Base64FormattingOptions Enumeration

Note: This enumeration is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Specifies whether relevant System.Convert.ToBase64CharArray and System.Convert.ToBase64String methods insert line breaks in their output.

This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

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

public enum class Base64FormattingOptions
/** @attribute FlagsAttribute() */ 
public enum Base64FormattingOptions
public enum Base64FormattingOptions

 Member nameDescription
InsertLineBreaksInserts line breaks after every 76 characters in the string representation. 
NoneDoes not insert line breaks after every 76 characters in the string representation. 

The ToBase64CharArray and ToBase64String methods convert the value of an array of 8-bit unsigned integers to an equivalent string representation that consists of base 64 digits. The string representation can contain one or more line breaks, where a line break is defined as a carriage return character (U+000D) followed by a line feed character (U+000A).

The following code example demonstrates using the Base64FormattingOptions enumeration to break the output of the System.Convert.ToBase64String method into separate lines.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
