Default Binary Socket. When to use DataEvent/ProgressEvent?


I am trying to use Flash to connect to a PHP socket server.

private var FSocket:Socket = new Socket();

FSocket.addEventListener(DataEvent.DATA, SocketOnData);

FSocket.addEventListener(ProgressEvent.SOCKET_DATA, SocketOnResponse);
When should i use DataEvent.DATA? When will DataEvent.DATA being trigger? I know xmlsocket trigger when server response ends with a null char. But it seems for binary socket this event never trigger in my Flash app even if i add a null char at the server response.

ProgressEvent.SOCKET_DATA did trigger in my Flash app but i am worrying that i might not get complete response at the time this event is triggered. Unless i keep process on hold until i receive some kind of end of msg char like null char.

Yup, TCP sockets are like that, they are stream based, it is up to you to decide when you have recived enough data.
