IPv6MulticastOption Class

Contains option values for joining an IPv6 multicast group.

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

Public Class IPv6MulticastOption
Dim instance As IPv6MulticastOption

The following example creates an IPv6MulticastOption object.

' Exercise the use of the IPv6MulticastOption.
Console.WriteLine("Instantiate IPv6MulticastOption(IPAddress)")

' Instantiate IPv6MulticastOption using one of the  
' overloaded constructors. 
Dim ipv6MulticastOption As New IPv6MulticastOption(m_GrpAddr)

' Store the IPAdress multicast options. 
Dim group As IPAddress = ipv6MulticastOption.Group
Dim interfaceIndex As Long = ipv6MulticastOption.InterfaceIndex

' Display IPv6MulticastOption properties.
Console.WriteLine(("IPv6MulticastOption.Group: [" + group.ToString() + "]"))
Console.WriteLine(("IPv6MulticastOption.InterfaceIndex: [" + interfaceIndex.ToString() + "]"))
// Exercise the use of the IPv6MulticastOption.
Console::WriteLine(S"Instantiate IPv6MulticastOption(IPAddress)");

// Instantiate IPv6MulticastOption using one of the
// overloaded constructors.
IPv6MulticastOption* ipv6MulticastOption = new IPv6MulticastOption(m_GrpAddr);

// Store the IPAdress multicast options.
IPAddress * group =  ipv6MulticastOption->Group;
__int64 interfaceIndex = ipv6MulticastOption->InterfaceIndex;

// Display IPv6MulticastOption properties.
Console::WriteLine(S"IPv6MulticastOption::Group: [ {0}]", group);
Console::WriteLine(S"IPv6MulticastOption::InterfaceIndex: [ {0}]", __box(interfaceIndex));
