function GetIPAddress(name : string) : string;
var wsdata : TWSAData;
    he : PHostEnt;
    ss : pchar;
    ip : TInAddr;
begin
  WSAStartup(MakeWord(1, 1), wsdata);
  he := gethostbyname(pchar(name));
  if he<>nil then
  begin
    ip.S_addr := integer(pointer(he^. h_addr_list^)^);
    ss := inet_ntoa(ip);
    Result := string(ss);
  end;
  WSACleanup();
end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Edit1.Text := GetIPAddress(your_pc's_name);
end;

you could use getcomputername api call to fill the your_pc's_name part..or just type it( the name of your pc) in the code..

"were to put the top part of the code"
anywherein iplementation of your code(above the button click for instance.)


your pc name  = name of your pc ..

use getcomputername() win api call to fill it.

for more points i'd give a complete working unit for any pc..

Here is full unit:
(note to add Winsock in uses section).


unit Unit1;

interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs,
  StdCtrls,Winsock;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    Button1: TButton;
    Edit1: TEdit;
    procedure Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

Function pc_name : string;
var
i : cardinal;
user:string;
begin
i:=255;
setlength(user,i);
getComputername(pchar(user),i);
setlength(user,(i-1));
end;

function GetIPAddress(name : string) : string;
var wsdata : TWSAData;
    he : PHostEnt;
    ss : pchar;
    ip : TInAddr;
begin
  WSAStartup(MakeWord(1, 1), wsdata);
  he := gethostbyname(pchar(name));
  if he<>nil then
  begin
    ip.S_addr := integer(pointer(he^. h_addr_list^)^);
    ss := inet_ntoa(ip);
    Result := string(ss);
  end;
  WSACleanup();
end;
