Definition

Gets a string representing the name of the module.

public:
 virtual property System::String ^ ScopeName { System::String ^ get(); };
public virtual string ScopeName { get; }
member this.ScopeName : string
Public Overridable ReadOnly Property ScopeName As String

Property Value

The module name.

Examples

This example shows the effect of the ScopeName, FullyQualifiedName, and Name properties.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;
int main()
{
   Module^ mod = Assembly::GetExecutingAssembly()->GetModules()[ 0 ];
   Console::WriteLine( "Module Name is {0}", mod->Name );
   Console::WriteLine( "Module FullyQualifiedName is {0}", mod->FullyQualifiedName );
   Console::WriteLine( "Module ScopeName is {0}", mod->ScopeName );
}

/*
Produces this output:
Module Name is modname.exe
Module FullyQualifiedName is C:\Bin\modname.exe
Module ScopeName is modname.exe
*/
using System.Reflection;
using System;

public class Simple
{
   public static void Main ()
   {
        Module mod = typeof(Simple).Assembly.GetModules()[0];
        Console.WriteLine ("Module Name is "
           + mod.Name);
        Console.WriteLine ("Module FullyQualifiedName is "
           + mod.FullyQualifiedName);
        Console.WriteLine ("Module ScopeName is "
           + mod.ScopeName);
   }
}
/*
The example displays output like the folloowing:
Module Name is modname.exe
Module FullyQualifiedName is C:\Bin\modname.exe
Module ScopeName is modname.exe
*/
Imports System.Reflection

Public Class Simple
    Public Shared Sub Main()
        Dim myMod As [Module] = GetType(Simple).Assembly.GetModules()(0)
        Console.WriteLine("Module Name is " + myMod.Name)
        Console.WriteLine("Module FullyQualifiedName is " +
                          myMod.FullyQualifiedName)
        Console.WriteLine("Module ScopeName is " +
                          myMod.ScopeName)
    End Sub
End Class
' The example displays output like the following:
' Module Name is modname.exe
' Module FullyQualifiedName is C:\Bin\modname.exe
' Module ScopeName is modname.exe 

Remarks

The ScopeName property is not used by the common language runtime, but you can use it to store any string you want in the property when you emit a module using the metadata APIs. Reflection itself does not allow you to set the ScopeName property.
