Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public MemoryStream ( byte buffer, int index, int count, bool writable, bool publiclyVisible )
public MemoryStream ( byte buffer, int index, int count, boolean writable, boolean publiclyVisible )
public function MemoryStream ( buffer : byte, index : int, count : int, writable : boolean, publiclyVisible : boolean )
The array of unsigned bytes from which to create this stream.
The index into buffer at which the stream begins.
The length of the stream in bytes.
The setting of the CanWrite property, which determines whether the stream supports writing.
true to enable GetBuffer, which returns the unsigned byte array from which the stream was created; otherwise, false.
For an example of creating a file and writing text to a file, see How to: Write Text to a File. For an example of reading text from a file, see How to: Read Text from a File. For an example of reading from and writing to a binary file, see How to: Read and Write to a Newly Created Data File.
The new stream instance can be written to, but the Capacity of the underlying byte array cannot be changed. The length of the stream cannot be set to a value greater than the initial length of the specified byte array; however, the stream can be truncated (see SetLength).
