BinaryReader Methods

The BinaryReader type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public method Close Closes the current reader and the underlying stream.
Public method Dispose() Releases all resources used by the current instance of the BinaryReader class.
Protected method Dispose(Boolean) Releases the unmanaged resources used by the BinaryReader class and optionally releases the managed resources.
Public method Equals(Object) Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method FillBuffer Fills the internal buffer with the specified number of bytes read from the stream.
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 GetHashCode Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method PeekChar Returns the next available character and does not advance the byte or character position.
Public method Read() Reads characters from the underlying stream and advances the current position of the stream in accordance with the Encoding used and the specific character being read from the stream.
Public method Read(Byte[], Int32, Int32) Reads the specified number of bytes from the stream, starting from a specified point in the byte array.
Public method Read(Char[], Int32, Int32) Reads the specified number of characters from the stream, starting from a specified point in the character array.
Protected method Read7BitEncodedInt Reads in a 32-bit integer in compressed format.
Public method ReadBoolean Reads a Boolean value from the current stream and advances the current position of the stream by one byte.
Public method ReadByte Reads the next byte from the current stream and advances the current position of the stream by one byte.
Public method ReadBytes Reads the specified number of bytes from the current stream into a byte array and advances the current position by that number of bytes.
Public method ReadChar Reads the next character from the current stream and advances the current position of the stream in accordance with the Encoding used and the specific character being read from the stream.
Public method ReadChars Reads the specified number of characters from the current stream, returns the data in a character array, and advances the current position in accordance with the Encoding used and the specific character being read from the stream.
Public method ReadDecimal Reads a decimal value from the current stream and advances the current position of the stream by sixteen bytes.
Public method ReadDouble Reads an 8-byte floating point value from the current stream and advances the current position of the stream by eight bytes.
Public method ReadInt16 Reads a 2-byte signed integer from the current stream and advances the current position of the stream by two bytes.
Public method ReadInt32 Reads a 4-byte signed integer from the current stream and advances the current position of the stream by four bytes.
Public method ReadInt64 Reads an 8-byte signed integer from the current stream and advances the current position of the stream by eight bytes.
Public method ReadSByte Reads a signed byte from this stream and advances the current position of the stream by one byte.
Public method ReadSingle Reads a 4-byte floating point value from the current stream and advances the current position of the stream by four bytes.
Public method ReadString Reads a string from the current stream. The string is prefixed with the length, encoded as an integer seven bits at a time.
Public method ReadUInt16 Reads a 2-byte unsigned integer from the current stream using little-endian encoding and advances the position of the stream by two bytes.
Public method ReadUInt32 Reads a 4-byte unsigned integer from the current stream and advances the position of the stream by four bytes.
Public method ReadUInt64 Reads an 8-byte unsigned integer from the current stream and advances the position of the stream by eight bytes.
Public method ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
