C# Question

Getting assembly name

C#'s exception class has a source property which is set to the name of the assembly by default.

Is there another way to get this exact string (without parsing a different string)?

I have tried the following:

catch(Exception e)
{
string str = e.Source;
//"EPA" - what I want
str = System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().FullName;
//"EPA, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null"
str = typeof(Program).FullName;
//"EPA.Program"
str = typeof(Program).Assembly.FullName;
//"EPA, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null"
str = typeof(Program).Assembly.ToString();
//"EPA, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null"
str = typeof(Program).AssemblyQualifiedName;
//"EPA.Program, EPA, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null"
}

Answer
System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().Name

or

typeof(Program).Assembly.GetName().Name;
