Decoder.GetChars Method (Byte*, Int32, Char*, Int32, Boolean)

This member can be used only by trusted applications. If you try to use this member in a partial-trust application, your code will throw a MethodAccessException exception. This member is security-critical, which restricts its use.

When overridden in a derived class, decodes a sequence of bytes starting at the specified byte pointer and any bytes in the internal buffer into a set of characters that are stored starting at the specified character pointer. A parameter indicates whether to clear the internal state of the decoder after the conversion.
