AsyncSelect and windows callback on WinXP

Hi,

  I was wondering how you make a simple server with a callback fonction? Am trying to do so and when I receive
the first callback message it get there at one point and then receive another message and start again even before
the program release itself and wait for another message to be dispatch to it. I'm using asyncselect on my socket stream
and this server accept the first connection but again as I said it is not finish another callback(message) get dispatch to
the window and right at the first procedure that get out of the main callback procedure it freeze there and cannot get beyong that . I am doing test localy for the moment so there is not a ton that try to connect at my server.

I'm running on WinXP and compile with the package of Dev-C++(GCC)

Thank you

The solution is to compleate processing as fast as possible and return from the windows message loop so that
you can receive the next messge(s). If you think the data processing would take longer, then you need to copy
the data into a queue of your own and let a worker thread do the data processing. This way your OnReceive() routine
can return immediately. In any case, you should NOT spend too long inside OnReceive() function.

This is the problem if you user MFC sockets, which are driven by windows messaging.
If possible use plain Win32 sockets. Use WSAEventSelect() instead of AsyncSelect()

I have found my problem to be one that get stick into a infinit loop, got a variable mistaken for another though
It's still strange the Messagebox windows were not displayed in order?? I'll accept you answer like that but tell
me what is the difference between WSAEventSelect and AsyncSelect beside that one is based on event and the
other one the message pump that also require a window or dialog box?
