Socket 3.1 Yes Yes No No Yes

MBS( "Socket.SetErrorHandler"; SocketID; FileName; ScriptName )

Parameters

Parameter Description Example value
SocketID The socket ID received by Socket.Connect function. $sock
FileName The name of the FileMaker File that contains the script "MyDatabase.fp7"
ScriptName The name of the script to run "SocketError"

Result

Returns OK or error message.

Description

Sets the error handler for this socket.
If the socket has an error, this script is called and you can react and close the socket.

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.

Examples

Create TCP Socket listening on a port:

Set Variable [$$sock; Value:MBS("Socket.NewTCPSocket")]
If [MBS("IsError")]
    Show Custom Dialog ["Failed to create Socket"; $$sock]
    Exit Script []
End If
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("Socket.SetNewConnectionHandler"; $$sock; Get(FileName); "NewConnection")]
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("Socket.SetErrorHandler"; $$sock; Get(FileName); "SocketError")]
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("Socket.Listen"; $$sock; TCP Receiver::ListenPort)]
If [MBS("IsError")]
    Show Custom Dialog ["Failed to create Socket"; $$sock]
    Exit Script []
End If
