This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public enum Base64FormattingOptions

Member nameDescription
NoneDoes not insert line breaks after every 76 characters in the string representation.
InsertLineBreaksInserts line breaks after every 76 characters in the string representation.

The ToBase64CharArray and ToBase64String methods convert the value of an array of 8-bit unsigned integers to an equivalent string representation that consists of base 64 digits. The string representation can contain one or more line breaks, where a line break is defined as a carriage return character (U+000D) followed by a line feed character (U+000A).

The following code example demonstrates using the Base64FormattingOptions enumeration to break the output of the Convert.ToBase64String method into separate lines.
