Marshal.WriteIntPtr Method (Object, Int32, IntPtr)

Note: This API is now obsolete.

Writes a processor native sized integer value to unmanaged memory.

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

[<ObsoleteAttribute("WriteIntPtr(Object, Int32, IntPtr) may be unavailable in future releases.")>]
static member WriteIntPtr : 
        ptr:Object * 
        ofs:int * 
        val:IntPtr -> unit

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.

ExceptionCondition
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.
