Microsoft Silverlight will reach end of support after October 2021. Learn more.
Provides application part and localization information in the application manifest when deploying a Silverlight-based application.

'Declaration Public NotInheritable Class Deployment _ Inherits DependencyObject
public sealed class Deployment : DependencyObject
<Deployment xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/client/2007/deployment" ... > ... </Deployment>
The Deployment type exposes the following members.
|Deployment||Infrastructure. Initializes a new instance of the Deployment class.|
|Current||Gets the current Deployment object.|
|Dispatcher||Gets the Dispatcher this object is associated with. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|EntryPointAssembly||Gets a string name that identifies which part in the Deployment is the entry point assembly.|
|EntryPointType||Gets a string that identifies the namespace and type name of the class that contains the Application entry point for your application.|
|ExternalCallersFromCrossDomain||Gets a value that indicates the level of access that cross-domain callers have to the Silverlight-based application in this deployment.|
|ExternalParts||Gets a collection of ExternalPart instances that represent the external assemblies required by the application.|
|InBrowserSettings||Gets an object that contains information about the application that is used for in-browser support.|
|OutOfBrowserSettings||Gets an object that contains information about the application that is used for out-of-browser support.|
|Parts||Gets a collection of assembly parts that are included in the deployment.|
|RuntimeVersion||Gets the Silverlight runtime version that this deployment supports.|
|CheckAccess||Determines whether the calling thread has access to this object. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|ClearValue||Clears the local value of a dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetAnimationBaseValue||Returns any base value established for a Silverlight dependency property, which would apply in cases where an animation is not active. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|GetAppIdForUri||Infrastructure. Security Critical. Gets a value that represents a unique ID for an out-of-browser application.|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetValue||Returns the current effective value of a dependency property from a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ReadLocalValue||Returns the local value of a dependency property, if a local value is set. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|RegisterAssembly||Infrastructure. Security Critical. Enables a native Silverlight host, such as Expression Blend or Visual Studio, to instruct Silverlight to register an assembly that the Silverlight host has separately loaded into the host-managed application domain in which a Silverlight application is running.|
|SetCurrentApplication||Infrastructure. Security Critical. Allows a native host of the Silverlight plug-in to specify the current Application object of the running Silverlight application.|
|SetValue||Sets the local value of a dependency property on a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|EntryPointAssemblyProperty||Identifies the EntryPointAssembly dependency property.|
|EntryPointTypeProperty||Identifies the EntryPointType dependency property.|
|ExternalCallersFromCrossDomainProperty||Identifies the ExternalCallersFromCrossDomain dependency property.|
|ExternalPartsProperty||Identifies the ExternalParts dependency property.|
|InBrowserSettingsProperty||Identifies the InBrowserSettings dependency property.|
|OutOfBrowserSettingsProperty||Identifies the OutOfBrowserSettings dependency property.|
|PartsProperty||Identifies the Parts dependency property.|
|RuntimeVersionProperty||Identifies the RuntimeVersion dependency property.|
The markup for application manifests is technically XAML. However the various elements for manifests are not included in the typical default Silverlight XML namespace (http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation). Instead, the manifest elements are mapped to the http://schemas.microsoft.com/client/2007/deployment XML namespace.
Generally, you do not have to change the XAML in an application manifest if the project specifies that each build should generate the application manifest. In contrast to the very basic usage shown in the XAML Object Element Usage section above, a typical Deployment would also specify additional attributes, and might also contain property elements for Parts, ExternalParts, and OutOfBrowserSettings.
You can retrieve a Deployment object in managed code through the Current property. This gives you read-only access to the deployment settings. To set deployment values, you must modify the AppManifest.xaml file deployed with your application package.
In Visual Studio, the AppManifest.xaml file is generated by the build based on information that you specify in the project designer. For more information, see Silverlight Page, Project Designer.
By default, the build generates the AppManifest.xaml from a template in the Properties folder named AppManifest.xml. You can specify values in the manifest template or you can disable manifest generation to provide your own AppManifest.xaml file. This is useful, for example, to specify non-default values for the RuntimeVersion and ExternalCallersFromCrossDomain properties.
You should not specify out-of-browser settings in the manifest template if you specify the same values by using the project designer or the OutOfBrowserSettings.xml file. For more information, see How to: Configure an Application for Out-of-Browser Support.
