Parameters

value

The string to write to the stream. If value is null, nothing is written.

Exception typeCondition

ObjectDisposedException

AutoFlush is true or the StreamWriter buffer is full, and current writer is closed.

NotSupportedException

AutoFlush is true or the StreamWriter buffer is full, and the contents of the buffer cannot be written to the underlying fixed size stream because the StreamWriter is at the end the stream.

IOException

An I/O error occurs.

This method overrides TextWriter.Write.

The specified String is written to the underlying stream unless the end of the stream is reached prematurely.

Flush is invoked automatically if AutoFlush is true. If value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), no entries are written.
