Property Value

The Enabled property returns true if a speech recognizer can perform recognition using the speech recognition grammar; otherwise the property returns false. The default is true.

An instance of Grammar may be enabled or disabled independently of being loaded by a speech recognition engine.

The following example writes information about a Grammar object to the console.

private static void DumpGrammarStatus(Grammar item)
  Console.WriteLine("Grammar name is {0}:", item.Name);
  Console.WriteLine("  The Grammar {0} loaded.",
    item.Loaded ? "is" : "is not");
  Console.WriteLine("  The Grammar {0} enabled.",
    item.Enabled ? "is" : "is not");
  if (item.RuleName != null)
    Console.WriteLine("  The root rule is {0}.", item.RuleName);
    Console.WriteLine("  The Grammar does not specify a root rule.");
