StreamReader Constructor (String, Boolean)
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
path is an empty string ("").
path is null.
The file cannot be found.
The specified path is invalid; for example, it might refer to an unmapped drive.
path includes an incorrect or invalid syntax for file name, directory name, or volume label.
The path parameter can be a file name, including a file on a Universal Naming Convention (UNC) share.
The path parameter is not required to be a file stored on disk; it can be any part of a system that supports access using streams.
The detectEncodingFromByteOrderMarks parameter detects the encoding by looking at the first three bytes of the stream. It automatically recognizes UTF-8, little-endian Unicode, and big-endian Unicode text if the file starts with the appropriate byte order marks. Otherwise, the user-provided encoding is used. See the Encoding.GetPreamble method for more information.
