Getting started

This solution come from the idea of Gérald Barré on Meziantou's blog Getting the date of build of a .NET assembly at runtime

1. Add/Update PackageReference with PrivateAssets=build in .csproj

<ItemGroup>
  <PackageReference Include="NetLah.Abstractions" Version="0.1.1" PrivateAssets="build" />
</ItemGroup>

2. Output during build

Microsoft (R) Build Engine version 16.10.1+2fd48ab73 for .NET
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

  Determining projects to restore...
  All projects are up-to-date for restore.
  SampleApp -> C:\Work\NetLah\abstractions\samples\SampleApp\bin\Debug\net5.0\SampleApp.dll
  AssemblyBuildDate := [set] 2021-06-10T05:28:33

Build succeeded.
    0 Warning(s)
    0 Error(s)

Time Elapsed 00:00:01.84

2. Retrieve build datetime of assemly

var asm = new AssemblyInfo(typeof(AssemblyInfo).Assembly);
Console.WriteLine($"AssemblyTitle:{asm.Title}");
Console.WriteLine($"Version:{asm.InformationalVersion} BuildTime:{asm.BuildTimestampLocal}; Framework:{asm.FrameworkName}");

The output:

AssemblyTitle:NetLah.Abstractions
Version:0.0.0-alpha.0.1 BuildTime:2021-05-09T12:26:28+08:00; Framework:.NETStandard,Version=v2.1

3. Or Retrieve build datetime of entry assemly

var appInfo = ApplicationInfo.Initialize(null);
Console.WriteLine($"AppTitle:{appInfo.Title}");
Console.WriteLine($"Version:{appInfo.InformationalVersion} BuildTime:{appInfo.BuildTimestampLocal};Framework:{appInfo.FrameworkName}");

Output:

AppTitle:SampleApp
Version:0.0.0-alpha.0.1 BuildTime:2021-05-09T12:26:56+08:00; Framework:.NETCoreApp,Version=v5.0

4. Use Directory.Build.targets to declare build date attribute to all projects inside the solution

  • Set build date to projects that already include packageReference NetLah.Abstractions
<ItemGroup>
  <PackageReference Update="NetLah.Abstractions" Version="0.1.1" PrivateAssets="build" />
</ItemGroup>
  • Set build date to all projects
<ItemGroup>
  <PackageReference Include="NetLah.Abstractions" />
  <PackageReference Update="NetLah.Abstractions" Version="0.1.1" PrivateAssets="build" />
</ItemGroup>
