NegotiateStream.CanSeek Property

Definition

Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether the underlying stream is seekable.

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

Property Value

This property always returns false.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates displaying the value of this property.

static void DisplayStreamProperties( NegotiateStream^ stream )
{
   Console::WriteLine( L"Can read: {0}", stream->CanRead );
   Console::WriteLine( L"Can write: {0}", stream->CanWrite );
   Console::WriteLine( L"Can seek: {0}", stream->CanSeek );
   try
   {
      
      // If the underlying stream supports it, display the length.
      Console::WriteLine( L"Length: {0}", stream->Length );
   }
   catch ( NotSupportedException^ ) 
   {
      Console::WriteLine( L"Cannot get the length of the underlying stream." );
   }

   if ( stream->CanTimeout )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( L"Read time-out: {0}", stream->ReadTimeout );
      Console::WriteLine( L"Write time-out: {0}", stream->WriteTimeout );
   }
}


 static void DisplayStreamProperties(NegotiateStream stream)
{
     Console.WriteLine("Can read: {0}", stream.CanRead);
     Console.WriteLine("Can write: {0}", stream.CanWrite);
     Console.WriteLine("Can seek: {0}", stream.CanSeek);
     try 
     {
         // If the underlying stream supports it, display the length.
         Console.WriteLine("Length: {0}", stream.Length);
     } catch (NotSupportedException)
     {
             Console.WriteLine("Cannot get the length of the underlying stream.");
     }
     
     if (stream.CanTimeout)
     {
         Console.WriteLine("Read time-out: {0}", stream.ReadTimeout);
         Console.WriteLine("Write time-out: {0}", stream.WriteTimeout);
     }
}

Remarks

You should not attempt to set the position of the NegotiateStream object or its underlying stream. The underlying stream is specified when you create an instance of the NegotiateStream class.
