public:
 static property AppDomain ^ CurrentDomain { AppDomain ^ get(); };
public static AppDomain CurrentDomain { get; }
member this.CurrentDomain : AppDomain
Public Shared ReadOnly Property CurrentDomain As AppDomain

Property Value

The current application domain.

Examples

The following code example creates a new application domain. The CurrentDomain property is used to obtain an AppDomain object that represents the current application domain. The FriendlyName property provides the name of the current application domain, which is then displayed at the command line.

using namespace System;

int main()
{
    AppDomain^ root = AppDomain::CurrentDomain;

    AppDomainSetup^ setup = gcnew AppDomainSetup();
    setup->ApplicationBase = 
        root->SetupInformation->ApplicationBase + "MyAppSubfolder\\";

    AppDomain^ domain = AppDomain::CreateDomain("MyDomain", nullptr, setup);

    Console::WriteLine("Application base of {0}:\r\n\t{1}", 
        root->FriendlyName, root->SetupInformation->ApplicationBase);
    Console::WriteLine("Application base of {0}:\r\n\t{1}", 
        domain->FriendlyName, domain->SetupInformation->ApplicationBase);

    AppDomain::Unload(domain);
}

/* This example produces output similar to the following:

Application base of MyApp.exe:
        C:\Program Files\MyApp\
Application base of MyDomain:
        C:\Program Files\MyApp\MyAppSubfolder\
 */
using System;

class ADSetupInformation
{
    static void Main()
    {
        AppDomain root = AppDomain.CurrentDomain;

        AppDomainSetup setup = new AppDomainSetup();
        setup.ApplicationBase = 
            root.SetupInformation.ApplicationBase + @"MyAppSubfolder\";

        AppDomain domain = AppDomain.CreateDomain("MyDomain", null, setup);

        Console.WriteLine("Application base of {0}:\r\n\t{1}", 
            root.FriendlyName, root.SetupInformation.ApplicationBase);
        Console.WriteLine("Application base of {0}:\r\n\t{1}", 
            domain.FriendlyName, domain.SetupInformation.ApplicationBase);

        AppDomain.Unload(domain);
    }
}

/* This example produces output similar to the following:

        C:\Program Files\MyApp\
