BrowserCapabilitiesCodeGenerator Class

This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

The BrowserCapabilitiesCodeGenerator class is used internally by the aspnet_regbrowsers tool to parse .browser browser definition files and add browsers to the run-time collection of known browsers contained in the BrowserCapabilitiesFactory object.


Namespace:  System.Web.Configuration
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public class BrowserCapabilitiesCodeGenerator

The BrowserCapabilitiesCodeGenerator type exposes the following members.

Public methodBrowserCapabilitiesCodeGeneratorUsed internally to create a new instance of BrowserCapabilitiesCodeGenerator.

Public methodCreateUsed internally to coordinate the behavior of this class.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodProcessBrowserFilesLoads and parses the XML contained in a collection of browser-definition files and inserts the information contained therein into an internal collection of browsers.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodUninstallRemoves the browser capabilities factory from the global assembly cache and deletes its strong name public key token file.

This class generates the source code for an assembly for the BrowserCapabilitiesFactory class, which, at run time, produces request-specific HttpCapabilitiesBase objects to be publicly accessed through the ASP.NET intrinsic Request.Browser property.
