public int EndSend(
	IAsyncResult asyncResult


Type: System.IAsyncResult

An IAsyncResult object returned by a call to BeginSend.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32

If successful, the number of bytes sent to the UdpClient.

Exception Condition

asyncResult is null.


asyncResult was not returned by a call to the BeginSend method.


EndSend was previously called for the asynchronous read.


An error occurred when attempting to access the underlying socket. See the Remarks section for more information.


The underlying Socket has been closed.

This method blocks until the operation is complete.

To perform this operation synchronously, use the Send method.

The following code example uses BeginSend to complete an asynchronous send of a server request.

public static bool messageSent = false;

public static void SendCallback(IAsyncResult ar)
  UdpClient u = (UdpClient)ar.AsyncState;

  Console.WriteLine("number of bytes sent: {0}", u.EndSend(ar));
  messageSent = true;
