This object can then be passed to the various LEADTOOLS class members that accept an ILeadStream object. Such as RasterCodecs.GetInformationAsync, RasterCodecs.LoadAsync or RasterCodecs.LoadSvgAsync.

The method will create a new instance of LeadFileStream using:

C#
return new LeadFileStream(fileName, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read, FileShare.Read); 

Refer to RasterCodecs Async Operations for more information and examples.
