SslStream.BeginWrite(Byte[], Int32, Int32, AsyncCallback, Object) SslStream.BeginWrite(Byte[], Int32, Int32, AsyncCallback, Object) SslStream.BeginWrite(Byte[], Int32, Int32, AsyncCallback, Object) Method

Definition

Begins an asynchronous write operation that writes Bytes from the specified buffer to the stream.

public:
 override IAsyncResult ^ BeginWrite(cli::array <System::Byte> ^ buffer, int offset, int count, AsyncCallback ^ asyncCallback, System::Object ^ asyncState);
public override IAsyncResult BeginWrite (byte[] buffer, int offset, int count, AsyncCallback asyncCallback, object asyncState);
override this.BeginWrite : byte[] * int * int * AsyncCallback * obj -> IAsyncResult

Parameters

buffer
Byte[]

A Byte array that supplies the bytes to be written to the stream.

offset
Int32 Int32 Int32

The zero-based location in buffer at which to begin reading bytes to be written to the stream.

count
Int32 Int32 Int32

An Int32 value that specifies the number of bytes to read from buffer.

asyncCallback
AsyncCallback AsyncCallback AsyncCallback

An AsyncCallback delegate that references the method to invoke when the write operation is complete.

asyncState
Object Object Object

A user-defined object that contains information about the write operation. This object is passed to the asyncCallback delegate when the operation completes.

Returns

An IAsyncResult object indicating the status of the asynchronous operation.

Exceptions

offset < 0.

-or-offset > the length of buffer.

-or-

offset + count > the length of buffer.

The write operation failed.

There is already a write operation in progress.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates calling this method.

void ReadCallback( IAsyncResult^ ar )
{
   ClientState^ state = dynamic_cast<ClientState^>(ar->AsyncState);
   SslStream^ stream = state->stream;
   
   // Read the  message sent by the client.
   // The end of the message is signaled using the
   // "<EOF>" marker.
   int byteCount = -1;
   try
   {
      Console::WriteLine( L"Reading data from the client." );
      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( state->buffer, 0, byteCount ));
      decoder->GetChars( state->buffer, 0, byteCount, chars, 0 );
      state->readData->Append( chars );
      
      // Check for EOF or an empty message.
      if ( state->readData->ToString()->IndexOf( L"<EOF>" ) == -1 && byteCount != 0 )
      {
         
         // We are not finished reading.
         // Asynchronously read more message data from  the client.
         stream->BeginRead( state->buffer, 0, state->buffer->Length, gcnew AsyncCallback( this, &SslTcpListener::ReadCallback ), state );
      }
      else
      {
         Console::WriteLine( L"Message from the client: {0}", state->readData );
      }
      
      // Encode a test message into a byte array.
      // Signal the end of the message using "<EOF>".
      array<Byte>^message = Encoding::UTF8->GetBytes( L"Hello from the server.<EOF>" );
      
      // Asynchronously send the message to the client.
      stream->BeginWrite( message, 0, message->Length, gcnew AsyncCallback( this, &SslTcpListener::WriteCallback ), state );
   }
