Need to replace old cracked ceiling fixture.
Brought new fixture.Has black and a white wire.Can I disconnect the old wiring from the old fixture and connect the new wires from the new fixture with the light switch that operates the light in the off position?

Yes, you can. And there's a 50/50 chance you won't get electricuted!

Seriously, you cannot be sure there is no power in the ceiling box merely by shutting off the switch. It might work, but it might not. Shut off the circuit breaker!
