This article demonstrates how to get system environment information like Operating System,.NET Version, Machine Name, Username, Domain Name, Directory Name, Command Line using wpf.

Here we go, first of all create a new WPF Project.

By default wpf application has some assembly

Now let's start working on .xaml page. First of all add a namespace for mscorlib assembly.

xmlns:r="clr-namespace:System;assembly=mscorlib"

MSCorlib- It is special, any compiler needs it because it contains types that are required to make the language syntax work. System.Array, System.Int32, System.String, System.Exception, etc.

Write this .xamlcode on page:

<TextBlock>
<
Label Content="Operating System Version : "></Label>
<
Label Content="{x:Static r:Environment.OSVersion}"></Label>
<
LineBreak></LineBreak>
<
Label Content="Dot NET Version : "></Label>
<
Label Content="{x:Static r:Environment.Version}"></Label>
<
LineBreak></LineBreak>
<
Label Content="Machine Name : "></Label>
<
Label Content="{x:Static r:Environment.MachineName}"></Label>
<
LineBreak></LineBreak>
<
Label Content="User Name : "></Label>
<
Label Content="{x:Static r:Environment.UserName}"></Label>

<LineBreak></LineBreak>
<
Label Content="User Domain Name : "></Label>
<
Label Content="{x:Static r:Environment.UserDomainName}"></Label>
<
LineBreak></LineBreak>
<
Label Content="System Directory : "></Label>
<
Label Content="{x:Static r:Environment.SystemDirectory}"></Label>
<
LineBreak></LineBreak>
<
Label Content="Current Directory : "></Label>
<
Label Content="{x:Static r:Environment.CurrentDirectory}"></Label>
<
LineBreak></LineBreak>
<
Label Content="Command Line : "></Label>
<
Label Content="{x:Static r:Environment.CommandLine}"></Label>
</
TextBlock>
