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"

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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,
