Writes the specified string value, followed by the current line terminator, to the standard output stream.

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

[<HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, UI = true)>]
static member WriteLine : 
        value:string -> unit


Type: System.String

The value to write.

Exception Condition

An I/O error occurred.

If value is null, only the line terminator is written to the standard output stream.

For more information about the line terminator, see the Remarks section of the WriteLine() method.

The example changes the line terminator from its default value of "\r\n" or vbCrLf to "\r\n\r\n" or vbCrLf + vbCrLf. It then calls the WriteLine() and WriteLine(String) methods to display output to the console.
