Sockets - Handling disconnects/reconnects RRS feed

  • Question


    I have a relatively simpe client/server application which I'm trying to send a signal from the client that it wishes to disconnect.  I've never done this before so if there's a better way to send a "disconnect signal" then please inform me.


    Right now if a user wishes to disconnect they click close and I have my code send the word "Disconnect" which the server looks for and initiates a disconnect procedure when it finds it (or rather thats what's supposed to happen).



    //Server checks for the "disconnect signal" which is simply a string that says "Disconnect".

    if (szData.Contains("Disconnect"))





    theSockId.thisSocket = null;





    txtDataRx.Text = txtDataRx.Text + szData;




    The code allows you to connect and send data to the server, but once you disconnect and reconnect no more data will transmit and no exceptions are thrown.
