    finding the status of socket


    i made a symbian client.in this client i connects to a server and i write a message.while i am writing a message to the server,if the GPRS connection is lost,how can i know whether the data is writen or not.

    this is the code i am using

    RSocketServ iSocketServ;
    RSocket iSocket;

    void CSocket::ConnectL()
    TInetAddr addr;
    if ( addr.Input( KDefaultServerName ) == KErrNone )
    // server name is already a valid ip address
    User::LeaveIfError( iSocket.Open( iSocketServ,
    KProtocolInetTcp ) );
    // Set up address information
    iAddress.SetPort( KDefaultPortNumber );
    iAddress.SetAddress( addr.Address() );
    // Initiate socket connection
    iSocket.Connect( iAddress, iStatus );
    //writing to server
    iSocket.Write(_L8("some temp"), iStatus );

    how can i know whether the socket is connected or failed while connecting or failed while writing

    can any onw help out in this.

    Thanks and Regards,

    As I understand it, you should implement this as an active object. You can then deal with problems like that in your RunL() function where the socket server will signal disconnection etc.

    iSocket.Write(..., iStatus)... if the network fails during the Write, corresponding RunL for the iStatus is expected to return the error.
