AssemblyVersionAttribute Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the AssemblyVersionAttribute class with the version number of the assembly being attributed.

Namespace:  System.Reflection
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Syntax

'Declaration
Public Sub New ( _
    version As String _
)
public AssemblyVersionAttribute(
    string version
)

Parameters

  • version
    Type: System.String
    The version number of the attributed assembly.

Remarks

The format of the version string is: major. minor. build. revision.

When specifying a version, you have to at least specify major. If you specify major and minor, you can specify an asterisk (*) for build. This will cause build to be equal to the number of days since January 1, 2000 local time, and for revision to be equal to the number of seconds since midnight local time, divided by 2.

If you specify major, minor, and build, you can specify an asterisk for revision. This will cause revision to be equal to the number of seconds since midnight local time, divided by 2.

Examples of valid version strings include:

1

1.1

1.1.*

1.1.1

1.1.1.*

1.1.1.1
