UnicodeEncoding Constructor ()

 

Initializes a new instance of the UnicodeEncoding class.

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

public UnicodeEncoding()

This constructor creates an instance that uses the little endian byte order, provides a Unicode byte order mark, and does not throw an exception when an invalid encoding is detected.

System_CAPS_noteNote

For security reasons, you should enable error detection by calling the UnicodeEncoding(Boolean, Boolean, Boolean) constructor and setting its throwOnInvalidBytes argument to true.

The following example demonstrates how to create a new UnicodeEncoding instance and display the name of the encoding.

using System;
using System.Text;

class UnicodeEncodingExample {
    public static void Main() {
        UnicodeEncoding unicode = new UnicodeEncoding();
        String encodingName = unicode.EncodingName;
        Console.WriteLine("Encoding name: " + encodingName);
    }
}
