UnmanagedMemoryStream.Position Property

Definition

Gets or sets the current position in a 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 current position in the stream.

Exceptions

The stream is closed.

The position is set to a value that is less than zero, or the position is larger than MaxValue or results in overflow when added to the current pointer.

Remarks

When a stream is initialized, this property is set to zero.

Although you can set the position of the stream beyond the stream's capacity, you will not be able to access that area using the Read and Write methods. Read will return 0 and Write will throw a NotSupportedException. This support is primarily for design and code compatibility with basic stream operations.
