Create Method (String, Int32)

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

Creates or overwrites the specified file.

Namespace:  System.IO
Assembly:  System.IO (in System.IO.dll)

static member Create : 
        path:string * 
        bufferSize:int -> FileStream 

Parameters

path
Type: System..::..String
The name of the file.
bufferSize
Type: System..::..Int32
The number of bytes buffered for reads and writes to the file.

Return Value

Type: System.IO..::..FileStream
A FileStream with the specified buffer size that provides read/write access to the file specified in path.

The FileStream object created by this method has a default FileShare value of None; no other process or code can access the created file until the original file handle is closed.

The path parameter is permitted to specify relative or absolute path information. Relative path information is interpreted as relative to the current working directory. To obtain the current working directory, see GetCurrentDirectory.

This method is equivalent to the FileStream(String, FileMode, FileAccess, FileShare, Int32) constructor overload. If the specified file does not exist, it is created; if it does exist and it is not read-only, the contents are overwritten.

By default, full read/write access to new files is granted to all users. The file is opened with read/write access and must be closed before it can be opened by another application.
