Overload List

Reads a 16-bit signed integer from the unmanaged memory.

Supported by the .NET Compact Framework.

[Visual Basic] Overloads Public Shared Function ReadInt16(IntPtr) As Short
[C#] public static short ReadInt16(IntPtr);
[C++] public: static short ReadInt16(IntPtr);

Reads a 16-bit signed integer from unmanaged memory.

Supported by the .NET Compact Framework.

[Visual Basic] Overloads Public Shared Function ReadInt16(IntPtr, Integer) As Short
[C#] public static short ReadInt16(IntPtr, int);
[C++] public: static short ReadInt16(IntPtr, int);
[JScript] public static function ReadInt16(IntPtr, int) : Int16;

Reads a 16-bit signed integer from unmanaged memory.

[Visual Basic] Overloads Public Shared Function ReadInt16(Object, Integer) As Short
[C#] public static short ReadInt16(object, int);
[C++] public: static short ReadInt16(Object, int);
[JScript] public static function ReadInt16(Object, int) : Int16;

Example

[Visual Basic, C#] The following example compares two ways of interacting with an unmanaged C-style Int16 array. The ReadInt16 method provides direct access to the array's element values.

[Visual Basic, C#] Note   This example shows how to use one of the overloaded versions of ReadInt16. For other examples that might be available, see the individual overload topics.
[Visual Basic] 
Dim unmanagedArray As IntPtr = ...
Dim i As Integer
' One way to print the 10 elements of the C-style unmanagedArray
Dim newArray As Int16(9)
Marshal.Copy(unmanagedArray, newArray, 0, 10)
For i = 0 To newArray.Length
  Console.WriteLine(newArray(i))
Next i
' Another way to print the 10 elements of the C-style unmanagedArray
For i = 0 To 10
  Console.WriteLine(Marshal.ReadInt16(unmanagedArray, i))
Next i
   
[C#] 
IntPtr unmanagedArray = ...;
// One way to print the 10 elements of the C-style unmanagedArray
byte [] newArray = new Int16[10];
Marshal.Copy(unmanagedArray, newArray, 0, 10);
for (int i = 0; i < newArray.Length; i++)
  Console.WriteLine(newArray[i]);
// Another way to print the 10 elements of the C-style unmanagedArray
for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
  Console.WriteLine(Marshal.ReadInt16(unmanagedArray, i));
