NegotiateStream.CanTimeout Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether the underlying stream supports time-outs.

Namespace: System.Net.Security
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public override bool CanTimeout { get; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_CanTimeout ()

public override function get CanTimeout () : boolean

Property Value

true if the underlying stream supports time-outs; otherwise, false.

This property returns the value returned by invoking the CanTimeout property on the underlying stream. The underlying stream is specified when you create an instance of the NegotiateStream class.

The following code example demonstrates displaying the value of this property.

 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);
     }
}
