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 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.
