ReadObjectArray

Reads an array of objects.

[OwnerReturn]
method ReadObjectArray ()
type ISerializable[]
returns The read array.

Remarks:

This method can also be used to read elements that have been written as an object collection.

Exceptions:

ReadObjectCollection

Reads a collection of objects.

method ReadObjectCollection (IBag<ISerializable> collection)
params collection [not-null] The output collection.

Remarks:

This method can also be used to read elements that have been written as an object array.

Methods

Flush

Flushes all cached data.

method Flush ()

Remarks:

Performing a flush may result in I/O work. Depending on the semantics of the implementing class, this work may need to be wrapped in special Begin/End method calls. See the documentation of the implementing classes for details.

In case this object represents a read-only resource, calling the Flush method has no effect.
