Stream.CanTimeout Stream.CanTimeout Stream.CanTimeout Stream.CanTimeout Property

Definition

Gets a value that determines whether the current stream can time out.

public:
 virtual property bool CanTimeout { bool get(); };
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.ComVisible(false)]
public virtual bool CanTimeout { get; }
member this.CanTimeout : bool
Public Overridable ReadOnly Property CanTimeout As Boolean

Property Value

A value that determines whether the current stream can time out.

Remarks

The CanTimeout property always returns false. Some stream implementations require different behavior, such as NetworkStream, which times out if network connectivity is interrupted or lost. If you are implementing a stream that must be able to time out, this property should be overridden to return true.
