The Broadcast field is equivalent to 255.255.255.255 in dotted-quad notation.

The following example prints the Broadcast address to the console.

void PrintBroadcastAddress()
{
   // Get the IP Broadcast address and convert it to string.
   String^ IpAddressString = IPAddress::Broadcast->ToString();
   Console::WriteLine( "\nBroadcast IP address : {0}", IpAddressString );
}

public void PrintBroadcastAddress()
{
    // Get the IP Broadcast address and convert it to string.
    String ipAddressString = IPAddress.Broadcast.ToString();

    Console.WriteLine("Broadcast IP address: {0}", ipAddressString);
} //PrintBroadcastAddress
