MemoryStream Methods

The MemoryStream type exposes the following members.

  Name Description
Public method BeginRead Begins an asynchronous read operation. (Consider using ReadAsync instead; see the Remarks section.) (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method BeginWrite Begins an asynchronous write operation. (Consider using WriteAsync instead; see the Remarks section.) (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method Close Closes the current stream and releases any resources (such as sockets and file handles) associated with the current stream. Instead of calling this method, ensure that the stream is properly disposed. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method CopyTo(Stream) Reads the bytes from the current stream and writes them to another stream. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method CopyTo(Stream, Int32) Reads the bytes from the current stream and writes them to another stream, using a specified buffer size. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method CopyToAsync(Stream) Asynchronously reads the bytes from the current stream and writes them to another stream. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method CopyToAsync(Stream, Int32) Asynchronously reads the bytes from the current stream and writes them to another stream, using a specified buffer size. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method CopyToAsync(Stream, Int32, CancellationToken) Asynchronously reads all the bytes from the current stream and writes them to another stream, using a specified buffer size and cancellation token. (Overrides Stream.CopyToAsync(Stream, Int32, CancellationToken).)
Public method CreateObjRef Creates an object that contains all the relevant information required to generate a proxy used to communicate with a remote object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Protected method CreateWaitHandle Obsolete. Allocates a WaitHandle object. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method Dispose() Releases all resources used by the Stream. (Inherited from Stream.)
Protected method Dispose(Boolean) Releases the unmanaged resources used by the MemoryStream class and optionally releases the managed resources. (Overrides Stream.Dispose(Boolean).)
Public method EndRead Waits for the pending asynchronous read to complete. (Consider using ReadAsync instead; see the Remarks section.) (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method EndWrite Ends an asynchronous write operation. (Consider using WriteAsync instead; see the Remarks section.) (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method Equals(Object) Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Flush Overrides the Stream.Flush method so that no action is performed. (Overrides Stream.Flush().)
Public method FlushAsync() Asynchronously clears all buffers for this stream and causes any buffered data to be written to the underlying device. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method FlushAsync(CancellationToken) Asynchronously clears all buffers for this stream, and monitors cancellation requests. (Overrides Stream.FlushAsync(CancellationToken).)
Public method GetBuffer Returns the array of unsigned bytes from which this stream was created.
Public method GetHashCode Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetLifetimeService Retrieves the current lifetime service object that controls the lifetime policy for this instance. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Public method GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method InitializeLifetimeService Obtains a lifetime service object to control the lifetime policy for this instance. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone() Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone(Boolean) Creates a shallow copy of the current MarshalByRefObject object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject.)
Protected method ObjectInvariant Infrastructure. Obsolete. Provides support for a Contract. (Inherited from Stream.)

In .NET Framework Client Profile, this member is overridden by ObjectInvariant().
Public method Read Reads a block of bytes from the current stream and writes the data to a buffer. (Overrides Stream.Read(Byte[], Int32, Int32).)
Public method ReadAsync(Byte[], Int32, Int32) Asynchronously reads a sequence of bytes from the current stream and advances the position within the stream by the number of bytes read. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method ReadAsync(Byte[], Int32, Int32, CancellationToken) Asynchronously reads a sequence of bytes from the current stream, advances the position within the stream by the number of bytes read, and monitors cancellation requests. (Overrides Stream.ReadAsync(Byte[], Int32, Int32, CancellationToken).)
Public method ReadByte Reads a byte from the current stream. (Overrides Stream.ReadByte().)
Public method Seek Sets the position within the current stream to the specified value. (Overrides Stream.Seek(Int64, SeekOrigin).)
Public method SetLength Sets the length of the current stream to the specified value. (Overrides Stream.SetLength(Int64).)
Public method ToArray Writes the stream contents to a byte array, regardless of the Position property.
Public method ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Write Writes a block of bytes to the current stream using data read from a buffer. (Overrides Stream.Write(Byte[], Int32, Int32).)
Public method WriteAsync(Byte[], Int32, Int32) Asynchronously writes a sequence of bytes to the current stream and advances the current position within this stream by the number of bytes written. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method WriteAsync(Byte[], Int32, Int32, CancellationToken) Asynchronously writes a sequence of bytes to the current stream, advances the current position within this stream by the number of bytes written, and monitors cancellation requests. (Overrides Stream.WriteAsync(Byte[], Int32, Int32, CancellationToken).)
Public method WriteByte Writes a byte to the current stream at the current position. (Overrides Stream.WriteByte(Byte).)
Public method WriteTo Writes the entire contents of this memory stream to another stream.

  Name Description
Public Extension Method AsInputStream Converts a managed stream in the .NET for Windows Store apps to an input stream in the Windows Runtime. (Defined by WindowsRuntimeStreamExtensions.)
Public Extension Method AsOutputStream Converts a managed stream in the .NET for Windows Store apps to an output stream in the Windows Runtime. (Defined by WindowsRuntimeStreamExtensions.)
Public Extension Method GetWindowsRuntimeBuffer() Overloaded. Returns a Windows.Storage.Streams.IBuffer interface that represents the same memory as the specified memory stream. (Defined by WindowsRuntimeBufferExtensions.)
Public Extension Method GetWindowsRuntimeBuffer(Int32, Int32) Overloaded. Returns a Windows.Storage.Streams.IBuffer interface that represents a region within the memory that the specified memory stream represents. (Defined by WindowsRuntimeBufferExtensions.)
