AssemblyName Constructor (String)

Initializes a new instance of the AssemblyName class with the specified display name.

Namespace:  System.Reflection
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public AssemblyName(
	string assemblyName
)

Parameters

assemblyName
Type: System.String
The display name of the assembly, as returned by the FullName property.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

assemblyName is null.

ArgumentException

assemblyName is a zero length string.

FileLoadException

The referenced assembly could not be found, or could not be loaded.

The supplied assemblyName is parsed, and the appropriate fields of the new AssemblyName are initialized with values from the display name. This is the recommended way of parsing display names. Writing your own code to parse display names is not recommended.

The following example creates an instance of AssemblyName from a display name. The individual elements of the display name are output to the console as properties of the AssemblyName object.


using System;
using System.Reflection;

public class AssemblyNameDemo
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      // Create an AssemblyName, specifying the display name, and then
      // print the properties.
      AssemblyName myAssemblyName = 
         new AssemblyName("Example, Version=1.0.0.2001, Culture=en-US, PublicKeyToken=null");
      Console.WriteLine("Name: {0}", myAssemblyName.Name);
      Console.WriteLine("Version: {0}", myAssemblyName.Version);
      Console.WriteLine("CultureInfo: {0}", myAssemblyName.CultureInfo);
      Console.WriteLine("FullName: {0}", myAssemblyName.FullName);
   }
}
/* This code example produces output similar to the following:

Name: Example
Version: 1.0.0.2001
CultureInfo: en-US
FullName: Example, Version=1.0.0.2001, Culture=en-US, PublicKeyToken=null
 */
