This method overrides WriteByte.

Except for a MemoryStream constructed with a byte[] parameter, write operations at the end of a MemoryStream expand the MemoryStream.

This code example is part of a larger example provided for the MemoryStream class.

// Write the second string to the stream, byte by byte.
count = 0;
while(count < secondString.Length)
{
    memStream.WriteByte(secondString[count++]);
}

// Write the second string to the stream, byte by byte.
count = 0;
while((count < secondString.length)) {
    memStream.WriteByte(secondString[count++]);
}
