ApplicationDeployment.IsNetworkDeployed Property

Gets a value indicating whether the current application is a ClickOnce application.

Namespace:  System.Deployment.Application
Assembly:  System.Deployment (in System.Deployment.dll)

public static bool IsNetworkDeployed { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if this is a ClickOnce application; otherwise, false.

If you want your application to run both inside and outside of a ClickOnce deployment (for example, if you need to debug your application on the local computer before deploying it), test IsNetworkDeployed before accessing the CurrentDeployment property.

IsNetworkDeployed will return true regardless of whether the application is installed or hosted online, and regardless of whether it was installed from a Web site, file share, or CD-ROM.

The following code example retrieves CurrentDeployment by using IsNetworkDeployed first to ensure that the reference is not null.


private void UpdateApplication()
{
    if (ApplicationDeployment.IsNetworkDeployed)
    {
        ApplicationDeployment ad = ApplicationDeployment.CurrentDeployment;
        ad.CheckForUpdateCompleted += new CheckForUpdateCompletedEventHandler(ad_CheckForUpdateCompleted);
        ad.CheckForUpdateProgressChanged += new DeploymentProgressChangedEventHandler(ad_CheckForUpdateProgressChanged);

        ad.CheckForUpdateAsync();
    }
}

void  ad_CheckForUpdateProgressChanged(object sender, DeploymentProgressChangedEventArgs e)
{
    downloadStatus.Text = String.Format("Downloading: {0}. {1:D}K of {2:D}K downloaded.", GetProgressString(e.State), e.BytesCompleted/1024, e.BytesTotal/1024);   
}

string GetProgressString(DeploymentProgressState state)
{
    if (state == DeploymentProgressState.DownloadingApplicationFiles)
    {
        return "application files";
    } 
    else if (state == DeploymentProgressState.DownloadingApplicationInformation) 
    {
        return "application manifest";
    } 
    else 
    {
        return "deployment manifest";
    }
}

void ad_CheckForUpdateCompleted(object sender, CheckForUpdateCompletedEventArgs e)
{
    if (e.Error != null)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("ERROR: Could not retrieve new version of the application. Reason: \n" + e.Error.Message + "\nPlease report this error to the system administrator.");
        return;
    }
    else if (e.Cancelled == true)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("The update was cancelled.");
    }

    // Ask the user if they would like to update the application now.
    if (e.UpdateAvailable)
    {
        sizeOfUpdate = e.UpdateSizeBytes;

        if (!e.IsUpdateRequired)
        {
            DialogResult dr = MessageBox.Show("An update is available. Would you like to update the application now?\n\nEstimated Download Time: ", "Update Available", MessageBoxButtons.OKCancel);
            if (DialogResult.OK == dr)
            {
                BeginUpdate();
            }
        }
        else
        {
            MessageBox.Show("A mandatory update is available for your application. We will install the update now, after which we will save all of your in-progress data and restart your application.");
            BeginUpdate();
        }
    }
}
