Dns.BeginResolve Method

NOTE: This method is now obsolete.

Begins an asynchronous request to resolve a DNS host name or IP address to an IPAddress instance.

Namespace: System.Net
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

[ObsoleteAttribute("BeginResolve is obsoleted for this type, please use BeginGetHostEntry instead. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=14202")] 
public static IAsyncResult BeginResolve (
	string hostName,
	AsyncCallback requestCallback,
	Object stateObject
)
/** @attribute ObsoleteAttribute("BeginResolve is obsoleted for this type, please use BeginGetHostEntry instead. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=14202") */

ObsoleteAttribute("BeginResolve is obsoleted for this type, please use BeginGetHostEntry instead. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=14202") 
public static function BeginResolve (
	hostName : String, 
	requestCallback : AsyncCallback, 
	stateObject : Object
) : IAsyncResult
Not applicable.

Parameters

hostName

The DNS name of the host.

requestCallback

An AsyncCallback delegate that references the method to invoke when the operation is complete.

stateObject

A user-defined object that contains information about the operation. This object is passed to the requestCallback delegate when the operation is complete.

Return Value

An IAsyncResult instance that references the asynchronous request.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

hostName is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

SocketException

The caller does not have permission to access DNS information.

The asynchronous BeginResolve operation must be completed by calling the EndResolve method. Typically, the method is invoked by the requestCallback delegate.

This method does not block until the operation is complete. To block until the operation is complete, use the Resolve method.

For more information about using the asynchronous programming model, see Calling Synchronous Methods Asynchronously.

NoteNote:

This member emits trace information when you enable network tracing in your application. For more information, see Network Tracing.

The following example uses BeginResolve to resolve a DNS host name to an IPAddress.
