UnicodeEncoding Constructor

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Initializes a new instance of the UnicodeEncoding class.

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

public UnicodeEncoding()

This constructor creates an instance that uses the little-endian byte order, provides a Unicode byte order mark, and does not throw an exception when an invalid encoding is detected.

NoteNote:

For security reasons, your applications are recommended to enable error detection by using the constructor that accepts a throwOnInvalidBytes parameter and setting that parameter to true.

The following example creates a new UnicodeEncoding instance and displays the name of the encoding.


using System;
using System.Text;

class Example
{
   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {
      UnicodeEncoding unicode = new UnicodeEncoding();
      String encodingName = unicode.WebName;
      outputBlock.Text += "Encoding name: " + encodingName + "\n";
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       Encoding name: utf-16
