Examples

The following example demonstrates how to read and write to an unmanaged array using the ReadInt64 and WriteInt64 methods.

static void ReadWriteInt64()
{
    // Allocate unmanaged memory. 
    int elementSize = 8;
    IntPtr unmanagedArray = Marshal.AllocHGlobal(10 * elementSize);

    // Set the 10 elements of the C-style unmanagedArray
    for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
    {
        Marshal.WriteInt64(unmanagedArray, i * elementSize, ((Int64)(i + 1)));
    }
    Console.WriteLine("Unmanaged memory written.");

    Console.WriteLine("Reading unmanaged memory:");
    // Print the 10 elements of the C-style unmanagedArray
    for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
    {
        Console.WriteLine(Marshal.ReadInt64(unmanagedArray, i * elementSize));
    }

    Marshal.FreeHGlobal(unmanagedArray);

    Console.WriteLine("Done. Press Enter to continue.");
    Console.ReadLine();
}
Sub ReadWriteInt64()
    ' Allocate unmanaged memory. 
    Dim elementSize As Integer = 8
    Dim unmanagedArray As IntPtr = Marshal.AllocHGlobal(10 * elementSize)

    ' Set the 10 elements of the C-style unmanagedArray
    For i As Integer = 0 To 9
        Marshal.WriteInt64(unmanagedArray, i * elementSize, CType(i + 1, Int64))
    Next i
    Console.WriteLine("Unmanaged memory written.")

    Console.WriteLine("Reading unmanaged memory:")
    ' Print the 10 elements of the C-style unmanagedArray
    For i As Integer = 0 To 9
        Console.WriteLine(Marshal.ReadInt64(unmanagedArray, i * elementSize))
    Next i

    Marshal.FreeHGlobal(unmanagedArray)

    Console.WriteLine("Done. Press Enter to continue.")
    Console.ReadLine()
End Sub

The following example demonstrates how to use the ReadInt64 method to read the value of an unmanaged __int64 variable.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Runtime::InteropServices;



void main()
{
	// Create an unmanaged __int64.
	__int64 myVal = 42;

	// Read the value as a managed Int64.
    Int64 ^ myManagedVal = Marshal::ReadInt64((IntPtr) &myVal);

	// Display the value to the console.
	Console::WriteLine(myManagedVal);
}

Remarks

ReadInt64 has an implied offset of 0. This method enables direct interaction with an unmanaged C-style Int64 array, eliminating the expense of copying an entire unmanaged array (using Marshal.Copy) to a separate managed array before reading its element values.

Reading from unaligned memory locations is supported.

Security

SecurityCriticalAttribute
requires full trust for the immediate caller. This member cannot be used by partially trusted or transparent code.

ReadInt64(IntPtr, Int32) ReadInt64(IntPtr, Int32) ReadInt64(IntPtr, Int32) ReadInt64(IntPtr, Int32)

Reads a 64-bit signed integer at a given offset from unmanaged memory.

public:
 static long ReadInt64(IntPtr ptr, int ofs);
[System.Security.SecurityCritical]
public static long ReadInt64 (IntPtr ptr, int ofs);
static member ReadInt64 : nativeint * int -> int64
Public Shared Function ReadInt64 (ptr As IntPtr, ofs As Integer) As Long
Parameters
ptr
IntPtr IntPtr IntPtr IntPtr

The base address in unmanaged memory from which to read.

ofs
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

An additional byte offset, which is added to the ptr parameter before reading.

Returns

The 64-bit signed integer read from unmanaged memory at the given offset.

Exceptions

Base address (ptr) plus offset byte (ofs) produces a null or invalid address.

    }
    Console.WriteLine("Unmanaged memory written.");

    Console.WriteLine("Reading unmanaged memory:");

    {
        Console.WriteLine(Marshal.ReadInt64(unmanagedArray, i * elementSize));
    }

    Marshal.FreeHGlobal(unmanagedArray);

    Dim unmanagedArray As IntPtr = Marshal.AllocHGlobal(10 * elementSize)

    ' Set the 10 elements of the C-style unmanagedArray
    For i As Integer = 0 To 9
        Marshal.WriteInt64(unmanagedArray, i * elementSize, CType(i + 1, Int64))
    Next i
    Console.WriteLine("Unmanaged memory written.")

    Console.WriteLine("Reading unmanaged memory:")
    ' Print the 10 elements of the C-style unmanagedArray
    For i As Integer = 0 To 9
        Console.WriteLine(Marshal.ReadInt64(unmanagedArray, i * elementSize))
    Next i

    Marshal.FreeHGlobal(unmanagedArray)

    Console.WriteLine("Done. Press Enter to continue.")
    Console.ReadLine()
End Sub

The following example demonstrates how to use the ReadInt64 method to read the value of an unmanaged __int64 variable.


using namespace System;
using namespace System::Runtime::InteropServices;



void main()
{
    // Create an unmanaged __int64 pointer.
    __int64 * myVal;
    __int64 tmp = 42;
    // Initialize it to another value.
    myVal = &tmp;

    // Read value as a managed Int64.
    Int64 ^ myManagedVal = Marshal::ReadInt64((IntPtr) myVal, 0);

    // Display the value to the console.
    Console::WriteLine(myManagedVal);
}
