    Hi All,
    Looking for some advice. I have created a small application to push a "text" string to multiple client over multiply TCP connections. All clients will receive the same string at a time interval therefore very little client management is required (no client requests). I have been using a array of sockets and astreams and as a new connection comes in it attaches to the next available socket and astream. Originally I captured what sockets/astreams were being used and only wrote (astream.write) to the connected astream outputstream. As I refined the code I accidentally wrote to all astream outputsstreams in the array regardless of connection state. To my surprise it worked and didn't throw an error. If this is a valid use and if doesn't cause memory leaks or stack problem it can reduce the client management code by heaps.

    In short :
    Can using astream.Write to an unconnected astream object without causing an issue or problem?

    Though you should handle the terminated and error events and remove disconnected AsyncStreams.

    Make sure to check this solution: Custom WebSocket Based Push Framework

    It will most probably work better.

    Thanks Erel
    I have added the Terminated and error events. However as my AsyscStreams are in an array and I would like to use a common event name. Is there anyway to determine which AsysStream generated the event without creating a new class to do it?

    event deceleration something like:- "Sub Astream_error(index as int) " where index it the element ?

    Next time I should look before hitting the keyboard. :)

    ".IndexOf(Sender)" right?

    To use "Sender" must it be a list or will an array work?

    You can just write: Dim astream As AsyncStream = Sender
