Detailed Description

The NetworkHost component uses the lookup mechanisms provided by the operating system to find the IP address(es) associated with a host name, or the host name associated with an IP address.

This code sample demonstrates usage of the NetworkHost component. Pressing the button created by this sample will display information about a machine or IP address entered into the provided text area.

Property Documentation

[read-only] addresses : List<NetworkAddress>

Returns a list of valid network addresses.

autoLookup : bool

If true, automatically executes the lookup method when the hostname is set.

hostName : string

Returns the name of the host whose IP addresses were looked up.

Method Documentation

lookup(string hostName)

Looks up the IP address or addresses associated with the given host name or vice versa, and returns an ID for the lookup. This is an asynchronous operation. To get the network addresses, use the onAddressesChanged signal.

The hostName parameter

The host name to find associated IP addresses for.
