ConsoleApplicationBase Class

Note: This class is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Provides properties, methods, and events related to the current application.

Namespace: Microsoft.VisualBasic.ApplicationServices
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualBasic (in microsoft.visualbasic.dll)

public class ConsoleApplicationBase : ApplicationBase
public class ConsoleApplicationBase extends ApplicationBase
public class ConsoleApplicationBase extends ApplicationBase

For more detailed information, see the Visual Basic topic My.Application Object.

The properties exposed by the My.Application object return data that is associated only with the current application or DLL. No system-level information can be altered with My.Application.

Some members are available only for Windows Forms or console applications.

This example uses the My.Application.CommandLineArgs property to examine the application's command-line arguments. If an argument is found that starts with /input=, the rest of that argument is displayed.

Private Sub ParseCommandLineArgs()
    Dim inputArgument As String = "/input="
    Dim inputName As String = ""

    For Each s As String In My.Application.CommandLineArgs
        If s.ToLower.StartsWith(inputArgument) Then
            inputName = s.Remove(0, inputArgument.Length)
        End If
    Next

    If inputName = "" Then
        MsgBox("No input name")
    Else
        MsgBox("Input name: " & inputName)
    End If
End Sub

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
