The following are two examples of CodeBase property values for an application named ActivationContext:

  • http://testserver/ActivationContext/ActivationContext.application

  • file://C:/UserFiles/UserName/SolutionName/ActivationContext/publish/ActivationContext.application.

The following code example demonstrates the use of an ApplicationIdentity object to obtain the value of the CodeBase property for a manifest-based application. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ActivationContext class.

ActivationContext ac = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.ActivationContext;
ApplicationIdentity ai = ac.Identity;
Console.WriteLine("Full name = " + ai.FullName);
Console.WriteLine("Code base = " + ai.CodeBase);
