SendCompletedEventHandler Delegate

Represents the method that will handle the SendCompleted event.

Namespace:  System.Net.Mail
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

Public Delegate Sub SendCompletedEventHandler ( _
	sender As Object, _
	e As AsyncCompletedEventArgs _
Dim instance As New SendCompletedEventHandler(AddressOf HandlerMethod)


Type: System.Object

The source of the event.

Type: System.ComponentModel.AsyncCompletedEventArgs

An AsyncCompletedEventArgs containing event data.

The SendCompletedEventHandler delegate is used to handle events that occur when the SmtpClient class finishes asynchronously sending an e-mail message using the SendAsync method.

The following code example demonstrates sending an e-mail message asynchronously. It uses a SendCompletedEventHandler to invoke the SendCompletedCallback method to handle SendCompleted events.

            ' Get the unique identifier for this asynchronous operation. 
            Dim token As String = CStr(e.UserState)

            If e.Cancelled Then
                Console.WriteLine("[{0}] Send canceled.", token)
            End If 
            If e.Error IsNot Nothing Then
                Console.WriteLine("[{0}] {1}", token, e.Error.ToString())
                Console.WriteLine("Message sent.")
