Hello friends,
I am using "CryptoStream" to read data from my encrypted file. If this file is empty it raises an exception. Now i want to check whether my file is empty or not.
Plz tell me the way.

Hi friend.
you can use System.IO namespace to provide filing functionality. to check the availability of file you must go as under
<br />
if(File.Exist("File path"))<br />
{<br />
//perform encryption function here in<br />
}<br />

Reason for my vote of 2
while he marked it as an answer, it actually doesn't answer his question, which said if the file is empty. The language implies that the file exists, but has nothing in it. If that is the case in which the exception is being thrown, then this answer will not solve that problem.

Looking at the msdn sample here, I noticed that they check if while(rdlen < totlen) as a while condition.

You have not provided any code here, so I cannot be sure - but I guess a condition like this should be sufficient to avoid null errors? You can always directly check if an object is null by doing an if condidition check against it.
