Public Overrides Function Read ( _
	buffer As Byte(), _
	offset As Integer, _
	count As Integer _
) As Integer
public override int Read(
	byte[] buffer,
	int offset,
	int count


Type: array<System..::..Byte>[]()[][]
An array of bytes. When this method returns, the buffer contains the specified byte array with the values between offset and (offset + count - 1) replaced by the bytes read from the current source.
Type: System..::..Int32
The zero-based byte offset in buffer at which to begin storing the data read from the current stream.
Type: System..::..Int32
The maximum number of bytes to be read from the current stream.

Return Value

The total number of bytes read into the buffer. This can be less than the number of bytes requested if that many bytes are not currently available, or zero (0) if the end of the stream has been reached.


System..::..ArgumentException The sum of offset and count is larger than the buffer length.
System..::..ArgumentNullExceptionbuffer is null.
System..::..ArgumentOutOfRangeExceptionoffset or count is negative.
System.IO..::..IOException An I/O error occurs.
System..::..NotSupportedException The stream does not support reading.
System..::..ObjectDisposedException Methods were called after the stream was closed.
