StreamReader Constructor (Stream, Encoding)
Initializes a new instance of the StreamReader class for the specified stream, using the specified character encoding.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration Public Sub New ( _ stream As Stream, _ encoding As Encoding _ )
public StreamReader( Stream stream, Encoding encoding )
The character encoding is set by the encoding parameter, and the default buffer size is used. The StreamReader object attempts to detect the encoding by looking at the first three bytes of the stream. It automatically recognizes UTF-8, little-endian Unicode, and big-endian Unicode text if the file starts with the appropriate byte order marks. Otherwise, the user-provided encoding is used. See the Encoding.GetPreamble method for more information.
When you compile a set of characters with a particular cultural setting and retrieve those same characters with a different cultural setting, the characters might not be interpretable, and could cause an exception to be thrown.
