NetworkChange.NetworkAddressChanged Event

Occurs when the IP address of a network interface changes.

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

Public Shared Event NetworkAddressChanged As NetworkAddressChangedEventHandler

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 example uses a NetworkAddressChangedEventHandler to handle NetworkAddressChanged events and detect when network availability changes.

Public class Example

    Dim Shared online As Boolean = False

    Public Shared Sub Demo(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock)
        ' Initialize the online variable and set a NetworkChange handler

        outputBlock.Text &= "Network is: "
        If online Then
            outputBlock.Text &= "online"
            outputBlock.Text &= "offline"
        End If    

        ' Now start the main work of the application        
    End Sub

    ' Subroutine that gets called when the network changes 
    Private Shared Sub OnNetworkChange (ByVal sender As object, _
       ByVale AS EventArgs)

       If NetworkInterface.GetIsNetworkAvailable() Then
           If Not online Then
              online = True
              ' do what is needed to GoOnline()
           End If
           If online Then
               online = False
               ' do what is needed to GoOffline()
           End If
       End If
    End Sub

    Private Shared Sub SetupNetworkChange()
        ' Get current network availalable and store the 
        ' initial value for online value
        If NetworkInterface.GetIsNetworkAvailable() Then
            online = true
            ' do what is needed to GoOnline()
            online = false
            ' do what is needed to GoOffline()
        End If    

        ' Now add a network change event handler to indicate
        ' network availability 
        AddHandler NetworkChange.NetworkAddressChanged , _
            AddressOf OnNetworkChange
    End Sub

End Class
