WindowsRuntimeBufferExtensions::GetWindowsRuntimeBuffer Method (MemoryStream)

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

Returns a Windows.Storage.Streams.IBuffer interface that represents the same memory as the specified memory stream.

This API is not CLS-compliant.

Assembly:  System.Runtime.WindowsRuntime (in System.Runtime.WindowsRuntime.dll)

static IBuffer^ GetWindowsRuntimeBuffer(
	MemoryStream^ underlyingStream


Type: System.IO::MemoryStream

The stream that provides the backing memory for the IBuffer.

Return Value

Type: IBuffer
A Windows.Storage.Streams.IBuffer interface that is backed by the same memory that backs the specified memory stream.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type MemoryStream. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see Extension Methods (Visual Basic) or Extension Methods (C# Programming Guide).

If underlyingStream is resized, it may represent a different region of memory; however, the IBuffer continues to represent the memory of the original stream before it was resized.
