Stream Methods

April 12, 2014

The Stream type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public method BeginRead Begins an asynchronous read operation.
Public method BeginWrite Begins an asynchronous write operation.
Public method Close Closes the current stream and releases any resources (such as sockets and file handles) associated with the current stream.
Public method CopyTo(Stream) Reads all the bytes from the current stream and writes them to the destination stream.
Public method CopyTo(Stream, Int32) Reads all the bytes from the current stream and writes them to a destination stream, using a specified buffer size.
Public method CopyToAsync(Stream) Asynchronously reads the bytes from the current stream and writes them to another stream.
Public method CopyToAsync(Stream, Int32) Asynchronously reads the bytes from the current stream and writes them to another stream, using a specified buffer size.
Public method CopyToAsync(Stream, Int32, CancellationToken) Asynchronously reads the bytes from the current stream and writes them to another stream, using a specified buffer size and cancellation token.
Public method Dispose() Releases all resources used by the Stream.
Protected method Dispose(Boolean) Releases the unmanaged resources used by the Stream and optionally releases the managed resources.
Public method EndRead Waits for the pending asynchronous read to complete.
Public method EndWrite Ends an asynchronous write operation.
Public method Equals(Object) Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Flush When overridden in a derived class, clears all buffers for this stream and causes any buffered data to be written to the underlying device.
Public method FlushAsync() Asynchronously clears all buffers for this stream and causes any buffered data to be written to the underlying device.
Public method FlushAsync(CancellationToken) Asynchronously clears all buffers for this stream, causes any buffered data to be written to the underlying device, and monitors cancellation requests.
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 Read When overridden in a derived class, reads a sequence of bytes from the current stream and advances the position within the stream by the number of bytes read.
Public method ReadAsync(Byte[], Int32, Int32) Asynchronously reads a sequence of bytes from the current stream and advances the position within the stream by the number of bytes read.
Public method ReadAsync(Byte[], Int32, Int32, CancellationToken) Asynchronously reads a sequence of bytes from the current stream, advances the position within the stream by the number of bytes read, and monitors cancellation requests.
Public method ReadByte Reads a byte from the stream and advances the position within the stream by one byte, or returns -1 if at the end of the stream.
Public method Seek When overridden in a derived class, sets the position within the current stream.
Public method SetLength When overridden in a derived class, sets the length of the current stream.
Public method ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Write When overridden in a derived class, writes a sequence of bytes to the current stream and advances the current position within this stream by the number of bytes written.
Public method WriteAsync(Byte[], Int32, Int32) Asynchronously writes a sequence of bytes to the current stream and advances the current position within this stream by the number of bytes written.
Public method WriteAsync(Byte[], Int32, Int32, CancellationToken) Asynchronously writes a sequence of bytes to the current stream, advances the current position within this stream by the number of bytes written, and monitors cancellation requests.
Public method WriteByte Writes a byte to the current position in the stream and advances the position within the stream by one byte.
