FileStream Methods

FileStream Methods

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

The FileStream type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public method BeginRead Begins an asynchronous read. (Overrides Stream.BeginRead(Byte[], Int32, Int32, AsyncCallback, Object).)
Public method BeginWrite Begins an asynchronous write. (Overrides Stream.BeginWrite(Byte[], Int32, Int32, AsyncCallback, Object).)
Public method Close Closes the current stream and releases any resources (such as sockets and file handles) associated with the current stream. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method CopyTo(Stream) Reads all the bytes from the current stream and writes them to the destination stream. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method CopyTo(Stream, Int32) Reads all the bytes from the current stream and writes them to a destination stream, using a specified buffer size. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method CopyToAsync(Stream) Asynchronously reads the bytes from the current stream and writes them to another stream. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method CopyToAsync(Stream, Int32) Asynchronously reads the bytes from the current stream and writes them to another stream, using a specified buffer size. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method CopyToAsync(Stream, Int32, CancellationToken) Asynchronously reads the bytes from the current stream and writes them to another stream, using a specified buffer size and cancellation token. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method Dispose() Releases all resources used by the Stream. (Inherited from Stream.)
Protected method Dispose(Boolean) Releases the unmanaged resources used by the FileStream and optionally releases the managed resources. (Overrides Stream.Dispose(Boolean).)
Public method EndRead Waits for the pending asynchronous read to complete. (Overrides Stream.EndRead(IAsyncResult).)
Public method EndWrite Ends an asynchronous write, blocking until the I/O operation has completed. (Overrides Stream.EndWrite(IAsyncResult).)
Public method Equals(Object) Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method Finalize Ensures that resources are freed and other cleanup operations are performed when the garbage collector reclaims the FileStream. (Overrides Object.Finalize().)
Public method Flush() Clears all buffers for this stream and causes any buffered data to be written to the file system. (Overrides Stream.Flush().)
Public method Flush(Boolean) Clears buffers for this stream and causes any buffered data to be written to the file, and also clears all intermediate file buffers.
Public method FlushAsync() Asynchronously clears all buffers for this stream and causes any buffered data to be written to the underlying device. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method FlushAsync(CancellationToken) Asynchronously clears all buffers for this stream, causes any buffered data to be written to the underlying device, and monitors cancellation requests. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method GetHashCode Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Read Reads a block of bytes from the stream and writes the data in a given buffer. (Overrides Stream.Read(Byte[], Int32, Int32).)
Public method ReadAsync(Byte[], Int32, Int32) Asynchronously reads a sequence of bytes from the current stream and advances the position within the stream by the number of bytes read. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method ReadAsync(Byte[], Int32, Int32, CancellationToken) Asynchronously reads a sequence of bytes from the current stream, advances the position within the stream by the number of bytes read, and monitors cancellation requests. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method ReadByte Reads a byte from the file and advances the read position one byte. (Overrides Stream.ReadByte().)
Public method Seek Sets the current position of this stream to the given value. (Overrides Stream.Seek(Int64, SeekOrigin).)
Public method SetLength Sets the length of this stream to the given value. (Overrides Stream.SetLength(Int64).)
Public method ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Write Writes a block of bytes to this stream using data from a buffer. (Overrides Stream.Write(Byte[], Int32, Int32).)
Public method WriteAsync(Byte[], Int32, Int32) Asynchronously writes a sequence of bytes to the current stream and advances the current position within this stream by the number of bytes written. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method WriteAsync(Byte[], Int32, Int32, CancellationToken) Asynchronously writes a sequence of bytes to the current stream, advances the current position within this stream by the number of bytes written, and monitors cancellation requests. (Inherited from Stream.)
Public method WriteByte Writes a byte to the current position in the file stream. (Overrides Stream.WriteByte(Byte).)
