EndOfStreamException Class

The exception that is thrown when reading is attempted past the end of a stream.

Namespace:  System.IO
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
[SerializableAttribute]
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
public class EndOfStreamException : IOException

EndOfStreamException uses the HRESULT COR_E_ENDOFSTREAM which has the value 0x80070026.

The following code example shows how to read and write Double data to memory by using the BinaryReader and BinaryWriter classes on top of the MemoryStream class.

using System;
using System.IO;

class BinaryRW
{
    static void Main()
    {
        int i;
        const int arrayLength = 1000;

        // Create random data to write to the stream.
        Random randomGenerator = new Random();
        double[] dataArray = new double[arrayLength];
        for(i = 0; i < arrayLength; i++)
        {
            dataArray[i] = 100.1 * randomGenerator.NextDouble();
        }

        using(BinaryWriter binWriter = 
            new BinaryWriter(new MemoryStream()))
        {
            // Write the data to the stream.
            Console.WriteLine("Writing data to the stream.");
            for(i = 0; i < arrayLength; i++)
            {
                binWriter.Write(dataArray[i]);
            }

            // Create a reader using the stream from the writer. 
            using(BinaryReader binReader = 
                new BinaryReader(binWriter.BaseStream))
            {
                try
                {
                    // Return to the beginning of the stream.
                    binReader.BaseStream.Position = 0;

                    // Read and verify the data.
                    Console.WriteLine("Verifying the written data.");
                    for(i = 0; i < arrayLength; i++)
                    {
                        if(binReader.ReadDouble() != dataArray[i])
                        {
                            Console.WriteLine("Error writing data.");
                            break;
                        }
                    }
                    Console.WriteLine("The data was written " +
                        "and verified.");
                }
                catch(EndOfStreamException e)
                {
                    Console.WriteLine("Error writing data: {0}.",
                        e.GetType().Name);
                }
            }
        }
    }
