EndEventHandler Delegate


Represents the method that handles asynchronous events such as application events.

Namespace:   System.Web
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

Public Delegate Sub EndEventHandler (
	ar As IAsyncResult


Type: System.IAsyncResult

The IAsyncResult that is the result of the BeginEventHandler operation.

This delegate is called by the event source when completion of the asynchronous operation is signaled by a callback to the BeginEventHandler delegate.

When you create an EndEventHandler delegate, you identify the method that will handle the event. To associate the event with your event handler, add an instance of the delegate to the event. The event handler is called whenever the event occurs, unless you remove the delegate. For more information about event-handler delegates, see NIB: Events and Delegates.

The following code example uses the EndEventHandler delegate to register a handler for an asynchronous page.

    Dim bh As New BeginEventHandler(AddressOf Me.BeginGetAsyncData)
    Dim eh As New EndEventHandler(AddressOf Me.EndGetAsyncData)

    Me.AddOnPreRenderCompleteAsync(bh, eh)

    ' Initialize the WebRequest object.

    Label3.Text = "EndGetAsyncData: Thread #" & System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.GetHashCode()

    Dim myResponse As System.Net.WebResponse
    myResponse = Me.myRequest.EndGetResponse(ar)

    Dim reader As New System.IO.StreamReader(myResponse.GetResponseStream())
    result.Text = reader.ReadToEnd()
  End Sub
