ICorProfilerInfo::GetAssemblyInfo Method

Accepts an assembly ID, and returns the assembly's name and the ID of its manifest module.


HRESULT GetAssemblyInfo(  
    [in]  AssemblyID  assemblyId,  
    [in]  ULONG       cchName,  
    [out] ULONG       *pcchName,  
    [out, size_is(cchName), length_is(*pcchName)]  
          WCHAR       szName[] ,  
    [out] AppDomainID *pAppDomainId,  
    [out] ModuleID    *pModuleId);  


[in] The identifier of the assembly.

[in] The length, in characters, of szName.

[out] A pointer to the total character length of the assembly's name.

[out] A caller-provided wide character buffer. When the function returns, it will contain the assembly's name.

[out] A pointer to the ID of the application domain that contains the assembly.

[out] A pointer to the ID of the assembly's manifest module.


After this method returns, you must verify that the szName buffer was large enough to contain the full name of the assembly. To do this, compare the value that pcchName points to with the value of the cchName parameter. If pcchName points to a value that is larger than cchName, allocate a larger szName buffer, update cchName with the new, larger size, and call GetAssemblyInfo again.

Alternatively, you can first call GetAssemblyInfo with a zero-length szName buffer to obtain the correct buffer size. You can then adjust the buffer size based on the value returned in pcchName and call GetAssemblyInfo again.
