Methods

Name Description
Close Closes the StringReader. (Overrides TextReader..::.Close()()().)
Dispose()()() Releases all resources used by the TextReader object. (Inherited from TextReader.)
Dispose(Boolean) Releases the unmanaged resources used by the StringReader and optionally releases the managed resources. (Overrides TextReader..::.Dispose(Boolean).)
Equals(Object) Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
GetHashCode Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Peek Returns the next available character but does not consume it. (Overrides TextReader..::.Peek()()().)
Read()()() Reads the next character from the input string and advances the character position by one character. (Overrides TextReader..::.Read()()().)
Read(array<Char>[]()[], Int32, Int32) Reads a block of characters from the input string and advances the character position by count. (Overrides TextReader..::.Read(array<Char>[]()[], Int32, Int32).)
ReadAsync Reads a specified maximum number of characters from the current string asynchronously and writes the data to a buffer, beginning at the specified index. (Overrides TextReader..::.ReadAsync(array<Char>[]()[], Int32, Int32).)
ReadBlock Reads a maximum of count characters from the current stream, and writes the data to buffer, beginning at index. (Inherited from TextReader.)
ReadBlockAsync Reads a specified maximum number of characters from the current string asynchronously and writes the data to a buffer, beginning at the specified index. (Overrides TextReader..::.ReadBlockAsync(array<Char>[]()[], Int32, Int32).)
ReadLine Reads a line from the underlying string. (Overrides TextReader..::.ReadLine()()().)
ReadLineAsync Reads a line of characters asynchronously from the current string and returns the data as a string. (Overrides TextReader..::.ReadLineAsync()()().)
ReadToEnd Reads the stream as a string, either in its entirety or from the current position to the end of the stream. (Overrides TextReader..::.ReadToEnd()()().)
ReadToEndAsync Reads all characters from the current position to the end of the string asynchronously and returns them as a single string. (Overrides TextReader..::.ReadToEndAsync()()().)
ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
