ScopeName Property

Module.ScopeName Property

Gets a string representing the name of the module.

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

public virtual string ScopeName { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The module name.

The ScopeName property is not used by the common language runtime, but you can use it to store any string you want in the property when you emit a module using the metadata APIs. Reflection itself does not allow you to set the ScopeName property.

This example shows the effect of the ScopeName, FullyQualifiedName, and Name properties.

using System.Reflection;
using System;

public class Simple
   public static void Main ()
        Module mod = typeof(Simple).Assembly.GetModules()[0];
        Console.WriteLine ("Module Name is "
           + mod.Name);
        Console.WriteLine ("Module FullyQualifiedName is "
           + mod.FullyQualifiedName);
        Console.WriteLine ("Module ScopeName is "
           + mod.ScopeName);
The example displays output like the folloowing:
Module Name is modname.exe
Module FullyQualifiedName is C:\Bin\modname.exe
Module ScopeName is modname.exe
