BufferedStream.CanRead Property

Gets a value indicating whether the current stream supports reading.

Namespace:  System.IO
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public override bool CanRead { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the stream supports reading; false if the stream is closed or was opened with write-only access.

If a class derived from Stream does not support reading, calls to the Read, ReadByte, BeginRead, EndRead, and the Peek methods of StreamReader, StringReader, and TextReader throw a NotSupportedException.

If the stream is closed, this property returns false.

This code example is part of a larger example provided for the BufferedStream class.

if(bufStream.CanRead)
{
    ReceiveData(netStream, bufStream);
}
