DeflateStream.Flush Method

Flushes the contents of the internal buffer of the current stream object to the underlying stream.

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

Public Overrides Sub Flush


The stream is closed.

When writing using the Write method, the data may not be written to the stream since writing the data back in chunks can provide better performance. Calling the Flush method forces the data to be written.
