ScriptEngine Property

Returns a string representing the runtime currently in use.

ReadOnly Public Property ScriptEngine As String

Remarks

The ScriptEngine property returns the string "VB".

You can use ScriptEngine when your application is running as a standalone program, in a script, or in a host application.

Example

The following example uses the ScriptEngine property and related properties to return a string describing the current run-time information:

Function GetRuntimeInfo() As String
   Dim Runtime As String = ""
   Runtime = ScriptEngine & " Version "
   Runtime = Runtime & CStr(ScriptEngineMajorVersion) & "."
   Runtime = Runtime & CStr(ScriptEngineMinorVersion) & "."
   Runtime = Runtime & CStr(ScriptEngineBuildVersion)
   Return Runtime   ' Return the current run-time information.
End Function

Smart Device Developer Notes

This property is not supported.

Requirements

Namespace: Microsoft.VisualBasic

Module: Globals

Assembly: Microsoft Visual Basic .NET Runtime (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll)

Because ScriptEngine is a member of a module, rather than of a class, you do not need to create an object on which to access ScriptEngine.
