DescriptionSets the data available handler for this socket.
When new data arrives, this script is called, so you can call Socket.Read function.
Be aware that script may be called when just a few bytes are in the read buffer. So the data message you wait for may only be available partly. In that case, please read available bytes, check if whole packet/message arrived and if not, store read data for later and wait for next script call.
The script parameter is the ID of the socket. You can associate additional values with Socket.SetTag function to the socket and use them in the script triggered.
With plugin version 6.0 or newer the script name can be a script ID number. In that case the plugin queries the script name for the given script ID. This allows to call scripts by ID and avoid problems if scripts are later renamed.
Set script to be triggered if data is available:
- Network/HTTP Server hosted
- Network/HTTP Server local
- Network/Socket Test/Socket Test
- Network/TCP Send and Receive/TCP Receiver
- Network/TCP Send and Receive persistent connection/TCP Receiver persistent connection
- Network/TCP Send and Receive persistent connection/TCP Sender persistent connection
- Network/UDP/UDP Broadcast
