MemoryStream Constructor

MemoryStream Constructor ()


Initializes a new instance of the MemoryStream class with an expandable capacity initialized to zero.

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

public MemoryStream()

The CanRead, CanSeek, and CanWrite properties are all set to true.

The capacity of the current stream automatically increases when you use the SetLength method to set the length to a value larger than the capacity of the current stream.

This constructor exposes the underlying stream, which GetBuffer returns.
