    Small MessageBox problem

    How could I display in a messagebox the output of the function gethostbyname("") ?

    Lightbulb Try this...

    First, get the hostname with the function. Make sure that a variable is set like this(Be sure to include stdio.h for sprintf()):

    name=gethostbyname(blah, blah);

    Then, create a char:

    char newName[200];

    sprintf(newName, "%d", name);

    MessageBox(hwnd, newName, "Title", MB_OK | MB_ICONINFORMATION);

    I hope it helps!
