Initializes a new instance of the CryptoStream class with a target data stream, the transformation to use, and the mode of the stream.

Namespace:   System.Security.Cryptography
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

new : 
        stream:Stream *
        transform:ICryptoTransform *
        mode:CryptoStreamMode -> CryptoStream

Parameters

stream
Type: System.IO.Stream

The stream on which to perform the cryptographic transformation.

transform
Type: System.Security.Cryptography.ICryptoTransform

The cryptographic transformation that is to be performed on the stream.

mode
Type: System.Security.Cryptography.CryptoStreamMode

One of the CryptoStreamMode values.

Exception Condition
ArgumentException

stream is not readable.

ArgumentException

stream is not writable.

ArgumentException

stream is invalid.

Any object that derives from Stream can be passed into the stream parameter. Any object that implements ICryptoTransform (such as HashAlgorithm) can be passed into the transform parameter.
