From scavaging the around the web, I pieced together the follow steps to setup TortiseSVN’s revision number (aka subwcrev) and time stamp as part of the assembly version.
- Copy the existing Properties\AssemblyInfo.cs file to a file named AssemblyInfo.template
- Edit the file, changing to the following:
[assembly: AssemblyVersion("1.0.0.$WCREV$")] [assembly: AssemblyFileVersion("1.0.0.$WCREV$")]
- Edit the Project properties, adding the following Pre-Build events:
cd "$(ProjectDir)" SubWCRev . "Properties\AssemblyInfo.template" "Properties\AssemblyInfo.cs"
- Build your code, and display the assembly version info with the following snippet:
this.Text += "- " + Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().Version.ToString();
