StreamWriter Constructor (Stream, Encoding)
Initializes a new instance of the StreamWriter class for the specified stream by using the specified encoding and the default buffer size.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
This constructor initializes the Encoding property using the encoding parameter, and the BaseStream property using the stream parameter. The position of the stream is not reset. For additional information, see Encoding.
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 example demonstrates this constructor.
Imports System.IO Imports System.Text Module Module1 Sub Main() Dim fileName As String = "test.txt" Dim textToAdd As String = "Example text in file" Dim fs As FileStream = Nothing Try fs = New FileStream(fileName, FileMode.CreateNew) Using writer As StreamWriter = New StreamWriter(fs, Encoding.Default) writer.Write(textToAdd) End Using Finally If Not fs Is Nothing Then fs.Dispose() End If End Try End Sub End Module
