UTF7Encoding.GetByteCount Method (Char*, Int32)
Calculates the number of bytes produced by encoding a set of characters starting at the specified character pointer.
This API is not CLS-compliant.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
[SecurityCriticalAttribute] [CLSCompliantAttribute(false)] [ComVisibleAttribute(false)] public override unsafe int GetByteCount( char* chars, int count )
A pointer to the first character to encode.
The number of characters to encode.
Return ValueType: System.Int32
The number of bytes produced by encoding the specified characters.
chars is null (Nothing in Visual Basic .NET).
count is less than zero.
The resulting number of bytes is greater than the maximum number that can be returned as an int.
To calculate the exact array size that GetBytes requires to store the resulting bytes, the application uses GetByteCount. To calculate the maximum array size, the application should use GetMaxByteCount. The GetByteCount method generally allows allocation of less memory, while the GetMaxByteCount method generally executes faster.
Requires full trust for the immediate caller. This member cannot be used by partially trusted or transparent code.
