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.

Call EndRead to determine how many bytes were read from the stream.

EndRead can be called once on every IAsyncResult from BeginRead.
