Decoder Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the Decoder class.

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

protected Decoder ()
protected Decoder ()
protected function Decoder ()

To obtain an instance of an implementation of this class, use the GetDecoder method of an Encoding implementation.

The following code example demonstrates two techniques for initializing a new Decoder instance.

using System;
using System.Text;

class EncoderExample {
    public static void Main() {
        // A Decoder is obtained from an Encoding.
        UnicodeEncoding uni = new UnicodeEncoding();
        Decoder dec1 = uni.GetDecoder();

        // A more direct technique.
        Decoder dec2 = Encoding.Unicode.GetDecoder();

        // dec1 and dec2 seem to be the same.

        // Note that their hash codes differ.
