Im not sure that i understand the question, but the "DataArrival" sub runs seperatly from anything else (unless you specifically code it not to... in which case things could get messy).  When Winsock detects incoming data, the sub is autocalled and processes any commands written within.

This might help you understand the functions and subs a bit more.  Its a simple 'Terminal' program demo for "Winsock Programming"

Since VB is single threaded and each message call from outside must be go through ONE / SIGNLE message pump. so that all messages from outside must be in queue.


Except you use createthread API which is internal from VB app and not going through the message pump so that that is the only way for VB to work on mutli-threaded. again this does not work to get message from outside.
