Sending messages to pipes and receiving messages from pipes

Top Previous Next

This modal dialog lets you send a string message to a pipe or receive a message from a pipe. The operation depends on the context from which the dialog is called.

The top panel shows the following information:

Name of the pipe (read-only)

Message item count. You can change the spin edit control for sending a message. Otherwise, the box is read-only.

Time-out for the operation in seconds.

The string grid at the bottom contains the messages. The number of lines depends on the message item count setting in the top panel. Each line corresponds to one message item.

Use the Send or Receive button to perform the pipe operation. It returns with an exception if it cannot be performed within the given time period.

The Close button closes the dialog.
