System.Environment Class
« on: February 13, 2006, 02:07:14 AM »
For anyone playing around with a Console App
or the System.Environment Class ...
here's a teaser.

Code: [Select]
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;

// codehimbelonga kwb : posted@TheSwamp 20060213
// For NET 2.0 Console App

namespace ConsoleApplication20060213A
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Yellow;
            Console.BackgroundColor = ConsoleColor.Blue;
            Console.WindowWidth = 120;
            Console.Clear();

            try {
                DateTime dt = DateTime.Now;
                // http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/zdtaw1bw.aspx

                Console.Title = (string.Format(" Console Application Testing : KDUB {0} ",
                                dt.ToString("yyyy, MMM, dd  HH:mm:ss")));

                Console.WriteLine("Current Operating System : {0} ", Environment.OSVersion);
                Console.WriteLine("Current User Name : {0} ", Environment.UserName);
                Console.WriteLine(Environment.NewLine);

                Console.WriteLine("NET Version : {0} ", Environment.Version);

                Console.WriteLine(Environment.NewLine);
                Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Black;

                Console.WriteLine("Current Directory : {0} ", Environment.CurrentDirectory);

                Console.WriteLine(Environment.NewLine);
                Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.White;

                string[] drives = Environment.GetLogicalDrives();
                for (int i = 0; i < drives.Length; i++)
                    Console.WriteLine("Drive {0} : {1} ", i, drives[i]);

                Console.WriteLine(Environment.NewLine);
                Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Yellow;

                Console.WriteLine("Personal Folder : {0} ",
                     Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.Personal));

                Console.WriteLine("My Documents Folder : {0} ",
                     Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments));

                Console.WriteLine("ProgramFiles Folder : {0} ",
                     Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.ProgramFiles));

                Console.WriteLine("LocalApplicationData Folder : {0} ",
                     Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.LocalApplicationData));

                Console.WriteLine("Favorites Folder : {0} ",
                     Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.Favorites));

                Console.WriteLine("Internet Cache : {0} ",
                     Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.InternetCache));

                Console.WriteLine(Environment.NewLine);

            } catch (Exception e) { Console.WriteLine(e.ToString()); }
        }
    }
}

Perfection is not optional.
Everything will work just as you expect it to, unless your expectations are incorrect.

... and here's one guaranteed to put bumps on your forehead ..

you'd be looking for MachineName, right , not ComputerName. <which is buried in  System.Windows.Forms.SystemInformation >
.. but the resulting string is the same.
 
Code: [Select]
               Console.WriteLine("Current Computer Name : {0} ",
                    System.Windows.Forms.SystemInformation.ComputerName);

                Console.WriteLine("Current Machine Name : {0} ", Environment.MachineName);
