Asynchronous socket error...

this is what happens if i close the cleint without calling Close ( ) of the client socket... this will bring up a nasty popup in the server which will cause the server to stop working!!!

I NEED TO GET RID of the stupid window, i can write my own error handlers that are much better and dont hang the program (setting the onclienterror does not work)

1/ For TServerSocket

     Set the ErrorCode parameter to 0 if the OnClientError event
handler successfully deals with the error condition to prevent
an ESocketError from being thrown.

        void __fastcall TForm1::ServerSocket1ClientError(TObject *Sender,
             TCustomWinSocket *Socket, TErrorEvent ErrorEvent, int &ErrorCode)
             if( ErrorCode )
                    // process ...
                    // .....
                    ErrorCode = 0; //  to prevent an ESocketError from being thrown

2/ For TClientSocket

      Write an OnError event handler to respond to errors that arise
with the socket connection. Set the ErrorCode parameter to 0 if the
OnError event handler successfully deals with the error condition,
to prevent an ESocketError from being thrown.

       void __fastcall TForm1::ClientSocket1Error(TObject *Sender,
             TCustomWinSocket *Socket, TErrorEvent ErrorEvent, int &ErrorCode)
              if( ErrorCode )
                     // process ....
                     // ......

                     ErrorCode = 0; //  to prevent an ESocketError from being thrown
