Deployment Class

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Provides app part and localization information in the app manifest when deploying a Windows Phone app.


Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: Not mapped to an xmlns.

Public NotInheritable Class Deployment _
	Inherits DependencyObject
  xmlns="" ... >

The Deployment type exposes the following members.

Public methodDeploymentInfrastructure. Initializes a new instance of the Deployment class.

Public propertyStatic memberCurrentGets the current Deployment object.
Public propertyDispatcherGets the Dispatcher this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public propertyEntryPointAssemblyGets a string name that identifies which part in the Deployment is the entry point assembly.
Public propertyEntryPointTypeGets a string that identifies the namespace and type name of the class that contains the Application entry point for your app.
Public propertyExternalPartsGets a collection of ExternalPart instances that represent the external assemblies required by the app.
Public propertyPartsGets a collection of assembly parts that are included in the deployment.
Public propertyRuntimeVersionGets the XAML runtime version that this deployment supports.

Public methodCheckAccessDetermines whether the calling thread has access to this object. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodClearValueClears the local value of a dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
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 the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetAnimationBaseValueReturns any base value established for a Windows Phone dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetValueReturns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodReadLocalValueReturns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodSetValueSets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Public fieldStatic memberEntryPointAssemblyPropertyIdentifies the EntryPointAssembly dependency property.
Public fieldStatic memberEntryPointTypePropertyIdentifies the EntryPointType dependency property.
Public fieldStatic memberExternalPartsPropertyIdentifies the ExternalParts dependency property.
Public fieldStatic memberPartsPropertyIdentifies the Parts dependency property.
Public fieldStatic memberRuntimeVersionPropertyIdentifies the RuntimeVersion dependency property.

The markup for app manifests is XAML. The manifest elements are mapped to the XML namespace.

Generally, you do not have to change the XAML in an app manifest if the project specifies that each build should generate the app manifest. In contrast to the very basic usage shown in the XAML Object Element Usage section above, a typical Deployment would also specify additional attributes, and might also contain property elements for Parts and ExternalParts.

You can retrieve a Deployment object in managed code through the Current property. This gives you read-only access to the deployment settings. To set deployment values, you must modify the AppManifest.xaml file deployed with your app package.
