Tortisesvns Revision In As Version Number In Net

under SVN Gist


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.

  1. Copy the existing Properties\AssemblyInfo.cs file to a file named AssemblyInfo.template
  2. Edit the file, changing to the following:
     [assembly: AssemblyVersion("1.0.0.$WCREV$")]
     [assembly: AssemblyFileVersion("1.0.0.$WCREV$")]
  3. Edit the Project properties, adding the following Pre-Build events:
     cd "$(ProjectDir)"
     SubWCRev . "Properties\AssemblyInfo.template" "Properties\AssemblyInfo.cs"
  4. Build your code, and display the assembly version info with the following snippet: this.Text += "- " + Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().Version.ToString();
