NegotiateStream.WriteTimeout Property

Definition

Gets or sets the amount of time a write operation blocks waiting for data.

public:
 virtual property int WriteTimeout { int get(); void set(int value); };
public override int WriteTimeout { get; set; }
member this.WriteTimeout : int with get, set
Public Overrides Property WriteTimeout As Integer

Property Value

A Int32 that specifies the amount of time that will elapse before a write operation fails.

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

This property returns the value returned by invoking the WriteTimeout property on the underlying stream. For set operations, the specified value sets the WriteTimeout value on the underlying stream.

If the underlying stream is a NetworkStream, WriteTimeout is in milliseconds and is set to Infinite by default so that write operations do not time out.
