Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
See AssemblyName for a description of the format of the display name of an assembly.
Writing your own code to parse display names is not recommended. Instead, pass the display name to the AssemblyName constructor, which parses it and populates the appropriate fields of the new AssemblyName.
In the .NET Framework version 2.0, processor architecture is added to assembly identity, and can be specified as part of assembly name strings. However, it is not included in the string returned by the FullName property, for compatibility reasons. See AssemblyName.ProcessorArchitecture.
The following example retrieves the full name of an assembly.
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()); // Write the display name of assembly including base name and version. Console.WriteLine("FullName=" + SampleAssembly.FullName);
