BufferedStream Constructor (Stream, Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the BufferedStream class with the specified buffer size.

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

public BufferedStream(
	Stream stream,
	int bufferSize


Type: System.IO.Stream

The current stream.

Type: System.Int32

The buffer size in bytes.


stream is null.


bufferSize is negative.

A shared read/write buffer is allocated the first time a BufferedStream object is initialized with this constructor. The shared buffer is not used if all reads and writes are greater than or equal to bufferSize.

This code example is part of a larger example provided for the BufferedStream class.

// Create a NetworkStream that owns clientSocket and 
// then create a BufferedStream on top of the NetworkStream. 
// Both streams are disposed when execution exits the 
// using statement. 
    netStream = new NetworkStream(clientSocket, true),
    bufStream =
          new BufferedStream(netStream, streamBufferSize))
