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

public string FriendlyName { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The friendly name of this application domain.

Implements

_AppDomain.FriendlyName

ExceptionCondition
AppDomainUnloadedException

The operation is attempted on an unloaded application domain.

The friendly name of the default application domain is the file name of the process executable. For example, if the executable used to start the process is "c:\MyAppDirectory\MyAssembly.exe", the friendly name of the default application domain is "MyAssembly.exe".

The following code example uses the FriendlyName property to get the friendly name of the current application domain. For the default application domain, the friendly name is the name of the application's executable file. The code example also displays additional information about the application domain.

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\
