Guid Constructor (Int32, Int16, Int16, Byte, Byte, Byte, Byte, Byte, Byte, Byte, Byte)

Initializes a new instance of the Guid structure by using the specified integers and bytes.

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

public Guid(
	int a,
	short b,
	short c,
	byte d,
	byte e,
	byte f,
	byte g,
	byte h,
	byte i,
	byte j,
	byte k
)

Parameters

a
Type: System.Int32

The first 4 bytes of the GUID.

b
Type: System.Int16

The next 2 bytes of the GUID.

c
Type: System.Int16

The next 2 bytes of the GUID.

d
Type: System.Byte

The next byte of the GUID.

e
Type: System.Byte

The next byte of the GUID.

f
Type: System.Byte

The next byte of the GUID.

g
Type: System.Byte

The next byte of the GUID.

h
Type: System.Byte

The next byte of the GUID.

i
Type: System.Byte

The next byte of the GUID.

j
Type: System.Byte

The next byte of the GUID.

k
Type: System.Byte

The next byte of the GUID.

Specifying individual bytes in this manner can be used to circumvent byte order restrictions (big-endian or little-endian byte order) on particular types of computers.

The following example creates a GUID whose string representation is "0000000a-000b-000c-0001-020304050607".

using System;

public class Example
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      Guid g = new Guid(0xA, 0xB, 0xC, 
                        new Byte[] { 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 } );
      Console.WriteLine("{0:B}", g);
   }
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//        {0000000a-000b-000c-0001-020304050607}
