Dbmlsync API for .NET

This section describes the methods in the .NET implementation of the DbmlsyncClient class.

The sample below shows a typical application using the .NET version of the Dbmlsync API to perform a synchronization to receive output events. The sample omits error handling for clarity. It is always good indent practice to check the return value from each API call.

Dbmlsync .Net sample
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using iAnywhere.MobiLink.Client;

namespace ConsoleApplication6
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            DbmlsyncClient cli1;
            DBSC_StartType st1;
            DBSC_Event ev1;
            UInt32 syncHdl;

            cli1 = DbmlsyncClient.InstantiateClient();

            // Setting the "server path" is usually required on Windows
            // Mobile/CE. In other environments the server path is usually 
            // not required unless you SA install is not in your path or
            // you have multiple versions of the product installed
            cli1.SetProperty("server path", "d:\\sybase\\asa1100r\\bin32");

             "-c eng=cons;dbn=rem1;uid=dba;pwd=sql -ve+ -ot c:\\dbsync1.txt", 
             5000, out st1);
            cli1.Connect(null, 3426, "dba", "sql");
            syncHdl = cli1.Sync("sp1", "");
            while (cli1.GetEvent(out ev1, 5000) 
                      == DBSC_GetEventRet.DBSC_GETEVENT_OK)
                if (ev1.hdl == syncHdl)
                    Console.WriteLine("Event Type : {0}", ev1.type);
                    if (ev1.type == DBSC_EventType.DBSC_EVENTTYPE_INFO_MSG)
                        Console.WriteLine("Info : {0}", ev1.str1);
                    if (ev1.type == DBSC_EventType.DBSC_EVENTTYPE_SYNC_DONE)
