Definition

Defines the polling modes for the Poll(Int32, SelectMode) method.

public enum class SelectMode

Public Enum SelectMode
Inheritance

Fields

SelectError SelectError SelectError SelectError 2

Error status mode.

SelectRead SelectRead SelectRead SelectRead 0

Read status mode.

SelectWrite SelectWrite SelectWrite SelectWrite 1

Write status mode.

Examples

The following example checks the status of a Socket using all three SelectMode enumeration values. A call to Socket.Poll using the SelectWrite enumerated value should return true.

//Creates the Socket for sending data over TCP.
Socket^ s = gcnew Socket( AddressFamily::InterNetwork, SocketType::Stream,
   ProtocolType::Tcp );

// Connects to host using IPEndPoint.
s->Connect( EPhost );
if ( !s->Connected )
{
   strRetPage = "Unable to connect to host";
}
// Use the SelectWrite enumeration to obtain Socket status.
if ( s->Poll( -1, SelectMode::SelectWrite ) )
{
   Console::WriteLine( "This Socket is writable." );
}
else if ( s->Poll(  -1, SelectMode::SelectRead ) )
{
   Console::WriteLine( "This Socket is readable." );
}
else if ( s->Poll(  -1, SelectMode::SelectError ) )
{
   Console::WriteLine( "This Socket has an error." );
}
//Creates the Socket for sending data over TCP.
Socket s = new Socket(AddressFamily.InterNetwork, SocketType.Stream,
   ProtocolType.Tcp );

// Connects to host using IPEndPoint.
s.Connect(EPhost);
if (!s.Connected)
{
   strRetPage = "Unable to connect to host";
}
// Use the SelectWrite enumeration to obtain Socket status.
 if(s.Poll(-1, SelectMode.SelectWrite)){
      Console.WriteLine("This Socket is writable.");
 }
 else if (s.Poll(-1, SelectMode.SelectRead)){
 	   Console.WriteLine("This Socket is readable." );
 }
 else if (s.Poll(-1, SelectMode.SelectError)){
      Console.WriteLine("This Socket has an error.");
 }

'Creates the Socket for sending data over TCP.
Dim s As New Socket(AddressFamily.InterNetwork, SocketType.Stream, ProtocolType.Tcp)

' Connects to host using IPEndPoint.
s.Connect(EPhost)
If Not s.Connected Then
   strRetPage = "Unable to connect to host"
End If
' Use the SelectWrite enumeration to obtain Socket status.
If s.Poll(- 1, SelectMode.SelectWrite) Then
   Console.WriteLine("This Socket is writable.")
Else
   If s.Poll(- 1, SelectMode.SelectRead) Then
      Console.WriteLine(("This Socket is readable. "))
   Else
      If s.Poll(- 1, SelectMode.SelectError) Then
         Console.WriteLine("This Socket has an error.")
      End If
   End If 
End If 

Remarks

The SelectMode enumeration defines the polling modes that can be passed to the Socket.Poll method. Use the SelectRead value to determine if a listening Socket has incoming connection requests. Use the SelectWrite value to determine if a Socket is writeable. Use the SelectError value to determine if there is an error condition present on the Socket. For explanations of writeability, readability, and the presence of error conditions, see the Socket.Poll method.
