Write Method

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Writes a block of bytes to the file stream.

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

public override void Write(
	byte[] buffer,
	int offset,
	int count
)

Parameters

buffer
Type: array<System..::..Byte>[]()[][]
The buffer containing data to write to the stream.
offset
Type: System..::..Int32
The zero-based byte offset in buffer from which to begin copying bytes to the stream.
count
Type: System..::..Int32
The maximum number of bytes to write.

This method overrides Write.

The offset parameter gives the offset of the byte in buffer (the buffer index) at which to begin copying, and the count parameter gives the number of bytes that will be written to the stream. If the write operation is successful, the current position of the stream is advanced by the number of bytes written. If an exception occurs, the current position of the stream is unchanged.

NoteNote

Use the CanWrite property to determine whether the current instance supports writing. For additional information, see CanWrite.

Do not interrupt a thread that is performing a write operation. Although the application may appear to run successfully after the thread is unblocked, the interruption can decrease your application's performance and reliability.
