TServerSocket's OnClientDisconnect ?

Why is it that I can't seem to get the OnClientDisconnect of the TServerSocket to report the coorect ActiveConnections?

I am simply creating a ListItem in my ListView for each connection on the OnClientConnect and then removing them in the OnClientDisconnect event - by using a UpdateClients method - see below, however, it doesn't seem to be working for the OnClientDisconnect event. - Any remedy?


procedure TfrmMain.sckMainClientConnect(Sender: TObject;
  Socket: TCustomWinSocket);
begin
 pnlClients.Caption:= IntToStr(sckMain.Socket.ActiveConnections)+' Clients';
 UpdateClients;
end;

procedure TfrmMain.sckMainClientDisconnect(Sender: TObject;
  Socket: TCustomWinSocket);
begin
 pnlClients.Caption:= IntToStr(sckMain.Socket.ActiveConnections-1)+' Clients';
 UpdateClients;
end;

procedure TfrmMain.UpdateClients;
var
 Item: TListItem;
 I: Integer;
begin
 lvwClients.Items.BeginUpdate;
 lvwClients.Clear;
 for I:= 0 to sckMain.Socket.ActiveConnections-1 do
 begin
  Item:= lvwClients.Items.Add;
  Item.Caption:= sckMain.Socket.Connections[I].RemoteHost;
 end;
 lvwClients.Items.EndUpdate;
end;

Perhaps the OnClientDisconnect is called *before* it is actually removed from the ActiveConnections list? I certainly don't have trouble keeping a list of clients, but I add and remove them from my own list, added when ClientConnect and removed on ClientDisconnect.

You could set a flag in your Connect/Disconnect handlers and have a timer running. If the timer triggers and the flag is set, then update the clients list.

procedure TfrmMain.OnTimerTimer(Sender : TObject);
begin
   if UpdateRequired then UpdateClients;
   UpdateRequired := false;
end;

procedure TfrmMain.sckMainClientConnect(Sender: TObject;
 Socket: TCustomWinSocket);
begin
   UpdateRequired := true;
end;

procedure TfrmMain.sckMainClientDisconnect(Sender: TObject;
 Socket: TCustomWinSocket);
begin
   UpdateRequired := true;
end;

procedure TfrmMain.UpdateClients;
var
Item: TListItem;
I: Integer;
begin
lvwClients.Items.BeginUpdate;
lvwClients.Clear;
for I:= 0 to sckMain.Socket.ActiveConnections-1 do
begin
 Item:= lvwClients.Items.Add;
 Item.Caption:= sckMain.Socket.Connections[I].RemoteHost;
end;
lvwClients.Items.EndUpdate;
end;
