Reads a specified maximum number of characters from the current stream asynchronously and writes the data to a buffer, beginning at the specified index.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
[ComVisibleAttribute(false)] [HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, ExternalThreading = true)] public override Task<int> ReadBlockAsync( char buffer, int index, int count )
- Type: System.Char
When this method returns, contains the specified character array with the values between index and (index + count - 1) replaced by the characters read from the current source.
- Type: System.Int32
The position in buffer at which to begin writing.
- Type: System.Int32
The maximum number of characters to read. If the end of the stream is reached before the specified number of characters is written into the buffer, the method returns.
Return ValueType: System.Threading.Tasks.Task<Int32>
A task that represents the asynchronous read operation. The value of the TResult parameter contains the total number of bytes read into the buffer. The result value can be less than the number of bytes requested if the number of bytes currently available is less than the requested number, or it can be 0 (zero) if the end of the stream has been reached.
buffer is null.
index or count is negative.
The sum of index and count is larger than the buffer length.
The stream has been disposed.
The reader is currently in use by a previous read operation.
The task does not complete until either the number of characters specified by the count parameter are read, or the end of the stream has been reached.
The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: ExternalThreading. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser).
