Assembly Property

Gets or sets the name of the assembly that contains the client script file as an embedded resource.

Syntax

CSharp

[DefaultValueAttribute("")]
[CategoryAttribute("Behavior")]
public string Assembly { get; set; }

VisualBasic

<DefaultValueAttribute("")> _
<CategoryAttribute("Behavior")> _
Public Property Assembly As String

ManagedCPlusPlus

[DefaultValueAttribute(L"")]
[CategoryAttribute(L"Behavior")]
public:
String^ Assembly {
	String^ get ();
	void set (String^ value);
}

JSharp

/** @property */
/** @property */

Value

Return Value

The fully qualified or partially qualified name of the assembly that contains a client script as an embedded resource.

Remarks

You set the Assembly property when you reference a client script file that is included as an embedded resource in an assembly. Set Assembly to the fully qualified or partially qualified assembly name. A fully qualified assembly name includes a name, culture, public key, and version number. A partially qualified assembly name includes only a name.

When you specify a value for Assembly, you must also specify the name of the embedded resource in the Name property. Otherwise, an InvalidOperationException will be thrown.

The assembly being referenced must be located in either the Bin folder of the Web site or in the global assembly cache.

Examples

The following example shows how to reference a custom control and a JavaScript file that is contained in an assembly in the Bin folder of the Web site. The custom control animates UpdatePanel controls. The JavaScript file is compiled as an embedded resource that is named SampleControl.UpdatePanelAnimation.js. You register the JavaScript file that is embedded by using the Assembly and Name properties.

To use this example, compile the supporting JavaScript file as an embedded resource with the custom control. For an example of how to embed a JavaScript file in an assembly, see Embedding a JavaScript File as a Resource in an Assembly.

The following example shows a page that uses the custom control.

vb

BorderAnimation.prototype = {
    animate: function(panelElement) {
        var s = panelElement.style;
        s.borderWidth = '2px';
        s.borderColor = this._color;

            }},
            500);
    }
}


You must also add the following code to the AssemblyInfo file of the project that contains the custom control and the JavaScript file.

CS

[assembly: System.Web.UI.WebResource("SampleControl.UpdatePanelAnimation.js", "application/x-javascript")]

vb

<Assembly: System.Web.UI.WebResource("SampleControl.UpdatePanelAnimation.js", "application/x-javascript")>
