Examples

The following code example uses the FriendlyName property to get the friendly name of the current application domain. For the default application domain, the friendly name is the name of the application's executable file. The code example also displays additional information about the application domain.

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:

Application base of MyApp.exe:
        C:\Program Files\MyApp\
Application base of MyDomain:
        C:\Program Files\MyApp\MyAppSubfolder\
 */
Class ADSetupInformation

    Shared Sub Main()

        Dim root As AppDomain = AppDomain.CurrentDomain

        Dim setup As New AppDomainSetup()
        setup.ApplicationBase = _
            root.SetupInformation.ApplicationBase & "MyAppSubfolder\"

        Dim domain As AppDomain = AppDomain.CreateDomain("MyDomain", Nothing, setup)

        Console.WriteLine("Application base of {0}:" & vbCrLf & vbTab & "{1}", _
            root.FriendlyName, root.SetupInformation.ApplicationBase)
        Console.WriteLine("Application base of {0}:" & vbCrLf & vbTab & "{1}", _
            domain.FriendlyName, domain.SetupInformation.ApplicationBase)

        AppDomain.Unload(domain)
    End Sub
End Class

' 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\

Remarks

The friendly name of the default application domain is the file name of the process executable. For example, if the executable used to start the process is "c:\MyAppDirectory\MyAssembly.exe", the friendly name of the default application domain is "MyAssembly.exe".
