Stream.Write Method

Updated: December 2010

When overridden in a derived class, writes a sequence of bytes to the current stream and advances the current position within this stream by the number of bytes written.

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

public abstract void Write(
	byte[] buffer,
	int offset,
	int count
)

Parameters

buffer
Type: System.Byte[]
An array of bytes. This method copies count bytes from buffer to the current stream.
offset
Type: System.Int32
The zero-based byte offset in buffer at which to begin copying bytes to the current stream.
count
Type: System.Int32
The number of bytes to be written to the current stream.

Use the CanWrite property to determine whether the current instance supports writing.

If the write operation is successful, the position within the stream advances by the number of bytes written. If an exception occurs, the position within the stream remains unchanged.
