

For example, the byte buffer may contain the binary contents of a GIF image. This clearly would not be valid XML. The Base64 encoding is designed to represent arbitrary byte sequences in a text form comprised of the 65 US-ASCII characters ([A-Za-z0-9+/=]) where each character encodes 6 bits of the binary data.
