Initializes a new instance of the UTF8Encoding class.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
This constructor creates an instance that does not provide a Unicode byte order mark and does not throw an exception when an invalid encoding is detected.
For security reasons, your applications are recommended to enable error detection by using the constructor that accepts a throwOnInvalidBytes parameter and setting that parameter to true.
The following example demonstrates how to create a new UTF8Encoding instance and display the name of the encoding.
Windows 7, Windows Vista SP1 or later, Windows XP SP3, Windows XP SP2 x64 Edition, Windows Server 2008 (Server Core not supported), Windows Server 2008 R2 (Server Core supported with SP1 or later), Windows Server 2003 SP2
The .NET Framework does not support all versions of every platform. For a list of the supported versions, see .NET Framework System Requirements.
