TIdUDPBase.Binding Property

Socket handle for the read or write transaction.

property Binding: TIdSocketHandle;

Binding is a read-only TIdSocketHandle property that represents the socket binding used to send and receive datagrams for the UDP component. 

Unlike TCP, UDP does not create a permanent connection to the remote computer. Binding is allocated when Active is set to True, or when methods that read or write to the socket handle are called. 

Binding is also updated when Broadcast iscalled, to ensure that socket options for the socket handle include the proper setting for the Id_SO_BROACAST flag.
