CodeDomProvider.GetAllCompilerInfo Method

Returns the language provider and compiler configuration settings for this computer.

Namespace:  System.CodeDom.Compiler
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public static CompilerInfo[] GetAllCompilerInfo()

Return Value

Type: System.CodeDom.Compiler.CompilerInfo[]
An array of type CompilerInfo representing the settings of all configured CodeDomProvider implementations.


The caller does not have the required permission.

Use the GetAllCompilerInfo method to enumerate the language provider settings on a computer.


In the .NET Framework version 2.0, the default language providers supplied by the .NET Framework are not specified in the <system.codedom> Element compiler configuration section and cannot be removed, so this method returns information about the default providers and any specified in the configuration file.

The following code example enumerates the language providers on the computer and displays the configuration and compiler settings for each language provider. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the CompilerInfo class.

CompilerInfo [] allCompilerInfo = CodeDomProvider.GetAllCompilerInfo();
foreach (CompilerInfo info in allCompilerInfo)
    String defaultLanguage;
    String defaultExtension;

    CodeDomProvider provider = info.CreateProvider();

    // Display information about this configured provider.

    Console.WriteLine("Language provider:  {0}", 

    Console.WriteLine("  Supported file extension(s):");
    foreach(String extension in info.GetExtensions())
        Console.WriteLine("    {0}", extension);

    defaultExtension = provider.FileExtension;
    if (defaultExtension[0] != '.')
        defaultExtension = "." + defaultExtension;
    Console.WriteLine("  Default file extension:  {0}", 

    Console.WriteLine("  Supported language(s):");
    foreach(String language in info.GetLanguages())
        Console.WriteLine("    {0}", language);

    defaultLanguage = CodeDomProvider.GetLanguageFromExtension(defaultExtension);
    Console.WriteLine("  Default language:        {0}",

    // Get the compiler settings for this provider.
    CompilerParameters langCompilerConfig = info.CreateDefaultCompilerParameters();

    Console.WriteLine("  Compiler options:        {0}", 
    Console.WriteLine("  Compiler warning level:  {0}",
