Members

pNext

A pointer to the next DNS_RECORD structure.

pName

A pointer to a string that represents the domain name of the record set. This must be in the string format that corresponds to the function called, such as ANSI, Unicode, or UTF8.

wType

A value that represents the RR DNS Record Type. wType determines the format of Data. For example, if the value of wType is DNS_TYPE_A, the data type of Data is DNS_A_DATA.

wDataLength

The length, in bytes, of Data. For fixed-length data types, this value is the size of the corresponding data type, such as sizeof(DNS_A_DATA). For the non-fixed data types, use one of the following macros to determine the length of the data:

C++
#include <windows.h>

#define DNS_NULL_RECORD_LENGTH(ByteCount) (sizeof(DWORD) + (ByteCount)) #define DNS_WKS_RECORD_LENGTH(ByteCount) (sizeof(DNS_WKS_DATA) + (ByteCount-1)) #define DNS_WINS_RECORD_LENGTH(IpCount) (sizeof(DNS_WINS_DATA) + ((IpCount-1) * sizeof(IP_ADDRESS))) #define DNS_TEXT_RECORD_LENGTH(StringCount) (sizeof(DWORD) + ((StringCount) * sizeof(PCHAR)))

Flags

Flags.DW

A value that contains a bitmap of DNS Record Flags.

Flags.S

A set of flags in the form of a DNS_RECORD_FLAGS structure.

dwTtl

The DNS RR's Time To Live value (TTL), in seconds.

dwReserved

Reserved. Do not use.
