Asynchronously returns the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for the specified host.
Assembly: System (in System.dll)
<HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, ExternalThreading := True)> Public Shared Function BeginGetHostAddresses ( hostNameOrAddress As String, requestCallback As AsyncCallback, state As Object ) As IAsyncResult
The host name or IP address to resolve.
An AsyncCallback delegate that references the method to invoke when the operation is complete.
A user-defined object that contains information about the operation. This object is passed to the requestCallback delegate when the operation is complete.
Themethod asynchronously queries a DNS server for the IP addresses that are associated with a host name. If hostNameOrAddress is an IP address, this address is returned without querying the DNS server.
This member emits trace information when you enable network tracing in your application. For more information, see Network Tracing in the .NET Framework.
When an empty string is passed as the host name, this method returns the IPv4 addresses of the local host for all operating systems except Windows Server 2003; for Windows Server 2003, both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses for the local host are returned.
The asynchronous EndGetHostAddresses method. Typically, the method is invoked by the requestCallback delegate.operation must be completed by calling the
This method does not block until the operation is complete. To block until the operation is complete, use the GetHostAddresses method.
