Property Value

An InstallerCollection containing the collection of installers associated with this installer.

The Installers property contains a collection of installers that install objects needed by this Installer instance to correctly install the component. The Install, Commit, Rollback, and Uninstall methods of the Installer class go through the collection of installers and invokes the corresponding method of each installer.

If this instance of Installer is contained in an installer collection, the Parent property is the Installer instance that contains the collection. For an example of the use of the Installers collection, see the AssemblyInstaller class.

The following example demonstrates the Installers and Parent properties. The Installers property shows the InstallerCollection associated with an Installer.

Dim myAssemblyInstaller As New AssemblyInstaller()
Dim myServiceInstaller As New ServiceInstaller()
Dim myEventLogInstaller As New EventLogInstaller()
Dim myInstallerCollection As InstallerCollection = _

' Add Installers to the InstallerCollection of 'myAssemblyInstaller'.

Dim myInstaller(1) As Installer
myInstallerCollection.CopyTo(myInstaller, 0)
' Show the contents of the InstallerCollection of 'myAssemblyInstaller'.
Console.WriteLine("Installers in the InstallerCollection : ")
Dim iIndex As Integer
For iIndex = 0 To myInstaller.Length - 1
Next iIndex

AssemblyInstaller myAssemblyInstaller = new AssemblyInstaller();
ServiceInstaller myServiceInstaller = new ServiceInstaller();
EventLogInstaller myEventLogInstaller = new EventLogInstaller();
InstallerCollection myInstallerCollection 
    = myAssemblyInstaller.get_Installers();

// Add Installers to the InstallerCollection of 'myAssemblyInstaller'.
Installer myInstaller[] = new Installer[2];
myInstallerCollection.CopyTo(myInstaller, 0);

//Show the contents of the InstallerCollection of 'myAssemblyInstaller'.
Console.WriteLine("Installers in the InstallerCollection : ");
