StreamReader Constructor (Stream)

Initializes a new instance of the StreamReader class for the specified stream.

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

public:
StreamReader(
	Stream^ stream
)

Parameters

stream
Type: System.IO::Stream

The stream to be read.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

stream does not support reading.

ArgumentNullException

stream is nullptr.

This constructor initializes the encoding to UTF8Encoding, the BaseStream property using the stream parameter, and the internal buffer size to 1024 bytes.

The StreamReader object calls Dispose() on the provided Stream object when StreamReader::Dispose is called.

Caution noteCaution

When you compile a set of characters with a particular cultural setting and retrieve those same characters with a different cultural setting, the characters might not be interpretable, and could cause an exception to be thrown.

For a list of common I/O tasks, see Common I/O Tasks.

The following code example demonstrates this StreamReader constructor.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::IO;
int main()
{
   String^ path = "c:\\temp\\MyTest.txt";
   try
   {
      if ( File::Exists( path ) )
      {
         File::Delete( path );
      }
      StreamWriter^ sw = gcnew StreamWriter( path );
      try
      {
         sw->WriteLine( "This" );
         sw->WriteLine( "is some text" );
         sw->WriteLine( "to test" );
         sw->WriteLine( "Reading" );
      }
      finally
      {
         delete sw;
      }

      FileStream^ fs = gcnew FileStream( path,FileMode::Open );
      try
      {
         StreamReader^ sr = gcnew StreamReader( fs );
         try
         {
            while ( sr->Peek() >= 0 )
            {
               Console::WriteLine( sr->ReadLine() );
            }
         }
         finally
         {
            delete sr;
         }
      }
      finally
      {
         delete fs;
      }
   }
   catch ( Exception^ e ) 
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "The process failed: {0}", e );
   }
}
