DataSetMessage Event (IEasyUASubscriber)
Example 



OpcLabs.EasyOpcUA Assembly > OpcLabs.EasyOpc.UA.PubSub Namespace > IEasyUASubscriber Interface : DataSetMessage Event
Raised for every OPC UA PubSub dataset message received.
Syntax
'Declaration
 
Event DataSetMessage As EasyUADataSetMessageEventHandler
'Usage
 
Dim instance As IEasyUASubscriber
Dim handler As EasyUADataSetMessageEventHandler
 
AddHandler instance.DataSetMessage, handler
event EasyUADataSetMessageEventHandler DataSetMessage
event EasyUADataSetMessageEventHandler^ DataSetMessage
Event Data

The event handler receives an argument of type EasyUADataSetMessageEventArgs containing data related to this event. The following EasyUADataSetMessageEventArgs properties provide information specific to this event.

PropertyDescription
Holds arguments that were used to subscribe to the dataset.  
Contains the received dataset data.  
Diagnostics information (such as warnings) assembled during the operation. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
Count of diagnostic information elements assembled during the operation. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
Textual summary of diagnostics information, one message per line. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
Gets or sets the error ID of the error. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
Gets or sets a message that describes the current exception. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
The first line of the error message. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
Gets the current exception. Contains null reference when no exception. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
A normalized OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs.Diagnostics collection. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
A normalized OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs.Exception object, or null if there was no error. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)
Contains the resolved dataset subscription descriptor, if available. (Inherited from OpcLabs.EasyOpc.UA.PubSub.OperationModel.EasyUAPubSubMessageEventArgs)
Gets indication whether the operation has succeeded. (Inherited from OpcLabs.BaseLib.OperationModel.OperationEventArgs)

// This example shows how to subscribe to all dataset messages on an OPC-UA PubSub connection with UDP UADP mapping.
//
// In order to produce network messages for this example, run the UADemoPublisher tool. For documentation, see
// http://kb.opclabs.com/UADemoPublisher_Basics . In some cases, you may have to specify the interface name to be used.

Rem This example shows how to subscribe to all dataset messages on an OPC-UA PubSub connection with UDP UADP mapping.
Rem
Rem In order to produce network messages for this example, run the UADemoPublisher tool. For documentation, see
Rem http://kb.opclabs.com/UADemoPublisher_Basics . In some cases, you may have to specify the interface name to be used.

Option Explicit

' Define the PubSub connection we will work with.

' In some cases you may have to set the interface (network adapter) name that needs to be used, similarly to
' the statement below. Your actual interface name may differ, of course.
' ConnectionDescriptor.ResourceAddress.InterfaceName = "Ethernet"

' Instantiate the subscriber object and hook events.

' Unsubscribe operation is asynchronous, messages may still come for a short while.
WScript.Sleep 1*1000

WScript.Echo "Finished."



Sub Subscriber_DataSetMessage(Sender, e)
    ' Display the dataset.
    If e.Succeeded Then
        ' An event with null DataSetData just indicates a successful connection.
        If Not (e.DataSetData Is Nothing) Then
