Decoder.GetChars Method (Byte*, Int32, Char*, Int32, Boolean)
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)] [ComVisibleAttribute(false)] public virtual int GetChars ( byte* bytes, int byteCount, char* chars, int charCount, bool flush )
A pointer to the first byte to decode.
The number of bytes to decode.
A pointer to the location at which to start writing the resulting set of characters.
The maximum number of characters to write.
true to clear the internal state of the decoder after the conversion; otherwise, false.
Return ValueThe actual number of characters written at the location indicated by the chars parameter.
bytes is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
chars is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
byteCount or charCount is less than zero.
charCount is less than the resulting number of characters.
If GetChars is called with flush set to false, trailing bytes at the end of the data block are stored in an internal buffer and used in the next decoding operation. Call GetCharCount on a block of data immediately before calling GetChars on the same block, so that any trailing bytes from the previous block are included in the calculation.
If GetChars is called with flush set to true, invalid bytes at the end of the data block are ignored and the internal buffer is cleared.
This method affects the state of the decoder.
