BufferedStream.CanRead Property


Gets a value indicating whether the current stream supports reading.

 virtual property bool CanRead { bool get(); };
public override bool CanRead { get; }
member this.CanRead : bool
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property CanRead As Boolean

Property Value

true if the stream supports reading; false if the stream is closed or was opened with write-only access.


This code example is part of a larger example provided for the BufferedStream class.

if ( bufStream->CanRead )
   Client::ReceiveData( netStream, bufStream );

    ReceiveData(netStream, bufStream);
If bufStream.CanRead Then
    ReceiveData(netStream, bufStream)
End If


If a class derived from Stream does not support reading, calls to the Read, ReadByte, BeginRead, EndRead, and the Peek methods of StreamReader, StringReader, and TextReader throw a NotSupportedException.

If the stream is closed, this property returns false.
