UDPPort Class

Properties   Methods   Events   Configuration Settings   Errors  

The UDPPort class is used to facilitate UDP (datagram) communications. It can act both as a client and a server and communicate with any number of hosts simultaneously, as well as generate and receive broadcast packets.

Syntax

UDPPort

Remarks

The interface of the class is similar to the interface of IPPort, only much simpler. The class is activated/deactivated through the Active property. This property enables or disables sends or receives. The data can be sent in the same way as IPPort, using the Send method and specifying the text to send. This is identical to assigning data to the DataToSend property. The destination is specified using the RemoteHost and RemotePort properties. Inbound data is received through the DataIn event.

If the UseConnection config setting is set to True, then a local association is created with the remote host. Otherwise, the class can receive datagrams (packets) from any host, and send datagrams to any host. Packets can be broadcast on the local net by setting the destination (RemoteHost) to 255.255.255.255.

The operation of the class is almost completely asynchronous. All calls, except the ones that deal with domain name resolution, operate through Windows messages (no blocking calls). The gain in performance is considerable when compared to using blocking calls.

AcceptData Property (UDPPort Class)

Enables or disables data reception (the DataIn event).

Syntax

bool GetAcceptData();
int SetAcceptData(bool bAcceptData);

Default Value

true

Remarks

This property enables or disables data reception (the DataIn event). Setting this property to False, temporarily disables data reception (and the DataIn event). Setting this property to True, re-enables data reception.

Note: It is recommended to use the PauseData or ProcessData method instead of setting this property.

This property is not available at design time.

Data Type

Boolean

Active Property (UDPPort Class)

Enables or disables sending and receiving of data.

Syntax

bool GetActive();
int SetActive(bool bActive);

Default Value

false

Remarks

Setting the Active property to True makes the class create a communication endpoint (socket) which can be used for sending and receiving UDP datagrams. Setting it to False destroys the socket and disables data communications.

If UseConnection is set to True, then a local association (connection) to the remote host and port is also created.

Note: It is recommended to use the Activate or Deactivate method instead of setting this property.

This property is not available at design time.

Data Type

Boolean

DontRoute Property (UDPPort Class)

If set to True, it forces the socket to send data directly to interface (no routing).

Syntax

bool GetDontRoute();
int SetDontRoute(bool bDontRoute);

Default Value

false

Remarks

If this property is set to True, it forces the socket to send data directly to interface (no routing). Normally IP sockets send packets of data through routers and gateways until they reach the final destination. If this property is set to True, then data will be delivered on the local subnet only.

This property is not available at design time.

Data Type

Boolean

LocalHost Property (UDPPort Class)

The name of the local host or user-assigned IP interface through which connections are initiated or accepted.

Syntax

QString GetLocalHost();
int SetLocalHost(QString qsLocalHost);

Default Value

""

Remarks

The LocalHost property contains the name of the local host as obtained by the gethostname() system call, or if the user has assigned an IP address, the value of that address.

In multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface) setting LocalHost to the value of an interface will make the class initiate connections (or accept in the case of server classs) only through that interface.

If the class is connected, the LocalHost property shows the IP address of the interface through which the connection is made in internet dotted format (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd). In most cases, this is the address of the local host, except for multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface).

NOTE: LocalHost is not persistent. You must always set it in code, and never in the property window.

Data Type

String

LocalPort Property (UDPPort Class)

The UDP port in the local host where UDPPort binds.

Syntax

int GetLocalPort();
int SetLocalPort(int iLocalPort);

Default Value

0

Remarks

The LocalPort property must be set before UDPPort is activated (Active is set to True). It instructs the class to bind to a specific port (or communication endpoint) in the local machine.

Setting it to 0 (default) enables the TCP/IP stack to choose a port at random. The chosen port will be shown by the LocalPort property after the connection is established.

LocalPort cannot be changed once the class is Active. Any attempt to set the LocalPort property when the class is Active will generate an error.

The LocalPort property is useful when trying to connect to services that require a trusted port in the client side.

Data Type

Integer

RemoteHost Property (UDPPort Class)

The address of the remote host. Domain names are resolved to IP addresses.

Syntax

QString GetRemoteHost();
int SetRemoteHost(QString qsRemoteHost);

Default Value

""

Remarks

The RemoteHost property specifies the IP address (IP number in dotted internet format) or Domain Name of the remote host.

If RemoteHost is set to 255.255.255.255, the class broadcasts data on the local subnet.

If the RemoteHost property is set to a Domain Name, a DNS request is initiated and upon successful termination of the request, the RemoteHost property is set to the corresponding address. If the search is not successful, an error is returned.

If UseConnection is set to True, the RemoteHost must be set before the class is activated (Active is set to True).

Data Type

String

RemotePort Property (UDPPort Class)

The UDP port in the remote host.

Syntax

int GetRemotePort();
int SetRemotePort(int iRemotePort);

Default Value

0

Remarks

The RemotePort is the UDP port on the RemoteHost to send UDP datagrams to.

A valid port number (a value between 1 and 65535) is required.

If UseConnection is set to True, the RemotePort must be set before the class is activated (Active is set to True).

Data Type

Integer

TimeToLive Property (UDPPort Class)

The maximum number of subnets that a datagram can traverse.

Syntax

int GetTimeToLive();
int SetTimeToLive(int iTimeToLive);

Default Value

0

Remarks

The default value for this property is 0, which tells the class to use the default TTL value of the underlying TCP/IP subsystem. Depending on the application, you can specify a value between 1 and 255.

Data Type

Integer

Activate Method (UDPPort Class)

Enables sending and receiving of data.

Syntax

int Activate();

Remarks

This method enables sending and receiving of data. When called the class will create a communication endpoint (socket) which can be used for sending and receiving UDP messages. This method must be called before using the class to send and receive data.

If the UseConnection configuration setting is set to true, then a local association (connection) to the remote host is also created.

Error Handling

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

Config Method (UDPPort Class)

Sets or retrieves a configuration setting.

Syntax

QString Config(const QString& qsConfigurationString);

Remarks

Config is a generic method available in every class. It is used to set and retrieve configuration settings for the class.

These settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the class, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

To set a configuration setting named PROPERTY, you must call Config("PROPERTY=VALUE"), where VALUE is the value of the setting expressed as a string. For boolean values, use the strings "True", "False", "0", "1", "Yes", or "No" (case does not matter).

To read (query) the value of a configuration setting, you must call Config("PROPERTY"). The value will be returned as a string.

Error Handling

This method returns a String value; after it returns, call the GetLastErrorCode() method to obtain its result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message.

Deactivate Method (UDPPort Class)

Disables sending and receive of data.

Syntax

int Deactivate();

Remarks

This method disables sending and receiving of data. When called the class will destroy the existing socket and disable data communications.

Error Handling

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

DoEvents Method (UDPPort Class)

Processes events from the internal message queue.

Syntax

int DoEvents();

Remarks

When DoEvents is called, the class processes any available events. If no events are available, it waits for a preset period of time, and then returns.

Error Handling

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

PauseData Method (UDPPort Class)

Pauses data reception.

Syntax

int PauseData();

Remarks

This method pauses data reception when called. While data reception is paused the DataIn event will not fire. Call ProcessData to re-enable data reception.

Error Handling

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

ProcessData Method (UDPPort Class)

Re-enables data reception after a call to PauseData .

Syntax

int ProcessData();

Remarks

This method re-enables data reception after a previous call to PauseData. When PauseData is called the DataIn event will not fire. To re-enable data reception and allow DataIn to fire call this method.

Note: This method is only used after previously calling PauseData. It does not need to be called to process incoming data by default.

Error Handling

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

Reset Method (UDPPort Class)

Reset the class.

Syntax

int Reset();

Remarks

This method will reset the class's properties to their default values.

Error Handling

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

ResolveRemoteHost Method (UDPPort Class)

Resolves the hostname in RemoteHost to an IP address.

Syntax

int ResolveRemoteHost();

Remarks

This method resolves the hostname specified by RemoteHost to an IP address. The resolved value is available in the RemoteHost property after this method returns.

In most cases calling this method is not necessary, the class will resolve the hostname automatically when necessary. If DelayHostResolution is true this method may be called to manually resolve RemoteHost if desired.

Error Handling

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

Send Method (UDPPort Class)

Send data to the remote host.

Syntax

int Send(const QByteArray& qbaText);

Remarks

Calling this method is equivalent to setting the DataToSend property to Text.

Example (Send Data)

UDPPortControl.LocalPort = 8765 UDPPortControl.RemotePort = 8765 UDPPortControl.RemoteHost = "HostNameOrIPAddress" UDPPortControl.Active = True UDPPortControl.Send("Hello!")

Error Handling

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

SendBytes Method (UDPPort Class)

Send data to the remote host.

Syntax

int SendBytes(const QByteArray& qbaData);

Remarks

Calling this method is equivalent to call SendBytes/SendText method.

Example (Send Data)

UDPPortControl.LocalPort = 8765 UDPPortControl.RemotePort = 8765 UDPPortControl.RemoteHost = "HostNameOrIPAddress" UDPPortControl.Active = True UDPPortControl.Send("Hello!")

Error Handling

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

SendText Method (UDPPort Class)

Send data to the remote host.

Syntax

int SendText(const QString& qsText);

Remarks

Calling this method is equivalent to call SendBytes/SendText method.

Example (Send Data)

UDPPortControl.LocalPort = 8765 UDPPortControl.RemotePort = 8765 UDPPortControl.RemoteHost = "HostNameOrIPAddress" UDPPortControl.Active = True UDPPortControl.Send("Hello!")

Error Handling

This method returns a result code; 0 indicates success, while a non-zero error code indicates that this method encountered an error during its execution. If an error occurs, the GetLastError() method can be called to retrieve the associated error message. (Note: This method's result code can also be obtained by calling the GetLastErrorCode() method after it returns.)

DataIn Event (UDPPort Class)

Fired when data is received.

Syntax

class UDPPortDataInEventParams {
public:
  const QByteArray &Datagram();

  const QString &SourceAddress();

  int SourcePort();

  int EventRetVal();
  void SetEventRetVal(int iRetVal);
};
// To handle, connect one or more slots to this signal. void DataIn(UDPPortDataInEventParams *e);
// Or, subclass UDPPort and override this emitter function. virtual int FireDataIn(UDPPortDataInEventParams *e) {...}

Remarks

The DataIn event is fired every time a new datagram is received.

Datagram contains the packet as sent by the remote host.

SourceAddress contains the IP number (Internet address) of the remote host, and SourcePort contains the port from which the packet originated.

Note that events are not re-entrant. Performing time consuming operations within this event will prevent it from firing again in a timely manner and may impact overall performance.

Error Event (UDPPort Class)

Information about errors during data delivery.

Syntax

class UDPPortErrorEventParams {
public:
  int ErrorCode();

  const QString &Description();

  int EventRetVal();
  void SetEventRetVal(int iRetVal);
};
// To handle, connect one or more slots to this signal. void Error(UDPPortErrorEventParams *e);
// Or, subclass UDPPort and override this emitter function. virtual int FireError(UDPPortErrorEventParams *e) {...}

Remarks

The Error event is fired in case of exceptional conditions during message processing. Normally the class fails with an error.

ErrorCode contains an error code and Description contains a textual description of the error. For a list of valid error codes and their descriptions, please refer to the Error Codes section.

ReadyToSend Event (UDPPort Class)

Fired when the class is ready to send data.

Syntax

class UDPPortReadyToSendEventParams {
public:
  int EventRetVal();
  void SetEventRetVal(int iRetVal);
};
// To handle, connect one or more slots to this signal. void ReadyToSend(UDPPortReadyToSendEventParams *e);
// Or, subclass UDPPort and override this emitter function. virtual int FireReadyToSend(UDPPortReadyToSendEventParams *e) {...}

Remarks

The ReadyToSend event indicates that the underlying TCP/IP subsystem is ready to accept data after a failed DataToSend.

Configuration Settings (UDPPort Class)

The class accepts one or more of the following configuration settings. Configuration settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the class, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

UDPPort Configuration Settings

CaptureIPPacketInfo:   Used to capture the packet information.

If this is set to true, the component will capture the IP packet information.

The default value for this setting is False.

Note: This setting is only available in Windows.

DelayHostResolution:   Whether the hostname is resolved when RemoteHost is set.

This setting specifies whether a hostname is resolved immediately when RemoteHost is set. If true the class will resolve the hostname and the IP address will be present in the RemoteHost property. If false, the hostname is not resolved until needed by the component when a method to connect or send data is called. If desired, ResolveRemoteHost may called to manually resolve the value in RemoteHost at any time.

The default value is false.

DestinationAddress:   Used to get the destination address from the packet information.

If CaptureIPPacketInfo is set to true, then this will be populated with the packet's destination address when a packet is received. This information will be accessible in the DataIn event.

Note: This setting is only available in Windows.

DontFragment:   Used to set the Don't Fragment flag of outgoing packets.

When set to True, packets sent by the class will have the Don't Fragment flag set. The default value is False.

LocalHost:   The name of the local host through which connections are initiated or accepted.

The LocalHost setting contains the name of the local host as obtained by the gethostname() system call, or if the user has assigned an IP address, the value of that address.

In multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface) setting LocalHost to the value of an interface will make the class initiate connections (or accept in the case of server classs) only through that interface.

If the class is connected, the LocalHost setting shows the IP address of the interface through which the connection is made in internet dotted format (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd). In most cases, this is the address of the local host, except for multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface).

LocalPort:   The port in the local host where the class binds.

This must be set before a connection is attempted. It instructs the class to bind to a specific port (or communication endpoint) in the local machine.

Setting this to 0 (default) enables the system to choose a port at random. The chosen port will be shown by LocalPort after the connection is established.

LocalPort cannot be changed once a connection is made. Any attempt to set this when a connection is active will generate an error.

This; setting is useful when trying to connect to services that require a trusted port in the client side. An example is the remote shell (rsh) service in UNIX systems.

MaxPacketSize:   The maximum length of the packets that can be received.

This setting specifies the maximum size of the datagrams that the class will accept without truncation.

QOSDSCPValue:   Used to specify an arbitrary QOS/DSCP setting (optional).

UseConnection must be True to use this setting. This option allows you to specify an arbitrary DSCP value between 0 and 63. The default is 0. When set to the default value the component will not set a DSCP value.

Note: This setting uses the qWAVE API is only available on Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, and later.

QOSTrafficType:   Used to specify QOS/DSCP settings (optional).

UseConnection must be True to use this setting. You may specify either the text or integer values: BestEffort (0), Background (1), ExcellentEffort (2), AudioVideo (3), Voice (4), and Control (5).

Note: This setting uses the qWAVE API which is only available on Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 or above.

Note: QOSTrafficType must be set before setting Active to true.

ShareLocalPort:   If set to True, allows more than one instance of the class to be active on the same local port.

This option must be set before the class is activated through the Active property or it will have no effect.

The default value for this setting is False.

UseConnection:   Determines whether to use a connected socket.

UseConnection specifies whether the class should use a connected socket or not. The connection is defined as an association in between the local address/port and the remote address/port. As such, this is not a connection in the traditional TCP sense. What it means is only that the class will send and receive data only to and from the specified destination.

The default value for this setting is False.

UseIPv6:   Whether or not to use IPv6.

By default, the component expects an IPv4 address for local and remote host properties, and will create an IPv4 socket. To use IPv6 instead, set this to True.

Socket Configuration Settings

AbsoluteTimeout:   Determines whether timeouts are inactivity timeouts or absolute timeouts.

If AbsoluteTimeout is set to True, any method which does not complete within Timeout seconds will be aborted. By default, AbsoluteTimeout is False, and the timeout is an inactivity timeout.

Note: This option is not valid for UDP ports.

FirewallData:   Used to send extra data to the firewall.

When the firewall is a tunneling proxy, use this property to send custom (additional) headers to the firewall (e.g. headers for custom authentication schemes).

InBufferSize:   The size in bytes of the incoming queue of the socket.

This is the size of an internal queue in the TCP/IP stack. You can increase or decrease its size depending on the amount of data that you will be receiving. Increasing the value of the InBufferSize setting can provide significant improvements in performance in some cases.

Some TCP/IP implementations do not support variable buffer sizes. If that is the case, when the class is activated the InBufferSize reverts to its defined size. The same happens if you attempt to make it too large or too small.

OutBufferSize:   The size in bytes of the outgoing queue of the socket.

This is the size of an internal queue in the TCP/IP stack. You can increase or decrease its size depending on the amount of data that you will be sending. Increasing the value of the OutBufferSize setting can provide significant improvements in performance in some cases.

Some TCP/IP implementations do not support variable buffer sizes. If that is the case, when the class is activated the OutBufferSize reverts to its defined size. The same happens if you attempt to make it too large or too small.

Base Configuration Settings

BuildInfo:   Information about the product's build.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the product's build.

CodePage:   The system code page used for Unicode to Multibyte translations.

The default code page is Unicode UTF-8 (65001).

LicenseInfo:   Information about the current license.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the license this instance of a class is using. It will return the following information:

  • Product: The product the license is for.
  • Product Key: The key the license was generated from.
  • License Source: Where the license was found (e.g., RuntimeLicense, License File).
  • License Type: The type of license installed (e.g., Royalty Free, Single Server).
UseInternalSecurityAPI:   Tells the class whether or not to use the system security libraries or an internal implementation.

By default the class will use the system security libraries to perform cryptographic functions. Setting this to True tells the class to use the internal implementation instead of using the system's security API.
