NetworkChange::NetworkAddressChanged Event

Occurs when the IP address of a network interface changes.

Namespace:  System.Net.NetworkInformation
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
public:
static   event NetworkAddressChangedEventHandler^ NetworkAddressChanged {
	void add (NetworkAddressChangedEventHandler^ value);
	void remove (NetworkAddressChangedEventHandler^ value);
}

The NetworkChange class raises NetworkAddressChanged events when the address of a network interface, also called a network card or adapter, changes.

To have a NetworkChange object call an event-handling method when a NetworkAddressChanged event occurs, you must associate the method with a NetworkAddressChangedEventHandler delegate, and add this delegate to this event.

The NetworkAddressChanged event is supported on Windows 2000 and later.

The following code example listens for address changes and displays the status of network interfaces when a NetworkAddressChanged event occurs.

#using <System.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Net;
using namespace System::Net::NetworkInformation;
void AddressChangedCallback( Object^ /*sender*/, EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
{
   array<NetworkInterface^>^adapters = NetworkInterface::GetAllNetworkInterfaces();
   System::Collections::IEnumerator^ myEnum = adapters->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
   {
      NetworkInterface^ n = safe_cast<NetworkInterface^>(myEnum->Current);
      Console::WriteLine( "   {0} is {1}", n->Name, n->OperationalStatus );
   }
}

int main()
{
   NetworkChange::NetworkAddressChanged += gcnew NetworkAddressChangedEventHandler( AddressChangedCallback );
   Console::WriteLine( "Listening for address changes. Press any key to exit." );
   Console::ReadLine();
}
