Encoder.Reset Method

When overridden in a derived class, sets the encoder back to its initial state.

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

[ComVisibleAttribute(false)] 
public virtual void Reset ()
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(false) */ 
public void Reset ()
ComVisibleAttribute(false) 
public function Reset ()
Not applicable.

This method clears the internal state of the Encoder object. The method clears any state information preserved from a previous call to GetBytes or Convert, including trailing characters at the end of the previous data block, such as an unmatched high surrogate.

Your application should call the Reset method if it wants to reuse the same encoder even after an exception is thrown by GetBytes or GetByteCount.
