.NET/Link API Version 1.5 USE FRAMES

IMathLink.NextPacket Method 

"Opens" the next packet arriving on the link.

[Visual Basic]
Function NextPacket() As PacketType
PacketType NextPacket();


It is an error to call NextPacket while the current packet has unread data; use NewPacket to discard the current packet first.

Most programmers will use this method rarely, if ever. .NET/Link provides higher-level functions in the IKernelLink interface that hide these low-level details of the packet loop.


Exception Type Condition
MathLinkException On any MathLink error, but typically because you have not finished reading the entire contents of the previous packet.
