Marshal.WriteIntPtr Method (Object, Int32, IntPtr)

 

Writes a processor native sized integer value to unmanaged memory.

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

[SecurityCriticalAttribute]
public static void WriteIntPtr(
	object ptr,
	int ofs,
	IntPtr val
)

Parameters

ptr
Type: System.Object

The base address in unmanaged memory of the target object.

ofs
Type: System.Int32

An additional byte offset, which is added to the ptr parameter before writing.

val
Type: System.IntPtr

The value to write.

Exception Condition
AccessViolationException

Base address (ptr) plus offset byte (ofs) produces a null or invalid address.

ArgumentException

ptr is an ArrayWithOffset object. This method does not accept ArrayWithOffset parameters.

WriteIntPtr enables direct interaction with an unmanaged C-style byte array, eliminating the expense of copying an entire unmanaged array (using Marshal.Copy) to a separate managed array before setting its element values.

Writing to unaligned memory locations is supported.

SecurityCriticalAttribute

requires full trust for the immediate caller. This member cannot be used by partially trusted or transparent code.
