sf::IpAddress doesn't accept string
« on: September 08, 2022, 07:07:45 pm »
I was reading documentation on the networking module, and the example code shows that the sf::IpAddress constructor may take a string as it's argument, however when writing my own code, this doesn't seem to be the case.  I took a look at the header file, and there doesn't seem to be this constructor.  Is this a mistake in the documentation, or on my part?

Not sure what you're talking about, because the IpAddress class certainly has a constructor taking a string: https://www.sfml-dev.org/documentation/2.5.1/classsf_1_1IpAddress.php#a656b7445ab04cabaa7398685bc09c3f7

If you use the latest in development SFML version, then the API has changed indeed to sf::IpAddress::resolve("127.0.0.1");

If i'm using SFML as a submodule would this be the issue?

Not sure what "it" means in that context.

You can use SFML as submodule.
If you fetch the master branch, then you get the latest version, which has a slightly different API, as described.
