Gets the full name of the assembly, also known as the display name.

Namespace:  System.Reflection
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

member FullName : string

Property Value

Type: System..::..String
A string that is the full name of the assembly, also known as the display name.

The display name typically consists of the simple name, version number, supported culture, and public key. For example:

mylib, Version=1.2.1900.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a14f3033def15840

Writing your own code to parse display names is not recommended. Instead, pass the display name to the #ctor constructor, which parses it and populates the appropriate fields of the new AssemblyName.

When an assembly is loaded, this value can also be obtained using the Assembly..::..FullName property.
