Blocking Property  

Gets and sets the blocking state of the control.


object.Blocking [= { True | False } ]


Setting the Blocking property determines if control actions complete synchronously or asynchronously. If set to True, then each control action, such as sending or receiving data, will return when the operation has completed or timed-out. If set to False, control actions will return immediately. If the operation would result in the control blocking, such as attempting to read data when none has been written, an error is generated. Events such as OnConnect, OnDisconnect, OnRead and OnWrite are only fired if the connection is non-blocking.
