Begins an asynchronous read.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

- Type: System.Byte()
The buffer to read data into.
- Type: System.Int32
The byte offset in buffer at which to begin reading.
- Type: System.Int32
The maximum number of bytes to read.
- Type: System.AsyncCallback
The method to call when the asynchronous read operation is completed. This parameter is optional.
- Type: System.Object
The status of the asynchronous read.
Return ValueType: System.IAsyncResult
An IAsyncResult object that represents the asynchronous read, which is possibly still pending. This IAsyncResult must be passed to this stream's EndRead method to determine how many bytes were read. This can be done either by the same code that called or in a callback passed to .
The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: ExternalThreading. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.
The current position in the stream is updated when you issue the asynchronous read or write, not when the I/O operation completes.
