Decoder.GetCharCount Method (Byte*, Int32, Boolean)
When overridden in a derived class, calculates the number of characters produced by decoding a sequence of bytes starting at the specified byte pointer. A parameter indicates whether to clear the internal state of the decoder after the calculation.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)] [ComVisibleAttribute(false)] public virtual int GetCharCount( byte* bytes, int count, bool flush )
- Type: System.Byte*
A pointer to the first byte to decode.
- Type: System.Int32
The number of bytes to decode.
- Type: System.Boolean
true to simulate clearing the internal state of the encoder after the calculation; otherwise, false.
Return ValueType: System.Int32
The number of characters produced by decoding the specified sequence of bytes and any bytes in the internal buffer.
This method does not affect the state of the decoder.
If GetChars is called with flush set to false, the decoder stores trailing bytes at the end of the data block in an internal buffer and uses them in the next decoding operation. The application should call GetCharCount on a block of data immediately before calling GetChars on the same block, so that any trailing bytes from the previous block are included in the calculation.
