Implement the IInputStreamReference interface when your Windows Runtime component exposes a sequential read-only stream to callers. For a random access stream, implement the IRandomAccessStreamReference interface. For info on implementing the IInputStreamReference interface, see the Remarks at IRandomAccessStreamReference.
