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

public override void WriteByte(
	byte value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Byte

The byte to write.

Exception Condition

The stream does not support writing. For additional information see CanWrite.

-or-

The current position is at the end of the stream, and the capacity cannot be modified.

ObjectDisposedException

The current stream is closed.

This method overrides WriteByte.

Except for a MemoryStream constructed with a byte[] parameter, write operations at the end of a MemoryStream expand the MemoryStream.

This code example is part of a larger example provided for the MemoryStream class.

// Write the second string to the stream, byte by byte.
count = 0;
while(count < secondString.Length)
{
    memStream.WriteByte(secondString[count++]);
}
