Dns.BeginResolve Method

Note: This API 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)

'Declaration
<ObsoleteAttribute("BeginResolve is obsoleted for this type, please use BeginGetHostEntry instead. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=14202")> _
<HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, ExternalThreading := True)> _
Public Shared Function BeginResolve ( _
	hostName As String, _
	requestCallback As AsyncCallback, _
	stateObject As Object _
) As IAsyncResult

Parameters

hostName
Type: System.String
The DNS name of the host.
requestCallback
Type: System.AsyncCallback
An AsyncCallback delegate that references the method to invoke when the operation is complete.
stateObject
Type: System.Object
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

Type: System.IAsyncResult
An IAsyncResult instance that references the asynchronous request.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

hostName is Nothing.

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.

NoteNote

The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: ExternalThreading. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.

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

    Class RequestState
        Public host As IPHostEntry

        Public Sub New()
            host = Nothing

    Public Shared Sub Main()
     Try
        ' Create an instance of the RequestState class.
        Dim myRequestState As New RequestState()

        ' Begin an asynchronous request for information such as the host name, IP addresses, 
        ' or aliases for the specified URI.
        Dim asyncResult As IAsyncResult = CType(Dns.BeginResolve("www.contoso.com", AddressOf RespCallback, myRequestState),IAsyncResult)

        ' Wait until asynchronous call completes.
        While asyncResult.IsCompleted <> True
        End While

        Console.WriteLine(("Host name : " + myRequestState.host.HostName))
        Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "IP address list : ")
        Dim index As Integer
        For index = 0 To myRequestState.host.AddressList.Length - 1

    End Sub 'Main


    Private Shared Sub RespCallback(ar As IAsyncResult)
        Try
            ' Convert the IAsyncResult object to a RequestState object.
            Dim tempRequestState As RequestState = CType(ar.AsyncState, RequestState)

            ' End the asynchronous request.
            tempRequestState.host = Dns.EndResolve(ar)
            Catch e As ArgumentNullException
            Console.WriteLine("ArgumentNullException caught!!!")
            Console.WriteLine(("Source : " + e.Source))

            Console.WriteLine(("Source : " + e.Source))
            Console.WriteLine(("Message : " + e.Message))
        End Try
    End Sub 'RespCallback
