NetworkChange.NetworkAddressChanged Event

Note: This event is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Occurs when the IP address of a network interface changes.

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

public static event NetworkAddressChangedEventHandler NetworkAddressChanged
/** @event */
public static void add_NetworkAddressChanged (NetworkAddressChangedEventHandler value)

/** @event */
public static void remove_NetworkAddressChanged (NetworkAddressChangedEventHandler value)

JScript supports the use of events, but not the declaration of new ones.

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

using System;
using System.Net;
using System.Net.NetworkInformation;

namespace Examples.Net.AddressChanges
{
    public class NetworkingExample
    {
        public static void Main()
        {
            NetworkChange.NetworkAddressChanged += new 
            NetworkAddressChangedEventHandler(AddressChangedCallback);
            Console.WriteLine("Listening for address changes. Press any key to exit.");
            Console.ReadLine();
        }
        static void AddressChangedCallback(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            
            NetworkInterface[] adapters = NetworkInterface.GetAllNetworkInterfaces();
            foreach(NetworkInterface n in adapters)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("   {0} is {1}", n.Name, n.OperationalStatus);
            }
        }
    }
}
