Namespace:  System.IO.MemoryMappedFiles
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

[SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.Demand, Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.UnmanagedCode)]
public MemoryMappedViewAccessor CreateViewAccessor(
	long offset,
	long size,
	MemoryMappedFileAccess access
)

Parameters

offset
Type: System.Int64
The byte at which to start the view.
size
Type: System.Int64
The size of the view. Specify 0 (zero) to create a view that starts at offset and ends approximately at the end of the memory-mapped file.
access
Type: System.IO.MemoryMappedFiles.MemoryMappedFileAccess
One of the enumeration values that specifies the type of access allowed to the memory-mapped file. The default is ReadWrite.

Return Value

Type: System.IO.MemoryMappedFiles.MemoryMappedViewAccessor
A randomly accessible block of memory.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

offset or size is a negative value.

-or-

size is greater than the logical address space.

UnauthorizedAccessException

access is invalid for the memory-mapped file.

IOException

An I/O error occurred.

You can use the view returned by this method for random access to a memory-mapped file.

To create a complete view of the memory-mapped file, specify 0 (zero) for the size parameter. If you do this, the size of the view might be smaller or larger than the size of the source file on disk. This is because views are provided in units of system pages, and the size of the view is rounded up to the next system page size.
