Storages & Files StreamBegin
StreamBegin read/write property

Sets the actual stream begin at the desired position. As result the part of the stream before the specified position is skipped if only Filter supplied or SFRecord supplied navigation methods are used. Can be extremely useful if the file contains headers with different structure (one well-known example are DBF files).


object.StreamBegin = numeric_value
variable = object.StreamBegin


The position is integer value in bytes from the beginning of the stream


See the Seek method - it supplies the same functionality like SFStream.Seek but its base unit is the filter's buffer size (the Record size if used with SFRecord) and also the StreamBegin takes effect and acts as virtual beginning of the stream.

Applies to: SFFilter object

Supported on:
