SslStream.CanWrite Property

Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether the underlying stream is writable.

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

public override bool CanWrite { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if authentication has occurred and the underlying stream is writable; otherwise false.

If successful authentication has occurred, this property returns the value returned by invoking CanWrite on the underlying stream.

The underlying stream is specified when you create an instance of the SslStream class.

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

static void DisplayStreamProperties(SslStream stream)
{
   Console.WriteLine("Can read: {0}, write {1}", stream.CanRead, stream.CanWrite);
   Console.WriteLine("Can timeout: {0}", stream.CanTimeout);
}
static void DisplayStreamProperties(SslStream* stream)
{
    Console::WriteLine(S"Can read: {0}, write {1}", __box(stream->CanRead), __box(stream->CanWrite));
    Console::WriteLine(S"Can timeout: {0}", __box(stream->CanTimeout));
}
