I have the following piece of code:
byte buffer = new byte;
uint totalRead = 0;
long posStart = this.ZipFileStream.Position;
long sourceStart = _source.Position;
DeflateStream outStream = new DeflateStream(_destination, CompressionMode.Compress, CompressionLevel.BestCompression);
bytesRead = _source.Read(buffer, 0, buffer.Length);
totalRead += (uint)bytesRead;
if (bytesRead > 0)
outStream.Write(buffer, 0, bytesRead);
} while (bytesRead == buffer.Length);
long compressedSize = outStream.TotalOut;
In this piece of code I want to compress a given (_source) stream into an output (_destination) stream. Afterwards I want to see how many bytes have been written into the destination stream by using the TotalOut property. But this property often returns 0 or another number which not the total size of the compressed data...
What am I missing or doing wrong?
