.NET/C#: use Assembly.GetName() if you to access internal/private information from Assembly

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/12/26

There is a lot of information in Assembly that is either internal or private. Luckily you van get an AssemblyName instance through Assembly.GetName() or Assembly.GetName(Boolean) which has quite a few public members that get initialized while calling the internal AssemblyName.Init method.

This is the member mapping of AssemblyName members to Assembly members:

AssemblyName member Assembly member
Name GetSimpleName() *internal
GetPublicKey() GetPublicKey() *internal
GetPublicKeyToken() null
Version GetVersion() *internal
contains the AssemblyVersionAttribute of the assembly
CultureInfo GetLocale() *internal
HashAlgorithm GetHashAlgorithm() *private
VersionCompatibility AssemblyVersionCompatibility.SameMachine
CodeBase GetCodeBase(Bool) *internal
Flags GetFlags() | AssemblyNameFlags.PublicKey
KeyPair null
ProcessorArchitecture complex set of calls


via: Assembly.GetName Method (Boolean) (System.Reflection).
