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

The MemoryStream type exposes the following members.

  Name Description
Public method Close Closes the current stream and releases any resources (such as sockets and file handles) associated with the current stream. Instead of calling this method, ensure that the stream is properly disposed. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method Dispose()()()() Releases all resources used by the Stream. (Inherited from Stream.)
Protected method Dispose(Boolean) Releases the unmanaged resources used by the MemoryStream class and optionally releases the managed resources. (Overrides Stream..::..Dispose(Boolean).)
Public method Equals(Object) Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method Finalize Cleans up resources. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method Flush Overrides the Stream..::..Flush method so that no action is performed. (Overrides Stream..::..Flush()()()().)
Public method GetHashCode Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Read Reads a block of bytes from the current stream and writes the data to a buffer. (Overrides Stream..::..Read(array<Byte>[]()[][], Int32, Int32).)
Public method ReadByte Reads a byte from the current stream. (Overrides Stream..::..ReadByte()()()().)
Public method Seek Sets the position within the current stream to the specified value. (Overrides Stream..::..Seek(Int64, SeekOrigin).)
Public method SetLength Sets the length of the current stream to the specified value. (Overrides Stream..::..SetLength(Int64).)
Public method ToArray Writes the stream contents to a byte array, regardless of the Position property.
Public method ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Write Writes a block of bytes to the current stream using data read from a buffer. (Overrides Stream..::..Write(array<Byte>[]()[][], Int32, Int32).)
Public method WriteByte Writes a byte to the current stream at the current position. (Overrides Stream..::..WriteByte(Byte).)
Public method WriteTo Writes the entire contents of this memory stream to another stream.
