Examples

This example uses the My.Application.Info.Version property to display the version of the application.

MsgBox("Application version: " & My.Application.Info.Version.ToString)

Remarks

Some of the properties exposed by the My.Application.Info object return the application's assembly information. To set the information in the application's assembly, you must use the Assembly Information dialog box, accessible from the Application pane of the Project Designer.

The My.Application.Info object provides functionality similar to the FileVersionInfo class but is scoped to give quick access to the most common properties.

Other properties, such as LoadedAssemblies, provide access to the current state of the application.
