NoteNote

It is strongly recommended that you provide the company name, product name, and product version. Providing this information enables the use of Windows Forms features such as Application::UserAppDataPath that make it easier to write applications that comply with the "Certified for Windows" program. For more information, see the "Certified for Windows" topic in the MSDN library at http://msdn.microsoft.com/certification.

The following code example displays information about the application in a Label contained by a Form. This example requires that the CompanyName, ProductName and ProductVersion have been set.


void AboutDialog_Load( Object^ /*sender*/, EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
{
   // Display the application information in the label.
   this->labelVersionInfo->Text = String::Format(  "{0} {1} Version: {2}", this->CompanyName, this->ProductName, this->ProductVersion );
}
