closing udp connection forcebly RRS feed

  • Question

  • i've a udpclient to receive messages, which runs on a separate thread. when application shutsdown i want this udpclient gets closed and thread exists, here's my code

    function ran using thread

    void startClient()
                 cl = new UdpClient(_currentPort);          
                    while (_isON)
                        IPEndPoint ipe = new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.Any, 0);
                        byte[] data = cl.Receive(ref ipe);

    Code to Close Thread

    private void button2_Click_1(object sender, EventArgs e)
                _isON = false;           

    But this throws an Exception "Thread was being Aborted".

    I think that's the exception thrown by thread.Abort() method.

    How can i supress this exception?

    Regards Kumar Gaurav.

  • Hi Kumar,

    Welcome to the MSDN Forum.

    Based on your description, it seems that your code is in C#, so I moved this thread to C# forum for better support.
