SslStream.EndRead(IAsyncResult) Method

Definition

Ends an asynchronous read operation started with a previous call to BeginRead(Byte[], Int32, Int32, AsyncCallback, Object).

public:
 override int EndRead(IAsyncResult ^ asyncResult);
public override int EndRead (IAsyncResult asyncResult);
override this.EndRead : IAsyncResult -> int
Public Overrides Function EndRead (asyncResult As IAsyncResult) As Integer

Parameters

Returns

A Int32 value that specifies the number of bytes read from the underlying stream.

Implements

Mono.Net.Security.IMonoSslStream.EndRead(System.IAsyncResult)

Exceptions

asyncResult is null.

There is no pending read operation to complete.

-or-

Authentication has not occurred.

The read operation failed.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates ending an asynchronous read operation.

static void ReadCallback( IAsyncResult^ ar )
{
   
   // Read the  message sent by the server.
   // The end of the message is signaled using the
   // "<EOF>" marker.
   SslStream^ stream = dynamic_cast<SslStream^>(ar->AsyncState);
   int byteCount = -1;
   try
   {
      Console::WriteLine( L"Reading data from the server." );
      byteCount = stream->EndRead( ar );
      
      // Use Decoder class to convert from bytes to UTF8
      // in case a character spans two buffers.
      Decoder^ decoder = Encoding::UTF8->GetDecoder();
      array<Char>^chars = gcnew array<Char>(decoder->GetCharCount( buffer, 0, byteCount ));
      decoder->GetChars( buffer, 0, byteCount, chars, 0 );
      readData->Append( chars );
      
      // Check for EOF or an empty message.
      if ( readData->ToString()->IndexOf( L"<EOF>" ) == -1 && byteCount != 0 )
      {
         
         // We are not finished reading.
         // Asynchronously read more message data from  the server.
         stream->BeginRead( buffer, 0, buffer->Length, gcnew AsyncCallback( ReadCallback ), stream );
      }
      else

Remarks

If the operation has not completed, this method blocks until it does.

To perform this operation synchronously, use the Read method.

You cannot call this method until you have successfully authenticated. To authenticate call one of the AuthenticateAsClient, or BeginAuthenticateAsClient, AuthenticateAsServer, BeginAuthenticateAsServer methods.
