Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
To get the absolute path to the loaded manifest-containing file, use the Assembly.Location property instead.
If the assembly was loaded as a byte array, using an overload of the Load method that takes an array of bytes, this property returns the location of the caller of the method, not the location of the loaded assembly.
The following example shows an expression that uses the CodeBase property.
Assembly SampleAssembly; // Instantiate a target object. Int32 Integer1 = new Int32(); Type Type1; // Set the Type instance to the target class type. Type1 = Integer1.GetType(); // Instantiate an Assembly class to the assembly housing the Integer type. SampleAssembly = Assembly.GetAssembly(Integer1.GetType()); // Gets the location of the assembly using file: protocol. Console.WriteLine("CodeBase=" + SampleAssembly.CodeBase);
