Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
To get the assembly that contains the method that called the currently executing code, use GetCallingAssembly.
The following example gets the assembly of the currently running code.
Assembly SampleAssembly; // Instantiate a target object. Int32 Integer1 = new Int32(); Type Type1; // Set the Type instance to the target class type. Type1 = Integer1.GetType(); // Instantiate an Assembly class to the assembly housing the Integer type. SampleAssembly = Assembly.GetAssembly(Integer1.GetType()); // Display the name of the assembly currently executing Console.WriteLine("GetExecutingAssembly=" + Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().FullName);
