UnicodeEncoding Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the UnicodeEncoding class.

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

public UnicodeEncoding()

This constructor creates an instance that uses the little endian byte order, provides a Unicode byte order mark, and does not throw an exception when an invalid encoding is detected.

NoteNote

For security reasons, your applications are recommended to enable error detection by using the constructor that accepts a throwOnInvalidBytes parameter and setting that parameter to true.

The following example demonstrates how to create a new UnicodeEncoding instance and display the name of the encoding.

using System;
using System.Text;

class UnicodeEncodingExample {
    public static void Main() {
        UnicodeEncoding unicode = new UnicodeEncoding();
        String encodingName = unicode.EncodingName;
        Console.WriteLine("Encoding name: " + encodingName);
    }
}
