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

Public Shared ReadOnly Property CurrentDomain As AppDomain
Dim value As AppDomain 

value = AppDomain.CurrentDomain

Property Value

Type: System.AppDomain
The current application domain.

The following code example creates a new application domain, using evidence from the current application domain. The CurrentDomain property is used to obtain an AppDomain object that represents the current application domain, and the evidence is obtained using the Evidence property. The FriendlyName property provides the name of the current application domain, which is then displayed at the command line.

Class ADSetupInformation

    Shared Sub Main()

        Dim root As AppDomain = AppDomain.CurrentDomain

        Dim setup As New AppDomainSetup()
        setup.ApplicationBase = _
            root.SetupInformation.ApplicationBase & "MyAppSubfolder\" 

        Dim domain As AppDomain = AppDomain.CreateDomain("MyDomain", Nothing, setup)

        Console.WriteLine("Application base of {0}:" & vbCrLf & vbTab & "{1}", _
            root.FriendlyName, root.SetupInformation.ApplicationBase)
        Console.WriteLine("Application base of {0}:" & vbCrLf & vbTab & "{1}", _
            domain.FriendlyName, domain.SetupInformation.ApplicationBase)

    End Sub 
End Class 

' This example produces output similar to the following: 

'Application base of MyApp.exe: 
'        C:\Program Files\MyApp\ 
'Application base of MyDomain: 
'        C:\Program Files\MyApp\MyAppSubfolder\
