WriteInt16 Method (Object, Int32, Char)

Marshal.WriteInt16 Method (Object, Int32, Char)

Writes a 16-bit signed integer value to unmanaged memory.

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

public static void WriteInt16 (
	[InAttribute] [OutAttribute] Object ptr,
	int ofs,
	char val
)
public static void WriteInt16 (
	/** @attribute InAttribute() */ /** @attribute OutAttribute() */ Object ptr, 
	int ofs, 
	char val
)
public static function WriteInt16 (
	ptr : Object, 
	ofs : int, 
	val : char
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

ptr

The base address in unmanaged memory of the target object.

ofs

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

val

The value to write.

Exception typeCondition

AccessViolationException

Base address (ptr) plus offset byte (ofs) produces a a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or invalid address.

ArgumentException

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

WriteInt16 enables direct interaction with an unmanaged 16-bit signed array, eliminating the expense of copying an entire unmanaged array (using Marshal.Copy) to a separate managed array before setting its element values.

NoteNote:

This method uses SecurityAction.LinkDemand to prevent it from being called from untrusted code; only the immediate caller is required to have SecurityPermissionAttribute.UnmanagedCode permission. If your code can be called from partially trusted code, do not pass user input to Marshal class methods without validation. For important limitations on using the LinkDemand member, see Demand vs. LinkDemand.
