Hello... I have Wisock report the IP address of the computer to Label1.caption on a timer event.
If the IP address changes (for instance from 127.0.0.1, which is what it is when i am not connected to the internet
to 192.168.0.102, which is what it is when I am connected to the network)... The Wisock component still reports my
address as 127.0.0.1....what is wrong??? here is my code:


Public Sub Timer1_Timer()

Label1.Caption = Winsock1.LocalIP

End Sub

try making it a control array with an index of 0 and doing it like this:

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()
Load Winsock1(1)
Label1.Caption = Winsock1(1).LocalIP
Unload Winsock1(1)
End Sub

oh.. and the reason this works is because winsock gets ur ip when it is loaded, so without it, when u open ur program it gets the ip and stores it... but when u load a new one, it gets a new ip each time it is loaded...
