TextFieldParser Constructor (String, Encoding, Boolean)

 

Initializes a new instance of the TextFieldParser class.

Namespace:   Microsoft.VisualBasic.FileIO
Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll)

new : 
        path:string *
        defaultEncoding:Encoding *
        detectEncoding:bool -> TextFieldParser

Parameters

path
Type: System.String

String. The complete path of the file to be parsed.

defaultEncoding
Type: System.Text.Encoding

Encoding. The character encoding to use if encoding is not determined from file. Default is UTF8.

detectEncoding
Type: System.Boolean

Boolean. Indicates whether to look for byte order marks at the beginning of the file. Default is True.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

path is an empty string or defaultEncoding is Nothing.

Creates a new TextFieldParser object to parse the file specified by the path parameter.

If the detectEncoding parameter is True, this constructor attempts to detect the encoding by looking at the first three bytes of the file or stream. It automatically recognizes UTF-8, little-endian Unicode, and big-endian Unicode text if the file starts with the appropriate byte-order marks. Otherwise, the encoding specified by defaultEncoding is used.

System_CAPS_cautionCaution

When you compile a set of characters with a particular cultural setting and retrieve those same characters with a different cultural setting, the characters might not be interpretable and could cause an exception to be thrown.
