public bool CanSignOut { get; }
Public ReadOnly Property CanSignOut As bool
var bool = onlineIdAuthenticator.canSignOut;

Property Value

bool bool bool

True if the user can sign out and the sign out link should be shown in the app, otherwise false.

Examples

var canSignOut = onlineIdAuthenticator.canSignOut;

if (Boolean(canSignOut)){

   // Add a "sign out" link to Charm settings.
}

Remarks

An app that uses the OnlineIdAuthenticator class must show an option for the user to sign out. The sign out option must appear in the Settings charm, and the app must create a new page for its user account settings in Accounts. To see an example of how to add the sign out option and the account setting page, see the Windows Account Authorization sample.

If the user has a connected account, they can sign out by visiting the Users page in PC Settings.

If this property is false, a call to SignOutUserAsync fails with the ONL_E_CONNECTED_ACCOUNT_CAN_NOT_SIGNOUT error code.
