(DataFlex) Cancel 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.

Procedure Test
    Boolean iSuccess
    Handle hoHttp
    Integer iWaitMaxMs
    String sDownloadUrl
    Variant vTask
    Handle hoTask
    Boolean iWasCanceled
    String sTemp1
    Integer iTemp1

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

    Get Create (RefClass(cComChilkatHttp)) To hoHttp
    If (Not(IsComObjectCreated(hoHttp))) Begin
        Send CreateComObject of hoHttp
    End

    //  Set some timeouts, in seconds:
    Set ComConnectTimeout Of hoHttp To 15
    Set ComReadTimeout Of hoHttp To 15

    //  Wait a max time of 2 seconds for the task.
    //  In this example, it's an unreasonably small amount of time,
    //  which means the task will get cancelled.
    Move 2000 To iWaitMaxMs

    //  We're just going to download for 2 seconds and then cancel.
    //  Substitute your own URL with a large enough file for testing..
    Move "http://download.mono-project.com/archive/4.6.1/windows-installer/mono-4.6.1.5-gtksharp-2.12.38-win32-0.msi" To sDownloadUrl

    //  Wait a maximum of waitMaxMs for the task (i.e. the HTTP download) to complete.
    //  The Wait method returns when the task has been canceled, aborted, or completed, or when the max allotted time has passed.
    Get ComWait Of hoTask iWaitMaxMs To iSuccess

    //  At this point, the download 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.
    Get ComCancel Of hoTask To iWasCanceled
    If (iWasCanceled = True) Begin
        Showln "The HTTP download took too long and was canceled."

        If (iTemp1 = 7) Begin
            //  The task completed, which means the background thread's call to Download completed
            //  with success or failure.  Find out which...
