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.
