public class PingCompletedEventArgs : AsyncCompletedEventArgs

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyCancelled

Gets a value indicating whether an asynchronous operation has been canceled.(Inherited from AsyncCompletedEventArgs.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyError

Gets a value indicating which error occurred during an asynchronous operation.(Inherited from AsyncCompletedEventArgs.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyReply

Gets an object that contains data that describes an attempt to send an Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) echo request message and receive a corresponding ICMP echo reply message.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyUserState

Gets the unique identifier for the asynchronous task.(Inherited from AsyncCompletedEventArgs.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodRaiseExceptionIfNecessary()

Raises a user-supplied exception if an asynchronous operation failed.(Inherited from AsyncCompletedEventArgs.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

Instances of this class are passed to a PingCompletedEventHandler method that is called when a SendAsync call completes. The SendAsync methods send an Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) echo request asynchronously and wait for a corresponding ICMP echo reply message. The Reply property contains the results of the ICMP echo request.

The following code example demonstrates sending an ICMP echo request asynchronously.
