Create creates a new instance of a TFileStream class. It opens the file AFileName with mode Mode, which can have one of the following values:

fmCreate TFileStream.Create creates a new file if needed.
fmOpenRead TFileStream.Create opens a file with read-only access.
fmOpenWrite TFileStream.Create opens a file with write-only access.
fmOpenReadWrite TFileStream.Create opens a file with read-write access.

After the file has been opened in the requested mode and a handle has been obtained from the operating system, the inherited constructor is called.


If the file could not be opened in the requested mode, an EFOpenError exception is raised.
