Marshal::PtrToStringUni Method (IntPtr)
Allocates a managed String and copies all characters up to the first null character from an unmanaged Unicode string into it.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
The address of the first character of the unmanaged string.
Return ValueType: System::String^
A managed string that holds a copy of the unmanaged string if the value of the ptr parameter is not null; otherwise, this method returns null.
PtrToStringUni is useful for custom marshaling or for use when mixing managed and unmanaged code. Because this method creates a copy of the unmanaged string's contents, you must free the original string as appropriate. This method provides the opposite functionality of the Marshal::StringToCoTaskMemUni and Marshal::StringToHGlobalUni methods.
requires full trust for the immediate caller. This member cannot be used by partially trusted or transparent code.
