The DNSServiceResolve() function is used to resolve a service name returned by DNSServiceBrowse() to host IP address, port number, and TXT record. The DNSServiceResolve() function returns results asynchronously. A DNSServiceResolve() call to resolve service name can be ended by calling DNSServiceRefDeallocate(). The callback argument points to a function of type DNSServiceResolveReply as listed above. The callback function is invoked on finding a result or when the asynch resolve call fails. The sdRef argument to DNSServiceResolve() points to an uninitialized DNSServiceRef. If the call to DNSServiceResolve() succeeds, sdRef is initialized and kDNSServiceErr_NoError is returned.

The flags argument to DNSServiceResolve() is currently unused and reserved for future use. The interfaceIndex argument indicates the interface on which to resolve the service. If the DNSServiceResolve() call is the result of an earlier DNSServiceBrowse() operation, pass the interfaceIndex to perform a resolve on all interfaces. See the section "Constants for specifying an interface index" in <dns_sd.h> for more details. The name parameter is the service instance name to be resolved, as returned from a DNSServiceBrowse() call. The regtype holds the service type and the domain parameter indicates the domain in which the service instance was found. The context parameter points to a value that is passed to the callback function.

The sdRef argument passed to the callback function is initialized by DNSServiceResolve() call. The flags parameter in the callback function is currently unused and reserved for future use. The errorCode parameter is kDNSServiceErr_NoError on success. Otherwise, it will hold the error defined in <dns_sd.h> and other parameters are undefined when errorCode is nonzero. The fullname parameter in the callback holds the full service domain name in the format <servicename>.<protocol>.<domain>. The full service domain name is escaped to follow standard DNS rules. The hosttarget parameter holds the target hostname of the machine providing the service. The port parameter indicates the port in network byte order on which the service accepts connections. The txtLen and txtRecord parameters hold the length and the TXT record of the service's primary TXT record. The context parameter points to the value that was passed as context to the DNSServiceResolve() call.

The DNSServiceResolve function returns kDNSServiceErr_NoError on success. Otherwise, an error code defined in <dns_sd.h> is returned to indicate an error has occurred. When an error is returned by DNSServiceResolve, the callback function is not invoked and the DNSServiceRef argument is not initialized.
