abstract member GetVersionPresent : obj -> Version

Returns

A Version representing the version number of the specified feature; or null if the feature is not installed.

Examples

The following example uses the OSFeature implementation of IFeatureSupport and queries for the LayeredWindows feature. The version is checked to see if it is null, to determine whether the feature is present. The result is displayed in a text box. This code assumes textBox1 has been created and placed on a form.

private:
   void LayeredWindows()
   {
      // Gets the version of the layered windows feature.
      Version^ myVersion = OSFeature::Feature->GetVersionPresent(
         OSFeature::LayeredWindows );
      
      // Prints whether the feature is available.
      if ( myVersion != nullptr )
      {
         textBox1->Text = "Layered windows feature is installed.\n";
      }
      else
      {
         textBox1->Text = "Layered windows feature is not installed.\n";
      }

      
      // This is an alternate way to check whether a feature is present.
      if ( OSFeature::Feature->IsPresent( OSFeature::LayeredWindows ) )
      {
         textBox1->Text = String::Concat( textBox1->Text,
            "Again, layered windows feature is installed." );
      }
      else
      {
         textBox1->Text = String::Concat( textBox1->Text,
            "Again, layered windows feature is not installed." );
      }
   }
private void LayeredWindows() {
   // Gets the version of the layered windows feature.
   Version myVersion = OSFeature.Feature.GetVersionPresent(OSFeature.LayeredWindows);

   // Prints whether the feature is available.
   if (myVersion != null)
      textBox1.Text = "Layered windows feature is installed." + '\n';
   else
      textBox1.Text = "Layered windows feature is not installed." + '\n';

   // This is an alternate way to check whether a feature is present.
   if (OSFeature.Feature.IsPresent(OSFeature.LayeredWindows))
      textBox1.Text += "Again, layered windows feature is installed.";
   else
      textBox1.Text += "Again, layered windows feature is not installed.";
}

Private Sub LayeredWindows()
    ' Gets the version of the layered windows feature.
    Dim myVersion As Version = _
       OSFeature.Feature.GetVersionPresent(OSFeature.LayeredWindows)
       
    ' Prints whether the feature is available.
    If (myVersion IsNot Nothing) Then
        textBox1.Text = "Layered windows feature is installed." & _
           ControlChars.CrLf
    Else
        textBox1.Text = "Layered windows feature is not installed." & _
           ControlChars.CrLf
    End If 
    'This is an alternate way to check whether a feature is present.
    If OSFeature.Feature.IsPresent(OSFeature.LayeredWindows) Then
        textBox1.Text &= "Again, layered windows feature is installed."
    Else
        textBox1.Text &= "Again, layered windows feature is not installed."
    End If
End Sub
