InputStreamOverStream InputStreamOverStream InputStreamOverStream InputStreamOverStream Class


Provides a Windows Runtime input stream for an IStream base implementation.

public : sealed class InputStreamOverStream : IClosable, IInputStream
public sealed class InputStreamOverStream : IDisposable, IInputStream
Public NotInheritable Class InputStreamOverStream Implements IDisposable, IInputStream
// This class does not provide a public constructor.
Windows 10 requirements
Device family
Windows 10 (introduced v10.0.10240.0)
API contract
Windows.Foundation.UniversalApiContract (introduced v1)


The InputStreamOverStream, OutputStreamOverStream, and RandomAccessStreamOverStream classes are interop helpers to convert between the Windows Runtime stream types, which are natively asynchronous, and the Component Object Model (COM) IStream types, which are natively synchronous.

These helper classes make it easier for to reuse legacy code when you transition to the Windows Runtime stream types.

ReadAsync(IBuffer, UInt32, InputStreamOptions) ReadAsync(IBuffer, UInt32, InputStreamOptions) ReadAsync(IBuffer, UInt32, InputStreamOptions) ReadAsync(IBuffer, UInt32, InputStreamOptions)

Returns an asynchronous byte reader object.

public : IAsyncOperationWithProgress<IBuffer, unsigned int> ReadAsync(IBuffer buffer, unsigned int count, InputStreamOptions options)
public IAsyncOperationWithProgress<IBuffer, uint> ReadAsync(IBuffer buffer, UInt32 count, InputStreamOptions options)
Public Function ReadAsync(buffer As IBuffer, count As UInt32, options As InputStreamOptions) As IAsyncOperationWithProgress( Of IBuffer )( Of uint )
Windows.Storage.Streams.InputStreamOverStream.readAsync(buffer, count, options).done( /* Your success and error handlers */ );
IBuffer IBuffer IBuffer IBuffer

The buffer into which the asynchronous read operation places the bytes that are read.

unsigned int UInt32 UInt32 UInt32

The number of bytes to read that is less than or equal to the Capacity value.

InputStreamOptions InputStreamOptions InputStreamOptions InputStreamOptions

Specifies the type of the asynchronous read operation.
