startConnect method

Future<ConnectionTask<Socket>> startConnect (
  1. dynamic host,
  2. int port,
  3. {dynamic sourceAddress}

Like connect, but returns a Future that completes with a ConnectionTask that can be cancelled if the Socket is no longer needed.


static Future<ConnectionTask<Socket>> startConnect(host, int port,
    {sourceAddress}) {
  final IOOverrides overrides = IOOverrides.current;
  if (overrides == null) {
    return Socket._startConnect(host, port, sourceAddress: sourceAddress);
  return overrides.socketStartConnect(host, port,
      sourceAddress: sourceAddress);
