C# Program to Print the Current Assembly Name Using GetExecutingAssembly() Method

  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 16 Nov, 2021

In C#, GetExecutingAssembly() method is the method of Assembly class. This method returns the assembly that contains the code that is currently executing. To use this method we have to use System.Reflection in our program.

Syntax:

public static System.Reflection.Assembly GetExecutingAssembly ();

It will return the current program assembly, version, culture, and PublicKeyToken. 

Example 1:

C#




// C# program to display the current assembly name 
using System;
using System.Reflection;
  
class GFG{
      
static void Main(string[] args)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Current assembly contains:");
    
    // Get the executing assembly
    // Using GetExecutingAssembly() method
    Console.WriteLine(Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly());
}
}

Output:

Current assembly contains:
main, Version=0.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null

Example 2:

C#




// C# program to display the current assembly name 
using System;
using System.Reflection;
  
class GFG{
      
static void Main(string[] args)
{
      
    // Get the executing assembly 
    // with FullName property
    // FullName property is use 
    // to print the name of the assembly
    Console.WriteLine(Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().FullName);
}
}

Output:

main, Version=0.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null
