Public ReadOnly Property Platform As PlatformID

Property Value

Examples

The following code example creates several OperatingSystem objects and displays the Platform property for each.

// Example for the OperatingSystem.Platform and 
// OperatingSystem.Version properties.
using namespace System;

// Create an OperatingSystem object and display the Platform
// and Version properties.
void BuildOSObj( PlatformID pID, Version^ ver )
{
   OperatingSystem^ opSys = gcnew OperatingSystem( pID,ver );
   PlatformID platform = opSys->Platform;
   Version^ version = opSys->Version;
   Console::WriteLine( "   Platform: {0,-15} Version: {1}", platform, version );
}

void BuildOperatingSystemObjects()
{
   
   // The Version object does not need to correspond to an 
   // actual OS version.
   Version^ verNull = gcnew Version;
   Version^ verString = gcnew Version( "3.5.8.13" );
   Version^ verMajMin = gcnew Version( 6,10 );
