NegotiateStream.ReadTimeout Property

Gets or sets the amount of time a read operation blocks waiting for data.

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

public override int ReadTimeout { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
A Int32 that specifies the amount of time that will elapse before a read operation fails.

This property returns the value returned by invoking the ReadTimeout property on the underlying stream. When you set this property, the ReadTimeout value on the underlying stream is set to the specified value.

If the underlying stream is a NetworkStream, ReadTimeout is in milliseconds and is set to Infinite by default so that read operations do not time out.

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);
     }
}
