EndOfStreamException uses the HRESULT COR_E_ENDOFSTREAM which has the value 0x80070026.

The following code example shows how to read and write Double data to memory by using the BinaryReader and BinaryWriter classes on top of the MemoryStream class.

Imports System
Imports System.IO

Public Class BinaryRW

    Shared Sub Main()

        Dim i As Integer 
        Const upperBound As Integer = 1000

        ' Create random data to write to the stream. 
        Dim dataArray(upperBound) As Double 
        Dim randomGenerator As New Random()
        For i = 0 To upperBound
            dataArray(i) = 100.1 * randomGenerator.NextDouble()
        Next i

        Dim binWriter As New BinaryWriter(New MemoryStream())
        Try 

            ' Write data to the stream.
            Console.WriteLine("Writing data to the stream.")

            For i = 0 To upperBound
                binWriter.Write(dataArray(i))
            Next i

            ' Create a reader using the stream from the writer. 
            Dim binReader As New BinaryReader(binWriter.BaseStream)

            ' Return to the beginning of the stream.
            binReader.BaseStream.Position = 0

            ' Read and verify the data. 
            Try
                Console.WriteLine("Verifying the written data.")
                For i = 0 To upperBound
                    If binReader.ReadDouble() <> dataArray(i) Then
                        Console.WriteLine("Error writing data.")
                        Exit For 
                    End If 
                Next i
                Console.WriteLine("The data was written and verified.")
            Catch ex As EndOfStreamException
                Console.WriteLine("Error writing data: {0}.", _
                    ex.GetType().Name)
            End Try 
        Finally
            binWriter.Close()
        End Try 

    End Sub 
End Class
