Hi,

I want to write to memory a string "Hello World!" and i want to read it from memory using "Memory Stream" in Visual Basic.NET 2003. Can you please provide me the sample code for that ? Advance thanks for your time & patience.

Here is the sample code to write data:

Public Sub WriteToStream()

    Dim ms As New MemoryStream
    Dim strText As String = "Hello World!"
    Dim enc As New UTF8Encoding
    Dim arrBytData() As Byte = enc.GetBytes(strText)
    ms.Write(arrBytData, 0, arrBytData.Length)
    ms.Close()
    ms = Nothing

End Sub

Thanks

Is this what you are looking for?  This will read text from an existing memory stream.  One thing that you have to remember to do is to seek to the beginning of an existing stream before you read from it.

    Public Sub ReadFromStream(ByVal ms As MemoryStream)
        Dim data(ms.Length) As Byte
        Dim text As String

        ms.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin)
        ms.Read(data, 0, data.Length)
        text = System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetString(data)
        ms.Close()

        MessageBox.Show(text)
    End Sub
