Type Property (ADO Stream)

Indicates the type of data contained in the Stream (binary or text).

Sets or returns a StreamTypeEnum value that specifies the type of data contained in the Stream object. The default value is adTypeText. However, if binary data is initially written to a new, empty Stream, the Type will be changed to adTypeBinary.

The Type property is read/write only when the current position is at the beginning of the Stream (Position is 0), and read-only at any other position.

The Type property determines which methods should be used for reading and writing the Stream. For text Streams, use ReadText and WriteText. For binary Streams, use Read and Write.
