Sets the position within the current stream to the specified value.
public: override long Seek(long offset, System::IO::SeekOrigin loc);
public override long Seek (long offset, System.IO.SeekOrigin loc);
override this.Seek : int64 * System.IO.SeekOrigin -> int64
Public Overrides Function Seek (offset As Long, loc As SeekOrigin) As Long
The new position within the stream. This is relative to the
loc parameter, and can be positive or negative.
A value of type SeekOrigin, which acts as the seek reference point.
The new position within the stream, calculated by combining the initial reference point and the offset.
Seeking is attempted before the beginning of the stream.
offset is greater than Int32.MaxValue.
There is an invalid SeekOrigin.
offset caused an arithmetic overflow.
The current stream instance is closed.
This code example is part of a larger example provided for the MemoryStream class.
// Set the stream position to the beginning of the stream. memStream->Seek( 0, SeekOrigin::Begin );
// Set the position to the beginning of the stream. memStream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin);
' Set the stream position to the beginning of the stream. memStream.Seek(0, SeekOrigin.Begin)
This method overrides Stream.Seek.
Seeking to any location beyond the length of the stream is supported.
Do not use the Seek method to determine the new position in the stream if the MemoryStream was initialized with a non-zero offset. If you do, Seek will return an inaccurate value. Instead, use the Position property to get the new position of the stream.
