CancellationToken.CanBeCanceled Property


Gets whether this token is capable of being in the canceled state.

Namespace:   System.Threading
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public bool CanBeCanceled { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if this token is capable of being in the canceled state; otherwise, false.

If CanBeCanceled returns false, it is guaranteed that the token will never transition into a canceled state, meaning that IsCancellationRequested will never return true. A cancellation token that cannot be canceled is returned by the static CancellationToken.None property.

You can optionally use this property to determine whether a cancellation token can be canceled before examing the value of the IsCancellationRequested property to determine whether it has been canceled.
