PipeStream.WriteAsync Method

Definition

Overloads

WriteAsync(ReadOnlyMemory<Byte>, CancellationToken)

Asynchronously writes a sequence of bytes to the current stream, advances the current position within this stream by the number of bytes written, and monitors cancellation requests.

WriteAsync(Byte[], Int32, Int32, CancellationToken)

Asynchronously writes a specified number of bytes from a byte array starting at a specified position, advances the current position within this stream by the number of bytes written, and monitors cancellation requests.

WriteAsync(ReadOnlyMemory<Byte>, CancellationToken)

Asynchronously writes a sequence of bytes to the current stream, advances the current position within this stream by the number of bytes written, and monitors cancellation requests.

public override System.Threading.Tasks.ValueTask WriteAsync (ReadOnlyMemory<byte> buffer, System.Threading.CancellationToken cancellationToken = default);
override this.WriteAsync : ReadOnlyMemory<byte> * System.Threading.CancellationToken -> System.Threading.Tasks.ValueTask
Public Overrides Function WriteAsync (buffer As ReadOnlyMemory(Of Byte), Optional cancellationToken As CancellationToken = Nothing) As ValueTask

Parameters

buffer
ReadOnlyMemory<Byte>

The region of memory to write data from.

cancellationToken
CancellationToken

The token to monitor for cancellation requests. The default value is None.

Returns

ValueTask

A task that represents the asynchronous write operation.

Exceptions

Stream does not support writing.

Cannot access a closed pipe.

The pipe is broken.

The pipe hasn't been connected yet.

-or-

The pipe is in a disconnected state.

-or-

The pipe handle has not been set. (Did your PipeStream implementation call InitializeHandle(SafePipeHandle, Boolean, Boolean)?

Remarks

The WriteAsync method enables you to perform resource-intensive I/O operations without blocking the main thread. This performance consideration is particularly important in applications where a time-consuming stream operation can block the UI thread and make your app appear as if it is not working. The async methods are used in conjunction with the async and await keywords in Visual Basic and C#.

Use the CanWrite property to determine whether the current instance supports writing.

If the operation is canceled before it completes, the returned task contains the Canceled value for the Status property.

Applies to

WriteAsync(Byte[], Int32, Int32, CancellationToken)

Asynchronously writes a specified number of bytes from a byte array starting at a specified position, advances the current position within this stream by the number of bytes written, and monitors cancellation requests.

public:
 override System::Threading::Tasks::Task ^ WriteAsync(cli::array <System::Byte> ^ buffer, int offset, int count, System::Threading::CancellationToken cancellationToken);
public override System.Threading.Tasks.Task WriteAsync (byte[] buffer, int offset, int count, System.Threading.CancellationToken cancellationToken);
override this.WriteAsync : byte[] * int * int * System.Threading.CancellationToken -> System.Threading.Tasks.Task
Public Overrides Function WriteAsync (buffer As Byte(), offset As Integer, count As Integer, cancellationToken As CancellationToken) As Task

Parameters

buffer
Byte[]

The buffer to write data from.

offset
Int32

The zero-based byte offset in buffer from which to begin copying bytes to the stream.

count
Int32

The maximum number of bytes to write.

cancellationToken
CancellationToken

The token to monitor for cancellation requests. The default value is None.

Returns

Task

A task that represents the asynchronous write operation.

Exceptions

buffer is null.

The offset is negative.

-or-

The count is negative.

buffer.Length - offset is less than count.

Stream does not support writing.

Cannot access a closed pipe.

The pipe is broken.

The pipe hasn't been connected yet.

-or-

The pipe is in a disconnected state.

-or-

The pipe handle has not been set. (Did your PipeStream implementation call InitializeHandle(SafePipeHandle, Boolean, Boolean)?
