BinaryWriter Methods





The BinaryWriter type exposes the following members.

Methods
  NameDescription
Public method Close Closes the current BinaryWriter and the underlying stream.
Public method Dispose Releases all resources used by the current instance of the BinaryWriter class.
Protected method Dispose(Boolean) Releases the unmanaged resources used by the BinaryWriter and optionally releases the managed resources.
Public method Equals(Object) Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Flush Clears all buffers for the current writer and causes any buffered data to be written to the underlying device.
Public method GetHashCode Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Seek Sets the position within the current stream.
Public method ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Write(Boolean) Writes a one-byte Boolean value to the current stream, with 0 representing false and 1 representing true.
Public method Write(Byte) Writes an unsigned byte to the current stream and advances the stream position by one byte.
Public method Write(Byte) Writes a byte array to the underlying stream.
Public method Write(Char) Writes a Unicode character to the current stream and advances the current position of the stream in accordance with the Encoding used and the specific characters being written to the stream.
Public method Write(Char) Writes a character array to the current stream and advances the current position of the stream in accordance with the Encoding used and the specific characters being written to the stream.
Public method Write(Decimal) Writes a decimal value to the current stream and advances the stream position by sixteen bytes.
Public method Write(Double) Writes an eight-byte floating-point value to the current stream and advances the stream position by eight bytes.
Public method Write(Int16) Writes a two-byte signed integer to the current stream and advances the stream position by two bytes.
Public method Write(Int32) Writes a four-byte signed integer to the current stream and advances the stream position by four bytes.
Public method Write(Int64) Writes an eight-byte signed integer to the current stream and advances the stream position by eight bytes.
Public method Write(SByte) Writes a signed byte to the current stream and advances the stream position by one byte.
Public method Write(Single) Writes a four-byte floating-point value to the current stream and advances the stream position by four bytes.
Public method Write(String) Writes a length-prefixed string to this stream in the current encoding of the BinaryWriter, and advances the current position of the stream in accordance with the encoding used and the specific characters being written to the stream.
Public method Write(UInt16) Writes a two-byte unsigned integer to the current stream and advances the stream position by two bytes.
Public method Write(UInt32) Writes a four-byte unsigned integer to the current stream and advances the stream position by four bytes.
Public method Write(UInt64) Writes an eight-byte unsigned integer to the current stream and advances the stream position by eight bytes.
Public method Write(Byte, Int32, Int32) Writes a region of a byte array to the current stream.
Public method Write(Char, Int32, Int32) Writes a section of a character array to the current stream, and advances the current position of the stream in accordance with the Encoding used and perhaps the specific characters being written to the stream.
Protected method Write7BitEncodedInt Writes a 32-bit integer in a compressed format.
