Console.MoveBufferArea Method in C#

  • Last Updated : 08 Mar, 2019

Console.MoveBufferArea Method is used to move the specified screen area to destination area.

Syntax: public static void MoveBufferArea (int sourceLeft, int sourceTop, int sourceWidth, int sourceHeight, int targetLeft, int targetTop);

Parameters:
sourceLeft: The leftmost column of the source area.
sourceTop: The topmost row of the source area.
sourceWidth: The number of columns in the source area.
sourceHeight: The number of rows in the source area.
targetLeft: The leftmost column of the destination area.
targetTop: The topmost row of the destination area.

Exceptions:

  • ArgumentOutOfRangeException:
    • One or more of the parameters is less than zero.
    • If sourceLeft or targetLeft is greater than or equal to BufferWidth.
    • If sourceTop or targetTop is greater than or equal to BufferHeight.
    • If sourceTop + sourceHeight is greater than or equal to BufferHeight.
    • If sourceLeft + sourceWidth is greater than or equal to BufferWidth.
  • IOException: If an I/O error occured.

Example 1:






// C# program to print GeeksForGeeks
using System;
  
namespace GFG {
  
class Program {
  
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("GeeksForGeeks");
    }
}
}

Output:

Example 2:




// C# program to change area
// of GeeksForGeeks
using System;
  
namespace GFG {
  
class Program {
  
    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("GeeksForGeeks");
  
        // using the method
        Console.MoveBufferArea(0, 0, Console.BufferWidth,
                           Console.BufferHeight, 10, 10);
    }
}
}

Output:

Note:

  • See the difference of text positions in output images.
  • If the destination and source parameters specify a position located outside the boundaries of the current screen buffer, only the portion of the source area that fits within the destination area is copied. That is, the source area is clipped to fit the current screen buffer.
  • The MoveBufferArea method copies the source area to the destination area. If the destination area does not intersect the source area, the source area is filled with blanks using the current foreground and background colors. Otherwise, the intersected portion of the source area is not filled.
