Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]

	char* value
)
J# does not support APIs that consume or return unsafe types.
JScript does not support APIs that consume or return unsafe types.

Parameters

value

A pointer to a null terminated array of Unicode characters.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The current process does not have read access to all the addressed characters.

ArgumentNullException

value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

ArgumentException

value specifies an array that contains an invalid Unicode character, or value specifies an address less than 64000.

If value is a null pointer, an Empty instance is initialized.

This constructor copies the sequence of Unicode characters at the specified pointer until a null character (hexadecimal 0x00) is reached.

If the specified array is not null-terminated, the behavior of this constructor is system dependent. For example, such a situation might cause an access violation.

In C#, this constructor is defined only in the context of unsafe code.
