XmlWriter.WriteChars(Char[], Int32, Int32) XmlWriter.WriteChars(Char[], Int32, Int32) XmlWriter.WriteChars(Char[], Int32, Int32) XmlWriter.WriteChars(Char[], Int32, Int32) Method

Definition

When overridden in a derived class, writes text one buffer at a time.

public:
 abstract void WriteChars(cli::array <char> ^ buffer, int index, int count);
public abstract void WriteChars (char[] buffer, int index, int count);
abstract member WriteChars : char[] * int * int -> unit
Public MustOverride Sub WriteChars (buffer As Char(), index As Integer, count As Integer)

Parameters

buffer
Char[]

Character array containing the text to write.

index
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

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

count
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The number of characters to write.

Exceptions

index or count is less than zero.

-or-

The buffer length minus index is less than count; the call results in surrogate pair characters being split or an invalid surrogate pair being written.

The buffer parameter value is not valid.

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."

Examples

using (XmlWriter writer = XmlWriter.Create("WriteChars.xml"))
{
	writer.WriteStartDocument();

	char[] ch = new char[4];
	ch[0] = 't';
	ch[1] = 'e';
	ch[2] = 'x';
	ch[3] = 't';

	writer.WriteStartElement("WriteCharacters");
	writer.WriteChars(ch, 0, ch.Length);
	writer.WriteEndElement();
	writer.WriteEndDocument();
}

Remarks

This method can be used to write large amounts of text one buffer at a time.

Special handling must be done to ensure the WriteChars method does not split surrogate pair characters across multiple buffer writes. The XML specification defines the valid ranges for surrogate pairs.

For the asynchronous version of this method, see WriteCharsAsync.
