EnumBuilder.Assembly Property

Retrieves the dynamic assembly that contains this enum definition.

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

public override Assembly Assembly { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Reflection.Assembly
Read-only. The dynamic assembly that contains this enum definition.

Implements

_Type.Assembly

The following code sample demonstrates the use of the Assembly property to reference the parent assembly of the current EnumBuilder.

using System.Reflection.Emit;

public class MyEnumBuilderSample
{
   static AssemblyBuilder myAssemblyBuilder;

   {
      try
      {
         CreateCallee(Thread.GetDomain(), AssemblyBuilderAccess.Save);
         Type[] myTypeArray = myModuleBuilder.GetTypes();
         foreach(Type myType in myTypeArray)
         {
            Console.WriteLine("Enum Builder defined in the module builder is: " 
               + myType.Name);
         }

         Console.WriteLine("Properties of EnumBuilder : ");
         Console.WriteLine("Enum Assembly is :" +  myEnumBuilder.Assembly.ToString());
         Console.WriteLine("Enum AssemblyQualifiedName is :" +

         Console.WriteLine("Enum Name is :" +  myEnumBuilder.Name.ToString());
         Console.WriteLine("Enum NameSpace is :" +  myEnumBuilder.Namespace);
         myAssemblyBuilder.Save("EmittedAssembly.dll");
      }

      {
         Console.WriteLine("The following is the exception raised: " + e.Message);
      }
   }

   private static void CreateCallee(AppDomain myAppDomain, AssemblyBuilderAccess access)
   {
      // Create a name for the assembly.
      AssemblyName myAssemblyName = new AssemblyName();
      myAssemblyName.Name = "EmittedAssembly";

      // Create the dynamic assembly.

      myModuleBuilder = myAssemblyBuilder.DefineDynamicModule("EmittedModule", 
                                                         "EmittedModule.mod");

      // Create a dynamic Enum.
      myEnumBuilder = myModuleBuilder.DefineEnum("MyNamespace.MyEnum", 
                                 TypeAttributes.Public, typeof(Int32));

      FieldBuilder myFieldBuilder1 = myEnumBuilder.DefineLiteral("FieldOne", 1);
      FieldBuilder myFieldBuilder2 = myEnumBuilder.DefineLiteral("FieldTwo", 2);
