BufferedStream.CanWrite Property


Gets a value indicating whether the current stream supports writing.

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

Property Value


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


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

if ( bufStream->CanWrite )
   Client::SendData( netStream, bufStream );
    SendData(netStream, bufStream);
If bufStream.CanWrite Then
    SendData(netStream, bufStream)
End If


If a class derived from Stream does not support writing, a call to SetLength, Write, or WriteByte throws a NotSupportedException.

If the stream is closed, this property returns false.
