EndOfStreamException Class

The exception that is thrown when reading is attempted past the end of a stream.

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

'Declaration
<SerializableAttribute> _
<ComVisibleAttribute(True)> _
Public Class EndOfStreamException
	Inherits IOException
'Usage
Dim instance As EndOfStreamException

/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public class EndOfStreamException extends IOException
SerializableAttribute 
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
public class EndOfStreamException extends IOException

EndOfStreamException uses the HRESULT COR_E_ENDOFSTREAM which has the value 0x80070026.

The following code example shows how to read and write Double data to memory by using the BinaryReader and BinaryWriter classes on top of the MemoryStream class.

Imports System
Imports System.IO

Public Class BinaryRW

    Shared Sub Main()
    
        Dim i As Integer
        Const upperBound As Integer = 1000

        ' Create random data to write to the stream.
        Dim dataArray(upperBound) As Double
        Dim randomGenerator As New Random()
        For i = 0 To upperBound
            dataArray(i) = 100.1 * randomGenerator.NextDouble()
        Next i

        Dim binWriter As New BinaryWriter(New MemoryStream())
        Try

            ' Write data to the stream.
            Console.WriteLine("Writing data to the stream.")
            
            For i = 0 To upperBound
                binWriter.Write(dataArray(i))
            Next i

            ' Create a reader using the stream from the writer.
            Dim binReader As New BinaryReader(binWriter.BaseStream)

            ' Return to the beginning of the stream.
            binReader.BaseStream.Position = 0

            ' Read and verify the data.
            Try
                Console.WriteLine("Verifying the written data.")
                For i = 0 To upperBound

                        Console.WriteLine("Error writing data.")
                        Exit For
                    End If
                Next i
