TextWriter.Encoding TextWriter.Encoding TextWriter.Encoding TextWriter.Encoding Property

Definition

When overridden in a derived class, returns the character encoding in which the output is written.

public:
 abstract property System::Text::Encoding ^ Encoding { System::Text::Encoding ^ get(); };
public abstract System.Text.Encoding Encoding { get; }
member this.Encoding : System.Text.Encoding
Public MustOverride ReadOnly Property Encoding As Encoding

Property Value

The character encoding in which the output is written.

Remarks

This property is necessary for some XML scenarios where a header must be written containing the encoding used by the TextWriter. This enables the XML code to consume an arbitrary TextWriter and generate the correct XML header.
