String Constructor (SByte*, Int32, Int32)
Initializes a new instance of the String class to the value indicated by a specified pointer to an array of 8-bit signed integers, a starting character position within that array, and a length.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
value is Nothing.
startIndex or length is less than zero.
The address specified by value + startIndex is too large for the current platform; that is, the address calculation overflowed.
The length of the new string to initialize is too large to allocate.
The address specified by value + startIndex is less than 64K.
A new instance of String could not be initialized using value, assuming value is encoded in ANSI.
value, startIndex, and length collectively specify an invalid address.
The value parameter is assumed to point to an array representing a string encoded using the default ANSI code page (that is, the encoding method specified by Encoding.Default).
Because the default ANSI code page is system-dependent, the string created by this constructor from identical signed byte arrays may differ on different systems. Instead of using a signed byte array to instantiate a string, the recommended alternative is to use any of the overloads that take either an array of Char (the String.String(Char()) and String.String(Char(), Int32, Int32) constructors) or a pointer to an array of Char (the String.String(Char*) and String.String(Char*, Int32, Int32) constructors) as parameters.
If length is zero, the new instance is initialized to the empty string ("").
This constructor processes characters from value starting at startIndex and ending at (startIndex + length - 1).
If the specified range is outside of the memory allocated for the sequence of characters, the behavior of this constructor is system dependent. For example, such a situation might cause an access violation.
In C#, this constructor is defined only in the context of unsafe code.
requires full trust for the immediate caller. This member cannot be used by partially trusted or transparent code.
