The character to write to the stream.

Exception Condition

An I/O error occurs.


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


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.

This method overrides TextWriter.Write.

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