Name

UnicodeEncoding

Synopsis

This class encodes Unicode characters as UTF-16, two-byte characters. This class supports little-endian and big-endian encodings. With zero arguments, the overloaded constructor for this class uses little-endian byte order by default. The two-argument constructor can use a boolean true as the first argument to specify big-endian byte order. If set to true, the second boolean argument specifies the inclusion of the Unicode byte-order mark in the resulting string. A UnicodeEncoding can also be obtained from two Encoding properties. A little-endian encoding is returned by Encoding.Unicode. A big-endian encoding is returned by Encoding.BigEndianUnicode.
