MemoryStream Constructor (Int32)
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration Public Sub New ( _ capacity As Integer _ ) 'Usage Dim capacity As Integer Dim instance As New MemoryStream(capacity)
The initial size of the internal array in bytes.
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 capacity automatically increases when you use the SetLength method to set the length to a value larger than the capacity of the current stream. Except for a MemoryStream constructed with a byte parameter, write operations at the end of a MemoryStream expand the MemoryStream.
This constructor exposes the underlying stream that GetBuffer returns.
