Get assembly info. Thank You.

P: n/a
Hello,

I created an DLL Library which includes various web controls,
classes, ...

I would like to create a class, named Info, with a function that would
return some information about the library like its version, copyright,
etc.

A user that uses this library in its web site could do something like:
MyNamespace.Info.GetInfo to get some library information.

How can i do this?

Thanks,
Miguel

Your assembly already has metadata for this purpose. The AssemblyInfo file
can be edited to provide the data and this information can be viewed by
anything that understands it, including the file system.
