HttpContent.CreateContentReadStreamAsync Method


Serialize the HTTP content to a memory stream as an asynchronous operation.

 virtual System::Threading::Tasks::Task<System::IO::Stream ^> ^ CreateContentReadStreamAsync();
protected virtual System.Threading.Tasks.Task<System.IO.Stream> CreateContentReadStreamAsync ();
abstract member CreateContentReadStreamAsync : unit -> System.Threading.Tasks.Task<System.IO.Stream>
override this.CreateContentReadStreamAsync : unit -> System.Threading.Tasks.Task<System.IO.Stream>
Protected Overridable Function CreateContentReadStreamAsync () As Task(Of Stream)


The task object representing the asynchronous operation.


This operation will not block. The returned Task<TResult> object will complete after all of the content has been written to the memory stream.

Once the operation completes, the Result property on the returned task object contains the memory stream that represents the HTTP content. The returned stream can then be used to read the content using various stream APIs.

The CreateContentReadStreamAsync method buffers the content to a memory stream. Derived classes can override this behavior if there is a better way to retrieve the content as stream. For example, a byte array or a string could use a more efficient method way such as wrapping a read-only MemoryStream around the bytes or string.)
