TarData Property

(Decompression only) The tar file contents as a byte array.


public string TarData { set; }
public byte[] TarDataB { set; }
Public WriteOnly Property TarData As String
Public WriteOnly Property TarDataB As Byte()

Default Value



Normally you should set ArchiveFile before invoking Scan or Extract. If you prefer to read the tar file from memory you may set TarData instead. TarData should be set to the entire contents of the tar file; this will allow you to read from the archive without writing any temporary files to disk.

If you would like to extract data from the archive without ever writing to disk you should also set WriteToProgressEvent to true, and after invoking Scan, you should set the value of DecompressedName for each file in the Files collection to an empty string. Then, when you invoke Extract (or ExtractAll) the data will be provided in the Progress event.

This property is write-only. Note that modifying a tar file stored in TarData is not supported, so Append, Delete, etc., will throw exceptions.

This property is write-only and not available at design time.
