UIntPtr.Addition Operator

Adds an offset to the value of an unsigned pointer.

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

public static UIntPtr operator +(
	UIntPtr pointer,
	int offset
)

Parameters

pointer
Type: System.UIntPtr

The unsigned pointer to add the offset to.

offset
Type: System.Int32

The offset to add.

Return Value

Type: System.UIntPtr
A new unsigned pointer that reflects the addition of offset to pointer.

The Addition method defines the addition operation for UIntPtr objects. It enables code such as the following.

int[] arr = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 };
UIntPtr ptr = (UIntPtr) arr[0];
for (int ctr = 0; ctr < arr.Length; ctr++)
{
   UIntPtr newPtr = ptr + ctr;
   Console.WriteLine(newPtr);
} 

Languages that do not support custom operators can call the Add method instead.

The addition operation does not throw an exception if the result is too large to represent as a pointer on the specified platform. Instead, it is performed in an unchecked context.
