String Constructor (SByte*)
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration Visual Basic does not support APIs that consume or return unsafe types. 'Usage Visual Basic does not support APIs that consume or return unsafe types.
A pointer to a null terminated array of 8-bit signed integers.
value is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
A new instance of String could not be initialized using value, assuming value is encoded in ASCII.
The length of the new string to initialize, which is determined by the null termination character of value, is too large to allocate.
value specifies an invalid address.
The value parameter is assumed to point to an array representing a string encoded in ASCII; that is, the string is encoded using the ANSI code page.
This constructor processes characters from value starting from the location specified by the pointer until a null character (hexadecimal 0x00) is reached.
If the specified array is not null-terminated, the behavior of this constructor is system dependent. For example, such a situation might cause an access violation.
In C#, this constructor is defined only in the context of unsafe code.
