Not applicable.



The array of characters from which to write text to the output stream.


The index location in the array where writing begins.


The number of characters to write to the output stream.

The Write method generates any tabs that are pending, and then calls the Write base method.

This section provides two code examples. The first one demonstrates how to create a character array. The second one demonstrates how to use the array.

These code examples generate the following markup:




The following code example shows how to create an array of characters that spell out hello world. Included in the array is the SpaceChar field, which creates a space between the two words.

private char[] testChars = {'h', 'e', 'l', 'l', 'o',
    HtmlTextWriter.SpaceChar ,'w', 'o', 'r', 'l', 'd'};

The following portion of the code example uses the index and count parameters of the Write method to render the first five characters of the array created in the preceding example.

// Render a subarray of a character array
// as the contents of a <label> element.
writer.Write(testChars, 0, 5);
