GZipStream.EndRead(IAsyncResult) GZipStream.EndRead(IAsyncResult) GZipStream.EndRead(IAsyncResult) GZipStream.EndRead(IAsyncResult) Method

Definition

Waits for the pending asynchronous read to complete. (Consider using the ReadAsync(Byte[], Int32, Int32) method instead.)

public:
 override int EndRead(IAsyncResult ^ async_result);
public override int EndRead (IAsyncResult async_result);
override this.EndRead : IAsyncResult -> int
Public Overrides Function EndRead (async_result As IAsyncResult) As Integer

Parameters

asyncResult
IAsyncResult IAsyncResult IAsyncResult IAsyncResult

The reference to the pending asynchronous request to finish.

Returns

The number of bytes read from the stream, between 0 (zero) and the number of bytes you requested. GZipStream returns 0 only at the end of the stream; otherwise, it blocks until at least one byte is available.

Exceptions

The end operation cannot be performed because the stream is closed.

Examples

The following code example shows how to use the GZipStream class to compress and decompress a file.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.IO.Compression;

public class Program
{
    private static string directoryPath = @".\temp";
    public static void Main()
    {
        DirectoryInfo directorySelected = new DirectoryInfo(directoryPath);
        Compress(directorySelected);

        foreach (FileInfo fileToDecompress in directorySelected.GetFiles("*.gz"))
        {
            Decompress(fileToDecompress);
        }
    }

    public static void Compress(DirectoryInfo directorySelected)
    {
        foreach (FileInfo fileToCompress in directorySelected.GetFiles())
        {
            using (FileStream originalFileStream = fileToCompress.OpenRead())
            {
                if ((File.GetAttributes(fileToCompress.FullName) & 
                   FileAttributes.Hidden) != FileAttributes.Hidden & fileToCompress.Extension != ".gz")
                {
                    using (FileStream compressedFileStream = File.Create(fileToCompress.FullName + ".gz"))
                    {
                        using (GZipStream compressionStream = new GZipStream(compressedFileStream, 
                           CompressionMode.Compress))
                        {
                            originalFileStream.CopyTo(compressionStream);

                        }
                    }
                    FileInfo info = new FileInfo(directoryPath + Path.DirectorySeparatorChar + fileToCompress.Name + ".gz");
                    Console.WriteLine($"Compressed {fileToCompress.Name} from {fileToCompress.Length.ToString()} to {info.Length.ToString()} bytes.");
                }

            }
        }
    }

    public static void Decompress(FileInfo fileToDecompress)
    {
        using (FileStream originalFileStream = fileToDecompress.OpenRead())
        {
            string currentFileName = fileToDecompress.FullName;
            string newFileName = currentFileName.Remove(currentFileName.Length - fileToDecompress.Extension.Length);

            using (FileStream decompressedFileStream = File.Create(newFileName))
            {
                using (GZipStream decompressionStream = new GZipStream(originalFileStream, CompressionMode.Decompress))
                {
                    decompressionStream.CopyTo(decompressedFileStream);
                    Console.WriteLine($"Decompressed: {fileToDecompress.Name}");
                }

Remarks

Starting with the .NET Framework 4.5, you can perform asynchronous read operations by using the Stream.ReadAsync method. The EndRead method is still available in .NET Framework 4.5 to support legacy code; however, you can implement asynchronous I/O operations more easily by using the new async methods. For more information, see Asynchronous File I/O.

Call this method to determine how many bytes were read from the stream. This method can be called once to return the amount of bytes read between calls to BeginRead and EndRead.

This method blocks until the I/O operation has completed.
