PingCompletedEventHandler Delegate

Represents the method that will handle the PingCompleted event of a Ping object.

Namespace: System.Net.NetworkInformation
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public delegate void PingCompletedEventHandler (
	Object sender,
	PingCompletedEventArgs e
)
/** @delegate */
public delegate void PingCompletedEventHandler (
	Object sender, 
	PingCompletedEventArgs e
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

sender

The source of the PingCompleted event.

e

A PingCompletedEventArgs object that contains the event data.

User data that is specified in a SendAsync call is available to the method invoked by this delegate in the UserState property.

The following code example demonstrates specifying a PingCompletedEventHandler to respond to a PingCompleted event.

using System;
using System.Text;
using System.Net;

using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Threading;

namespace Examples.System.Net.NetworkInformation.PingTest
{
    public class PingExample
    {
        public static void Main (string[] args)
        {
            if (args.Length == 0)
                throw new ArgumentException ("Ping needs a host or IP Address.");

            string who = args[0];
            AutoResetEvent waiter = new AutoResetEvent (false);

            Ping pingSender = new Ping ();

            // When the PingCompleted event is raised,
            // the PingCompletedCallback method is called.
            pingSender.PingCompleted += new PingCompletedEventHandler (PingCompletedCallback);

            // Create a buffer of 32 bytes of data to be transmitted.
            string data = "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa";
            byte[] buffer = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes (data);

            // Wait 12 seconds for a reply.
            int timeout = 12000;

            // Set options for transmission:
            // The data can go through 64 gateways or routers
            // before it is destroyed, and the data packet
            // cannot be fragmented.
            PingOptions options = new PingOptions (64, true);

            Console.WriteLine ("Time to live: {0}", options.Ttl);

            // Send the ping asynchronously.
            // Use the waiter as the user token.
            // When the callback completes, it can wake up this thread.
            pingSender.SendAsync(who, timeout, buffer, options, waiter);

            // Prevent this example application from ending.
            // A real application should do something useful
            // when possible.
            waiter.WaitOne ();
            Console.WriteLine ("Ping example completed.");
        }
