XmlWriter.WriteBinHex(Byte[], Int32, Int32) XmlWriter.WriteBinHex(Byte[], Int32, Int32) XmlWriter.WriteBinHex(Byte[], Int32, Int32) XmlWriter.WriteBinHex(Byte[], Int32, Int32) Method

Definition

When overridden in a derived class, encodes the specified binary bytes as BinHex and writes out the resulting text.

public:
 virtual void WriteBinHex(cli::array <System::Byte> ^ buffer, int index, int count);
public virtual void WriteBinHex (byte[] buffer, int index, int count);
abstract member WriteBinHex : byte[] * int * int -> unit
override this.WriteBinHex : byte[] * int * int -> unit
Public Overridable Sub WriteBinHex (buffer As Byte(), index As Integer, count As Integer)

Parameters

buffer
Byte[]

Byte array to encode.

index
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The position in the buffer indicating the start of the bytes to write.

count
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The number of bytes to write.

Exceptions

The writer is closed or in error state. -or-

An XmlWriter method was called before a previous asynchronous operation finished. In this case, InvalidOperationException is thrown with the message "An asynchronous operation is already in progress."

index or count is less than zero.

-or-

The buffer length minus index is less than count.

Examples

The following example uses the WriteBinHex method to write BinHex data. The BinHex data is embedded within an <image> element.


public static void BinHexEncodeImageFile() {

  int bufferSize = 1000;
  byte[] buffer = new byte[bufferSize];
  int readBytes = 0;
	
  using (XmlWriter writer = XmlWriter.Create("output.xml")) {
       FileStream inputFile = new FileStream(@"C:\artFiles\sunset.jpg", FileMode.OpenOrCreate, 
                                                                    FileAccess.Read, FileShare.Read);
       writer.WriteStartDocument();
       writer.WriteStartElement("image");
       BinaryReader br = new BinaryReader(inputFile);
       Console.WriteLine("\r\nWriting BinHex data...");

       do {
          readBytes = br.Read(buffer, 0, bufferSize);
          writer.WriteBinHex(buffer, 0, readBytes);
       } while (bufferSize <= readBytes);
       br.Close();

    writer.WriteEndElement();// </image>
    writer.WriteEndDocument();
		
  }
}
Public Shared Sub BinHexEncodeImageFile() 
    
    Dim bufferSize As Integer = 1000
    Dim buffer(bufferSize) As Byte
    Dim readBytes As Integer = 0
    
    Using writer As XmlWriter = XmlWriter.Create("output.xml")

            Dim inputFile As New FileStream("C:\artFiles\sunset.jpg", FileMode.OpenOrCreate, FileAccess.Read, FileShare.Read)
            writer.WriteStartDocument()
            writer.WriteStartElement("image")
            Dim br As New BinaryReader(inputFile)
            Console.WriteLine(vbCr + vbLf + "Writing BinHex data...")
            
            Do
                readBytes = br.Read(buffer, 0, bufferSize)
                writer.WriteBinHex(buffer, 0, readBytes)
            Loop While bufferSize <= readBytes
            br.Close()

        writer.WriteEndElement() ' </image>
        writer.WriteEndDocument()

    End Using
 
End Sub 'BinHexEncodeImageFile
