BufferedStream.Position Property

Definition

Gets the position within the current stream.

public:
 virtual property long Position { long get(); void set(long value); };
public override long Position { get; set; }
member this.Position : int64 with get, set
Public Overrides Property Position As Long

Property Value

Int64

The position within the current stream.

Exceptions

The value passed to Seek(Int64, SeekOrigin) is negative.

An I/O error occurs, such as the stream being closed.

The stream does not support seeking.

Methods were called after the stream was closed.

Remarks

The get accessor invokes Seek to obtain the current position within the underlying stream and then adjusts this value according to the current position within the buffer.

The set accessor copies any data previously written to the buffer to the underlying stream, and then invokes Seek.

Seeking to any location beyond the length of the stream is supported.
