Marshal::ReadInt64 Method (IntPtr, Int32)

Reads a 64-bit signed integer at a given offset from unmanaged memory.

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

public:
static long long ReadInt64(
	IntPtr ptr, 
	int ofs
)

Parameters

ptr
Type: System::IntPtr

The base address in unmanaged memory from which to read.

ofs
Type: System::Int32

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

Return Value

Type: System::Int64
The 64-bit signed integer read from unmanaged memory at the given offset.

ExceptionCondition
AccessViolationException

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

ReadInt64 enables direct interaction with an unmanaged 64-bit signed array, eliminating the expense of copying an entire unmanaged array (using Marshal::Copy) to a separate managed array before reading its element values.

Reading from unaligned memory locations is supported.

The following example demonstrates how to read and write to an unmanaged array using the ReadInt64 and WriteInt64 methods.

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

The following example demonstrates how to use the ReadInt64 method to read the value of an unmanaged __int64 variable.


using namespace System;
using namespace System::Runtime::InteropServices;



void main()
{
    // Create an unmanaged __int64 pointer.
    __int64 * myVal;
    __int64 tmp = 42;
    // Initialize it to another value.
    myVal = &tmp;

    // Read value as a managed Int64.
    Int64 ^ myManagedVal = Marshal::ReadInt64((IntPtr) myVal, 0);

    // Display the value to the console.
    Console::WriteLine(myManagedVal);
}
