Marshal.WriteInt64 Method (Object, Int32, Int64)

Note: This API is now obsolete.

Writes a 64-bit signed integer value to unmanaged memory at a specified offset.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.InteropServices
Assemblies:   System.Runtime.InteropServices (in System.Runtime.InteropServices.dll)
  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[ObsoleteAttribute("WriteInt64(Object, Int32, Int64) may be unavailable in future releases.")]
public static void WriteInt64(
	Object ptr,
	int ofs,
	long val
)

Parameters

ptr
Type: System.Object

The base address in unmanaged memory of the target object.

ofs
Type: System.Int32

An additional byte offset, which is added to the ptr parameter before writing.

val
Type: System.Int64

The value to write.

ExceptionCondition
AccessViolationException

Base address (ptr) plus offset byte (ofs) produces a null or invalid address.

ArgumentException

ptr is an ArrayWithOffset object. This method does not accept ArrayWithOffset parameters.

WriteInt64 enables direct interaction with an unmanaged 64-bit signed array, eliminating the expense of copying an entire unmanaged array (using Marshal.Copy) to a separate managed array before setting its element values.

Writing to unaligned memory locations is supported.
