DecoderReplacementFallbackBuffer Class


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Represents a substitute output string that is emitted when the original input byte sequence cannot be decoded. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:   System.Text
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)


public sealed class DecoderReplacementFallbackBuffer : DecoderFallbackBuffer


Initializes a new instance of the DecoderReplacementFallbackBuffer class using the value of a DecoderReplacementFallback object.


Gets the number of characters in the replacement fallback buffer that remain to be processed.(Overrides DecoderFallbackBuffer.Remaining.)


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodFallback(Byte[], Int32)

Prepares the replacement fallback buffer to use the current replacement string.(Overrides DecoderFallbackBuffer.Fallback(Byte[], Int32).)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Retrieves the next character in the replacement fallback buffer.(Overrides DecoderFallbackBuffer.GetNextChar().)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Causes the next call to GetNextChar to access the character position in the replacement fallback buffer prior to the current character position.(Overrides DecoderFallbackBuffer.MovePrevious().)


Initializes all internal state information and data in the DecoderReplacementFallbackBuffer object.(Overrides DecoderFallbackBuffer.Reset().)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

It might not be possible to convert an encoded byte sequence to an equivalent character if no suitable decoding exists. A common reason for a decoding to fail is that the conversion operation uses a code page that cannot represent the character to decode.

If the input byte sequence cannot be converted to an output character, a System.Text.DecoderReplacementFallback object provides a replacement string that is substituted for the output character. The replacement string initializes the value of the DecoderReplacementFallback object, and the value of the DecoderReplacementFallback object initializes the value of a DecoderReplacementFallbackBuffer object. The value of a DecoderReplacementFallbackBuffer object is called the replacement fallback buffer. The conversion operation uses the replacement fallback buffer to emit a replacement string instead of a decoded character, then continues to process the remainder of the input.
