TextRange.CanSave(String) TextRange.CanSave(String) TextRange.CanSave(String) TextRange.CanSave(String) Method

Definition

Checks whether the current selection can be saved as a specified data format.

public:
 bool CanSave(System::String ^ dataFormat);
public bool CanSave (string dataFormat);
member this.CanSave : string -> bool
Public Function CanSave (dataFormat As String) As Boolean

Parameters

dataFormat
String String String String

A data format to check for save compatibility with the current selection. See DataFormats for a list of predefined data formats.

Returns

true if the current selection can be saved as the specified data format; otherwise, false.

Examples

The following example demonstrates the use of the CanSave method.

// This method accepts an input stream and a corresponding data format.  The method
// will attempt to load the input stream into a TextRange selection, apply Bold formatting
// to the selection, save the reformatted selection to an alternat stream, and return 
// the reformatted stream.  
Stream BoldFormatStream(Stream inputStream, string dataFormat)
{
    // A text container to read the stream into.
    FlowDocument workDoc = new FlowDocument();
    TextRange selection = new TextRange(workDoc.ContentStart, workDoc.ContentEnd);
    Stream outputStream = new MemoryStream();

    try
    {
        // Check for a valid data format, and then attempt to load the input stream
        // into the current selection.  Note that CanLoad ONLY checks whether dataFormat
        // is a currently supported data format for loading a TextRange.  It does not 
        // verify that the stream actually contains the specified format.  An exception 
        // may be raised when there is a mismatch between the specified data format and 
        // the data in the stream. 
        if (selection.CanLoad(dataFormat))
            selection.Load(inputStream, dataFormat);
    }
    catch (Exception e) { return outputStream; /* Load failure; return a null stream. */ }

    // Apply Bold formatting to the selection, if it is not empty.
    if (!selection.IsEmpty)
        selection.ApplyPropertyValue(TextElement.FontWeightProperty, FontWeights.Bold);

    // Save the formatted selection to a stream, and return the stream.
    if (selection.CanSave(dataFormat))
        selection.Save(outputStream, dataFormat);

    return outputStream;
}

    Catch e As Exception ' Load failure return a null stream. 
        Return outputStream
    End Try

    ' Apply Bold formatting to the selection, if it is not empty.
    If Not selection.IsEmpty Then
        selection.ApplyPropertyValue(TextElement.FontWeightProperty, FontWeights.Bold)
    End If

    ' Save the formatted selection to a stream, and return the stream.
    If selection.CanSave(dataFormat) Then
        selection.Save(outputStream, dataFormat)
    End If

    Return outputStream
End Function

Remarks

Use the corresponding Save method to actually save the current selection in a specified data format.
