DataReceivedEventArgs Class

Provides data for the OutputDataReceived and ErrorDataReceived events.

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

public class DataReceivedEventArgs extends EventArgs

To asynchronously collect the redirected StandardOutput or StandardError stream output of a process, you must create a method that handles the redirected stream output events. The event-handler method is called when the process writes to the redirected stream. The event delegate calls your event handler with an instance of DataReceivedEventArgs. The Data property contains the text line that the process wrote to the redirected stream.

The following code example illustrates how to perform asynchronous read operations on the redirected StandardOutput stream of the sort command. The sort command is a console application that reads and sorts text input.

The example creates an event delegate for the SortOutputHandler event handler and associates it with the OutputDataReceived event. The event handler receives text lines from the redirected StandardOutput stream, formats the text, and writes the text to the screen.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
