Socket still sending?

P: n/a
Hello Fellow Developer,

I use the System.Net.Sockets to send/receive data (no
tcpclient/tcplistener), I made a receivethread in my wrapper, the
receivethread loops/sleeps while waiting for data and then fires a
datareceived event.
Within the waitingloop there is a timeout function, but I want the the
'last-time-socket-used' variable set when the socket is finished sending.
When I send by System.Net.Sockets.Socket.Send(buffer()) (<--this can be
10Mb) then it imitially returns to my thread, so the (internal) Send
functions buffers it. I tried to Poll, but this only tells you if you could
write to the socket, and I tried the getSocketOption(Tried
Socket/TCP/IP,Tried
SendBuffer/ReceiveBuffer/SendLowWater/ReceiveLowWater/SendTimeout/ReceiveTim
eout) but that throws an Error. (Before u look in my code I would like to
explain that I want to catch all exceptions in the parent object.)

Regards,
Robert

Hi Robert,

Are you using Blocking or Non-Blocking mode?
AFAIK when used in blocking mode the method is blocked till it finishes.
Other solution would be to try asnyc sending..

Hello Miha,

Thanks for your reaction.

I tried _Socket.Blocking = True in the sub ConnectThread. But this made no
differends.

With asnyc sending (BeginSend..EndSend), After the async callsback the
socket is still sending (even if blocking is on)

The code for async is this:

Private Sub SendFinish(ByVal pia As System.IAsyncResult)
Try
If Not Connected Then Throw New Exception("Socket isn't
connected")
Dim i As Long = _Socket.EndSend(pia)
_Iswriting = False
Catch e As Exception
_Iswriting = False
OnError(e)
End Try
End Sub

Public Overridable Overloads Sub Send(ByRef data() As Byte)
Try
If Not Connected Then Throw New Exception("Socket isn't
connected")
'A data arrival can be faster then the syncthread
Thread.CurrentThread.Sleep(500) 'This is probally _ReadThread
If _Iswriting Then Throw New Exception("Already sending")
_Iswriting = True 'Cant write more then once!! TX/RC/RC/TX no
RC/TX/TX/RC
'SyncLock _Socket
'_Socket.Send(data)
_Socket.BeginSend(data, 0, data.Length, SocketFlags.None,
AddressOf SendFinish, Nothing)
'End SyncLock
'_Iswriting = False
Catch e As Exception
'_Iswriting = False
OnError(e)
End Try
End Sub
