MemoryStream.ReadByte Method

Reads a byte from the current stream.

Namespace:  System.IO
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public override int ReadByte()

Return Value

Type: System.Int32
The byte cast to a Int32, or -1 if the end of the stream has been reached.
ExceptionCondition
ObjectDisposedException

The current stream instance is closed.

This method overrides ReadByte.

If the read operation is successful, the current position within the stream is advanced by one byte. If an exception occurs, the current position within the stream is unchanged.

This code example is part of a larger example provided for the MemoryStream class.

// Read the remaining bytes, byte by byte. 
while(count < memStream.Length)
{
    byteArray[count++] =
        Convert.ToByte(memStream.ReadByte());
}
