When it is called by trusted applications, writes a character array to the stream.

Namespace:  System.IO
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Syntax

'Declaration
Public Overrides Sub Write ( _
    buffer As Char() _
)
public override void Write(
    char[] buffer
)

Parameters

  • buffer
    Type: array<System.Char[]
    A character array containing the data to write. If buffer is nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), nothing is written.

Exceptions

Exception Condition
IOException

An I/O error occurs.

ObjectDisposedException

AutoFlush is true or the StreamWriter buffer is full, and current writer is closed.

NotSupportedException

AutoFlush is true or the StreamWriter buffer is full, and the contents of the buffer cannot be written to the underlying fixed size stream because the StreamWriter is at the end the stream.

Remarks

This method overrides TextWriter.Write.

The specified characters are written to the underlying stream unless the end of the stream is reached prematurely. If AutoFlush is true, Flush is invoked automatically.

This method might provide faster performance than Write because it has fewer arguments to check.
