ScriptEngine Property

Returns a string representing the runtime currently in use.

ReadOnly Public Property ScriptEngine As String


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.


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.


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.
