Encoder Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the Encoder class.

Namespace:  System.Text
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

protected Encoder()

To obtain an instance of an implementation of this class, the application should use the GetEncoder method of an Encoding implementation.

The following example demonstrates two techniques for initializing a new Encoder instance.

using System;
using System.Text;

class EncoderExample {
    public static void Main() {
        // An Encoder is obtained from an Encoding.
        UnicodeEncoding uni = new UnicodeEncoding();
        Encoder enc1 = uni.GetEncoder();

        // A more direct technique.
        Encoder enc2 = Encoding.Unicode.GetEncoder();

        // enc1 and enc2 seem to be the same.

        // Note that their hash codes differ.

/* This code example produces the following output.
