(DataFlex) PC/SC Async Wait for Smart Card Status Change (Inserted, Removed from Reader, etc.)

See more SCard Examples

Demonstrates how to start an asynchronous Chilkat task to wait for a status change, such as for a smart card to be inserted into a reader, or removed from a reader. After starting the background task, the code loops to check on the status of your task.

Note: Instead of writing a loop to wait for the status change, your application might periodically check the task status via a timer event or something similar. The purpose of this example is to show (1) how to start the async task, and (2) how to periodically check the status of the task.

Note: This functionality was introduced in Chilkat v9.5.0.87.
