FileStream Methods

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

The FileStream type exposes the following members.

  Name Description
Public method Close Closes the current stream and releases any resources (such as sockets and file handles) associated with the current stream. Instead of calling this method, ensure that the stream is properly disposed. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method Dispose()()()() Releases all resources used by the Stream. (Inherited from Stream.)
Protected method Dispose(Boolean) Releases the unmanaged resources used by the FileStream and optionally releases the managed resources. (Overrides Stream..::..Dispose(Boolean).)
Public method Equals(Object) Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method Finalize Ensures that resources are freed and other cleanup operations are performed when the garbage collector reclaims the FileStream. (Overrides Stream..::..Finalize()()()().)
Public method Flush Clears buffers for this stream and causes any buffered data to be written to the file. (Overrides Stream..::..Flush()()()().)
Public method GetHashCode Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Read Reads a block of bytes from the stream and writes the data in a given buffer. (Overrides Stream..::..Read(array<Byte>[]()[][], Int32, Int32).)
Public method ReadByte Reads a byte from the stream and advances the position within the stream by one byte, or returns -1 if at the end of the stream. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method Seek Sets the current position of this stream to the given value. (Overrides Stream..::..Seek(Int64, SeekOrigin).)
Public method SetLength Sets the length of this stream to the given value. (Overrides Stream..::..SetLength(Int64).)
Public method ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Write Writes a block of bytes to the file stream. (Overrides Stream..::..Write(array<Byte>[]()[][], Int32, Int32).)
Public method WriteByte Writes a byte to the current position in the stream and advances the position within the stream by one byte. (Inherited from Stream.)
