Gets the NetBIOS computer name of the local computer.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
The property retrieves the NetBIOS name of the local computer. This is accomplished with a call into the native System Information function GetComputerName. This name is established at system startup, when the system reads it from the registry. If the local computer is a node in a cluster, returns the name of the cluster virtual server.
You can use the method to determine the name of the computer that is displayed to other users on a network.
