CryptoStream.BeginWrite(Byte[], Int32, Int32, AsyncCallback, Object) CryptoStream.BeginWrite(Byte[], Int32, Int32, AsyncCallback, Object) CryptoStream.BeginWrite(Byte[], Int32, Int32, AsyncCallback, Object) CryptoStream.BeginWrite(Byte[], Int32, Int32, AsyncCallback, Object) Method

Definition

Begins an asynchronous write operation. (Consider using WriteAsync instead.)

public:
 override IAsyncResult ^ BeginWrite(cli::array <System::Byte> ^ buffer, int offset, int count, AsyncCallback ^ callback, System::Object ^ state);
public override IAsyncResult BeginWrite (byte[] buffer, int offset, int count, AsyncCallback callback, object state);
override this.BeginWrite : byte[] * int * int * AsyncCallback * obj -> IAsyncResult
Public Overrides Function BeginWrite (buffer As Byte(), offset As Integer, count As Integer, callback As AsyncCallback, state As Object) As IAsyncResult

Parameters

buffer
Byte[]

The buffer to write data from.

offset
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The byte offset in buffer from which to begin writing.

count
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The maximum number of bytes to write.

callback
AsyncCallback AsyncCallback AsyncCallback AsyncCallback

An optional asynchronous callback, to be called when the write is complete.

state
Object Object Object Object

A user-provided object that distinguishes this particular asynchronous write request from other requests.

Returns

An IAsyncResult that represents the asynchronous write, which could still be pending.

Exceptions

Attempted an asynchronous write past the end of the stream, or a disk error occurred.

One or more of the arguments is invalid.

The current Stream implementation does not support the write operation.

Remarks

In the .NET Framework 4 and earlier versions, you have to use methods such as BeginWrite and EndWrite to implement asynchronous I/O operations. These methods are still available in .NET to support legacy code; however, the new async methods, such as ReadAsync, WriteAsync, CopyToAsync, and FlushAsync, help you implement asynchronous I/O operations more easily.

Pass the IAsyncResult returned by the current method to EndWrite to ensure that the write completes and frees resources appropriately. EndWrite must be called once for every call to BeginWrite. You can do this either by using the same code that called BeginWrite or in a callback passed to BeginWrite. If an error occurs during an asynchronous write, an exception will not be thrown until EndWrite is called with the IAsyncResult returned by this method.

If a stream is writable, writing at the end of the stream expands the stream.

The current position in the stream is updated when you issue the asynchronous read or write, not when the I/O operation completes. Multiple simultaneous asynchronous requests render the request completion order uncertain.

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

If a stream is closed or you pass an invalid argument, exceptions are thrown immediately from BeginWrite. Errors that occur during an asynchronous write request, such as a disk failure during the I/O request, occur on the thread pool thread and throw exceptions when calling EndWrite.
