BufferedStream.CanWrite Property

Gets a value indicating whether the current stream supports writing.

Namespace:  System.IO
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public override bool CanWrite { get; }

Property Value

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

If a class derived from Stream does not support writing, a call to SetLength, Write, or WriteByte throws a NotSupportedException.

If the stream is closed, this property returns false.
