StreamWriter.Encoding Property

.NET Micro Framework 3.0
Gets the Encoding in which the output is written.

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

public override Encoding Encoding { get; }

Property Value

The Encoding specified in the constructor for the current instance, or UTF8Encoding if an encoding was not specified.

This property is necessary for some XML scenarios where a header must be written containing the encoding used by the StreamWriter. This allows the XML code to consume an arbitrary StreamWriter and generate the correct XML header.

Available in the .NET Micro Framework versions 3.0, 4.0, 4.1, and 4.2.
