The exception that is thrown when reading is attempted past the end of a stream.


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

Public Class EndOfStreamException _
	Inherits IOException

The EndOfStreamException type exposes the following members.

Public methodEndOfStreamExceptionInitializes a new instance of the EndOfStreamException class with its message string set to a system-supplied message.
Public methodEndOfStreamException(String)Initializes a new instance of the EndOfStreamException class with its message string set to message and its HRESULT set to COR_E_ENDOFSTREAM.
Public methodEndOfStreamException(String, Exception)Initializes a new instance of the EndOfStreamException class with a specified error message and a reference to the inner exception that is the cause of this exception.

Public propertyDataGets a collection of key/value pairs that provide additional user-defined information about the exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertyHelpLinkGets or sets a link to the help file associated with this exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertyHResultGets or sets HRESULT, a coded numerical value that is assigned to a specific exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertyInnerExceptionGets the Exception instance that caused the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertyMessageGets a message that describes the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertySourceGets or sets the name of the application or the object that causes the error. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public propertyStackTraceGets a string representation of the frames on the call stack at the time the current exception was thrown. (Inherited from Exception.)

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetBaseExceptionWhen overridden in a derived class, returns the Exception that is the root cause of one or more subsequent exceptions. (Inherited from Exception.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the runtime type of the current instance. (Inherited from Exception.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringCreates and returns a string representation of the current exception. (Inherited from Exception.)

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.

Public Class Example

   Public Shared Sub Demo(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock)

      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())

         ' Write data to the stream.
         outputBlock.Text &= "Writing data to the stream." & vbCrLf

         For i = 0 To upperBound
         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.
            outputBlock.Text &= "Verifying the written data." & vbCrLf
            For i = 0 To upperBound
               If binReader.ReadDouble() <> dataArray(i) Then
                  outputBlock.Text &= "Error writing data." & vbCrLf
                  Exit For
               End If
            Next i
            outputBlock.Text &= "The data was written and verified." & vbCrLf
         Catch ex As EndOfStreamException
            outputBlock.Text &= String.Format("Error writing data: {0}.", _
                ex.GetType().Name) & vbCrLf
         End Try
      End Try
