IFeatureSupport.GetVersionPresent Method (Object)

 

Retrieves the version of the specified feature.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

Version GetVersionPresent(
	object feature
)

Parameters

feature
Type: System.Object

The feature whose version is requested.

Return Value

Type: System.Version

A Version representing the version number of the specified feature; or null if the feature is not installed.

For an implementation of this method, see GetVersionPresent.

The following example uses the OSFeature implementation of IFeatureSupport and queries for the LayeredWindows feature. The version is checked to see if it is null, to determine whether the feature is present. The result is displayed in a text box. This code assumes textBox1 has been created and placed on a form.

private void LayeredWindows() {
   // Gets the version of the layered windows feature.
   Version myVersion = OSFeature.Feature.GetVersionPresent(OSFeature.LayeredWindows);

   // Prints whether the feature is available.
   if (myVersion != null)
      textBox1.Text = "Layered windows feature is installed." + '\n';
   else
      textBox1.Text = "Layered windows feature is not installed." + '\n';

   // This is an alternate way to check whether a feature is present.
   if (OSFeature.Feature.IsPresent(OSFeature.LayeredWindows))
      textBox1.Text += "Again, layered windows feature is installed.";
   else
      textBox1.Text += "Again, layered windows feature is not installed.";
}
