Namespace:   System.IO

public virtual void Write(
	object value


Type: System.Object

The object to write.

Exception Condition

The TextWriter is closed.


An I/O error occurs.

This overload is equivalent to the Write(String) overload.

If the specified object is null, no action is taken and no exception is thrown. Otherwise, the object's ToString method is called to produce the string representation, and the resulting string is then written to the output stream. The FormatProvider property, if not null, specifies the culture-specific formatting.
