FromBase64Transform Constructor (FromBase64TransformMode)

Initializes a new instance of the FromBase64Transform class with the specified transformation mode.

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

public FromBase64Transform(
	FromBase64TransformMode whitespaces

The following example decodes a base 64-encoded file to an output text file.
