Console.Write Method (Object)

Writes the text representation of the specified object to the standard output stream.

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

public static void Write (
	Object value
)
public static void Write (
	Object value
)
public static function Write (
	value : Object
)

Parameters

value

The value to write, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Exception typeCondition

IOException

An I/O error occurred.

If value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), nothing is written and no exception is thrown. Otherwise, the ToString method of value is called to produce its string representation, and the resulting string is written to the standard output stream.

The following code example illustrates the use of the Write method.

public class FormatConverter {
    public static void Main(string[] args) {
        string lineInput;
        while ((lineInput = Console.ReadLine()) != null) {
            string[] fields = lineInput.Split(new char[] {'\t'});
            bool isFirstField = true;
            foreach(string item in fields) {
                if (isFirstField)
                    isFirstField = false;
                else
                    Console.Write(',');
                // If the field represents a boolean, replace with a numeric representation.
                try {
                    Console.Write(Convert.ToByte(Convert.ToBoolean(item)));
                }
                catch(FormatException) {
                    Console.Write(item);
                }
            }
            Console.WriteLine();
        }
    }
}

public class FormatConverter
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        String lineInput;

        while (((lineInput = Console.ReadLine()) != null)) {
            String fields[] = lineInput.Split(new char[] { '\t' });
            boolean isFirstField = true;
            String item = null;
            for (int iCtr = 0; iCtr < fields.length; iCtr++) {
                item = fields[iCtr];
                if (isFirstField) {                
                    isFirstField = false;

                // representation.

                    Console.Write(Convert.ToByte(Convert.ToBoolean(item)));
                }
                catch (FormatException exp) {
