As promised, here is how I get the IronSpeed version Dynamically.  This way when you upgrade your application it will always show the version it was created in.  In this how-to document I also added the javascript code to do the dynamic copyright as well.  This parser class uses the AppInfo.xml file that IronSpeed uses when it creates the application.  Enjoy, and thanks for your patience as I was creating the document.  As always, make sure you have a backup of your application before attempting.  Though you shouldn't have any problem.  I also, as a sidebar put this class in the App_Code folder.  Even though I have gotten it to work outside.  I figured I would keep it simple so you wouldn't have a problem.

I like this idea but we have a lot of webapps/websites written in VB. While I personally would prefer to work in C#, it's a least common denominator to develop in VB. 

So...  I created a dll from Wayne's code and did a write up with details on how to create and use a dll from Wayne's XMLParser in a VB webapp/website.

Thanks Wayne, I always prefer to automate something that I will certainly forget to update at some point in time.

Paul, Great job taking it to the next step.  I agree with you on making things easily repeatable.

Such as Life sometimes we get things started and move on to the next item at hand.  I am glad that you found it useful enough to take it to the next step.  Well done my friend.
Wayne
