Winsock.ocx problems

The supplied winsock ocx with Vb6 has a fault that maybe (I HOPE) can be resolved.

This bug is when i get the control to send a msg to a bunch of users ie winsock1(num).senddata in a loop after someone IE say winsock1(56) sends a messsage. The problem is that sometimes only the sender recieves the message and the others dont get the data.
Why is it so?

Try doing a DoEvent after you send your data...

Glad I could help you!


Basically what is happening is the the SendData request is sent to the winsock OCX but the winsock OCX doesn't send the data until the VB program releases the processor...


Cheers!
