(Xojo Plugin) Cancel HTTP Get Async Task if not Completed after a Max Time

Demonstrates how to wait a maximum amount of time for an asynchronous task to completed. If not completed in the allotted amount of time, the task is cancelled.

Xojo Plugin for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and ARM, ARM64

// This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
// See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

Dim success As Boolean
Dim http As New Chilkat.Http

// Set some timeouts, in seconds:
http.ConnectTimeout = 15
// ReadTimeout specifies the max number of seconds that must elapse when no additional data is received before
// timing out.  For example, if a server sends a 300 byte response at the rate of 1 byte per second, then
// ReadTimeout would never cause a timeout because there is never a 15 second interval when nothing arrives.
http.ReadTimeout = 15

Dim url As String
url = "https://your-url.com/something"
Dim task As Chilkat.Task
task = http.QuickGetStrAsync(url)
success = task.Run()

// Wait a maximum of waitMaxMs for the task (i.e. the HTTP GET) to complete.
// The Wait method returns when the task has been canceled, aborted, or completed, or when the max allotted time has passed.
Dim waitMaxMs As Int32
waitMaxMs = 20000
success = task.Wait(waitMaxMs)

// At this point, the GET may or may not have completed.  
// Rather than checking the Task status, we can call task.Cancel because
// if the Task is no longer running (because it already completed, was canceled or aborted), then the 
// call to Cancel is a NO-OP (meaning it does nothing and the Task's status is unaffected).
// Also, task.Cancel returns True if the task was in the "queued" or "running" state and was canceled or aborted. 
// The method returns False if the task has any other status.
Dim wasCanceled As Boolean
wasCanceled = task.Cancel()
If (wasCanceled = True) Then
    System.DebugLog("The HTTP GET took too long and was canceled.")
Else
    // Find out what happened.
    If (task.StatusInt = 7) Then
        // The task completed, which means the background thread's call to QuickGetStr completed
        // with success or failure.  Find out which...
        If (task.TaskSuccess = True) Then
            // Get the string response for the call to QuickGetStr (which happened in Chilkat's background thread).
            Dim responseStr As String
            responseStr = task.GetResultString()
            System.DebugLog(responseStr)
            System.DebugLog("HTTP GET successful!")
        Else
            System.DebugLog("HTTP GET failed prior to waitMaxMs...")
            System.DebugLog(task.ResultErrorText)
        End If

    Else
        // The task must've been canceled or aborted by some other means..
        System.DebugLog("Task did not complete.  Final status: " + task.Status)
    End If

End If
