[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Writes the stream contents to a byte array, regardless of the Position property.

Namespace: System.IO
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Syntax

Public Overridable Function ToArray As Byte()
public virtual byte[] ToArray()

Return Value

Type: array<System..::.Byte>[]()[]
A new byte array.

Remarks

This method omits unused bytes in MemoryStream from the array. To get the entire buffer, use the GetBuffer method.

This method returns a copy of the contents of the MemoryStream as a byte array. If the current instance was constructed on a provided byte array, a copy of the section of the array to which this instance has access is returned. See the MemoryStream constructor for details.

Note

This method works when the MemoryStream is closed.
