WindowsRuntimeBufferExtensions.GetWindowsRuntimeBuffer Method (MemoryStream, Int32, Int32)

May 11, 2014

For apps that target Windows Phone OS 7.0 and 7.1, do not use any members of this type in your app. If you do, your code will throw a MethodAccessException. This type is security-critical, which restricts it to internal use by the .NET Framework for Windows Phone class library.

Returns a Windows.Storage.Streams.IBuffer interface that represents a region within the memory that the specified memory stream represents.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

Namespace:  System.Runtime.InteropServices.WindowsRuntime
Assembly:  System.Runtime.WindowsRuntime (in System.Runtime.WindowsRuntime.dll)

public static IBuffer GetWindowsRuntimeBuffer(
	this MemoryStream underlyingStream,
	int positionInStream,
	int length


Type: System.IO.MemoryStream
The stream that shares memory with the IBuffer.
Type: System.Int32
The position of the shared memory region in underlyingStream.
Type: System.Int32
The maximum size of the shared memory region. If the number of bytes in underlyingStream, starting at positionInStream, is less than length, the IBuffer that is returned represents only the available bytes.

Return Value

Type: Windows.Storage.Streams.IBuffer
A Windows.Storage.Streams.IBuffer interface that is backed by a region within the memory that backs the specified memory stream.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type MemoryStream. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter.
