Connect Method

Connects to the specified host.

Syntax

websocketclient.connect(URL, [callback])

Callback

The 'callback' parameter specifies a function which will be called when the operation completes (or an error is encountered). If the 'callback' parameter is not specified, then the method will block and will not return until the operation completes (or an error is encountered).

The callback for this method is defined as:

function(err){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'err' has 2 properties which hold detailed information:

err.code
err.message

Remarks

The Connect method will establish a WebSocket connection to the host and port specified in the URL parameter. The URL must be specified in the format "ws://host:[port]/[URI]" for plain-text connections or "wss://host:[port]/[URI]" for SSL enabled connections.
