Assembly.GetCallingAssembly Method

Returns the Assembly of the method that invoked the currently executing method.

[Visual Basic]
Public Shared Function GetCallingAssembly() As Assembly
[C#]
public static Assembly GetCallingAssembly();
[C++]
public: static Assembly* GetCallingAssembly();
[JScript]
public static function GetCallingAssembly() : Assembly;

Return Value

The Assembly object of the method that invoked the currently executing method.

Example

The following example gets the calling assembly of the current method.

[Visual Basic] 
Dim SampleAssembly As [Assembly]
' Instantiate a target object.
Dim Integer1 As New Int32()
Dim Type1 As Type
' 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 that is calling the method.
Console.WriteLine(("GetCallingAssembly=" + [Assembly].GetCallingAssembly().FullName))
        End Sub 'Snippet4

[C#] 
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 that is calling the method.
Console.WriteLine("GetCallingAssembly=" + Assembly.GetCallingAssembly().FullName);

[C++] 
Assembly* SampleAssembly;
// Instantiate a target object.
Int32 Integer1(0);
Type* Type1;
// Set the Type instance to the target class type.
Type1 = __box(Integer1)->GetType();
// Instantiate an Assembly class to the assembly housing the Integer type.  
SampleAssembly = Assembly::GetAssembly(__box(Integer1)->GetType());
// Display the name of the assembly that is calling the method.
Console::WriteLine(S"GetCallingAssembly= {0}", Assembly::GetCallingAssembly()->FullName);

[JScript] 
var SampleAssembly : Assembly;
// Instantiate a target object.
var Integer1 : Int32 = 0;
var Type1 : Type;
// 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 that is calling the method.
Console.WriteLine("GetCallingAssembly=" + Assembly.GetCallingAssembly().FullName);
