AppDomain.CurrentDomain Property

Gets the current application domain for the current Thread.

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

public static AppDomain CurrentDomain { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.AppDomain
The current application domain.

The following code example creates a new application domain. The CurrentDomain property is used to obtain an AppDomain object that represents the current application domain. The FriendlyName property provides the name of the current application domain, which is then displayed at the command line.

using System;

class ADSetupInformation
{
    static void Main()
    {
        AppDomain root = AppDomain.CurrentDomain;

        AppDomainSetup setup = new AppDomainSetup();
        setup.ApplicationBase = 
            root.SetupInformation.ApplicationBase + @"MyAppSubfolder\";

        AppDomain domain = AppDomain.CreateDomain("MyDomain", null, setup);

        Console.WriteLine("Application base of {0}:\r\n\t{1}", 
            root.FriendlyName, root.SetupInformation.ApplicationBase);
        Console.WriteLine("Application base of {0}:\r\n\t{1}", 
            domain.FriendlyName, domain.SetupInformation.ApplicationBase);

        AppDomain.Unload(domain);
    }
}

/* This example produces output similar to the following:

Application base of MyApp.exe:
        C:\Program Files\MyApp\
Application base of MyDomain:
        C:\Program Files\MyApp\MyAppSubfolder\
