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.
