TextFieldParser Constructor (Stream^, Encoding^, Boolean, Boolean)
Initializes a new instance of the TextFieldParser class.
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualBasic (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll)
public: TextFieldParser( Stream^ stream, Encoding^ defaultEncoding, bool detectEncoding, bool leaveOpen )
- Type: System.Text::Encoding^
Boolean. Indicates whether to look for byte order marks at the beginning of the file. Default is True.
Boolean. Indicates whether to leave stream open when the TextFieldParser object is closed. Default is False.
Creates a new TextFieldParser object to parse the file or stream that is represented by the stream 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.
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.
