Console.Write Method (Object)

Writes the text representation of the specified object to the standard output stream.

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

<HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, UI := True)> _
Public Shared Sub Write ( _
	value As Object _


Type: System.Object

The value to write, or Nothing.


An I/O error occurred.

If value is Nothing, nothing is written and no exception is thrown. Otherwise, the ToString method of value is called to produce its string representation, and the resulting string is written to the standard output stream.


The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: UI. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.

The following example illustrates the use of the Write method.

Public Class FormatConverter
   Public Shared Sub Main()
      Dim lineInput As String
      lineInput = Console.ReadLine()
      While Not lineInput Is Nothing 
         Dim fields() As String = lineInput.Split(ControlChars.Tab)
         Dim isFirstField As Boolean = True 
         Dim item As String 
         For Each item In  fields
            If isFirstField Then
               isFirstField = False 
            End If 
            ' If the field represents a boolean, replace with a numeric representation. 
            End Try 
         Next item
         lineInput = Console.ReadLine()
      End While 
   End Sub 'Main
End Class 'FormatConverter
