Good Day Experts!

I have converted a VB6 project to VB 2005 and there was some code conversion I am having trouble with.  

VB6
Dim oDNS
Set oDNS = CreateObject("Emmanuel.SimpleDNSClient.1")
Dim strFoundIPaddress
oDNS.ServerAddresses = "555.555.55.55"
oDNS.Separator = ", "
On Error Resume Next
oDNS.Resolve "Test.com", strFoundIPaddress, "C_IN", "T_A"

Converted 2005
Dim oDNS As Object
oDNS = CreateObject("Emmanuel.SimpleDNSClient.1")
Dim strFoundIPaddress As Object
'UPGRADE_WARNING: Couldn't resolve default property of object
 oDNS.ServerAddresses = "555.555.55.55"
'UPGRADE_WARNING: Couldn't resolve default property of object oDNS.Separator. oDNS.Separator = ", "            
'UPGRADE_WARNING: Couldn't resolve default property of object
On Error Resume Next
oDNS.Resolve.oDNS.Resolve("Test.com", strFoundIPaddress, "C_IN", "T_A")

I have searched the net for assistance but I didn't find anything.

Do you have any suggestions that may help me out?

Thanks,

oDNS.ServerAddresses

Open in new window

will probably be an instance of a class type. Find out what the default property is for that class and change
oDNS.ServerAddresses = "555.555.55.55"

Open in new window

to use that property. So if the default property is "Value", change that line to
oDNS.ServerAddresses.Value = "555.555.55.55"

Open in new window

.

If that works, repeat for the other lines with warnings.

Hello Chris:

I look for the reference you mentioned( instance of a class) in the code but did not find it.  

The above code was just at the top of a subroutine in the VB6 version:

Dim oDNS
Set oDNS = CreateObject("Emmanuel.SimpleDNSClient.1")
Dim strFoundIPaddress
oDNS.ServerAddresses = "555.555.55.55"
oDNS.Separator = ", "
On Error Resume Next
oDNS.Resolve "Test.com", strFoundIPaddress, "C_IN", "T_A"

I was wrong, I found the source code for the component you're using (http://www.codeguru.com/cpp/i-n/internet/dns/article.php/c6173/Simple-DNS-Resolver-v15.htm from http://www.codeguru.com/cpp/i-n/internet/dns/article.php/c6173/Simple-DNS-Resolver-v15.htm - not sure if it's the same version you're using). "ServerAddresses" is just a string property of the SimpleDNSClient class. Does the code actually run?

Good Day

The code runs but it I am not getting the IP Address in the strFoundIPaddress variable.  
I guess I am not really understanding why/what the oDNS.Resolve is trying to resolve.  
Why can't they just put the IP Address in there or is it not known...I don't know.

Thanks,
