Examples

The following code sample demonstrates how to use the ProcessModule class to get and display information about all the modules that are used by the Notepad.exe application.

Process^ myProcess = gcnew Process;

// Get the process start information of notepad.
ProcessStartInfo^ myProcessStartInfo = gcnew ProcessStartInfo( "notepad.exe" );

// Assign 'StartInfo' of notepad to 'StartInfo' of 'myProcess' Object*.
myProcess->StartInfo = myProcessStartInfo;

// Create a notepad.
myProcess->Start();
System::Threading::Thread::Sleep( 1000 );
ProcessModule^ myProcessModule;

// Get all the modules associated with 'myProcess'.
ProcessModuleCollection^ myProcessModuleCollection = myProcess->Modules;
Console::WriteLine( "Properties of the modules  associated with 'notepad' are:" );

// Display the properties of each of the modules.
for ( int i = 0; i < myProcessModuleCollection->Count; i++ )
{
   myProcessModule = myProcessModuleCollection[ i ];
   Console::WriteLine( "The moduleName is {0}", myProcessModule->ModuleName );
   Console::WriteLine( "The {0}'s base address is: {1}", myProcessModule->ModuleName, myProcessModule->BaseAddress );
   Console::WriteLine( "The {0}'s Entry point address is: {1}", myProcessModule->ModuleName, myProcessModule->EntryPointAddress );
   Console::WriteLine( "The {0}'s File name is: {1}", myProcessModule->ModuleName, myProcessModule->FileName );
}
myProcessModule = myProcess->MainModule;

// Display the properties of the main module.
Console::WriteLine( "The process's main moduleName is: {0}", myProcessModule->ModuleName );
Console::WriteLine( "The process's main module's base address is: {0}", myProcessModule->BaseAddress );
Console::WriteLine( "The process's main module's Entry point address is: {0}", myProcessModule->EntryPointAddress );
Console::WriteLine( "The process's main module's File name is: {0}", myProcessModule->FileName );
myProcess->CloseMainWindow();

Remarks

A module is an executable file or a dynamic link library (DLL). Each process consists of one or more modules. You can use this class to get information about the module.

Important

This type implements the IDisposable interface. When you have finished using the type, you should dispose of it either directly or indirectly. To dispose of the type directly, call its Dispose method in a try/catch block. To dispose of it indirectly, use a language construct such as using (in C#) or Using (in Visual Basic). For more information, see the "Using an Object that Implements IDisposable" section in the IDisposable interface topic.
