How to get your project's version dynamically in C#?

Ok, so I wanted to create a little Help | About page that looks like this.

MyProgram 1.0.0.5

I don’t really want to have to remember to change the version in the help file with each release, so I wanted to get the version dynamically.

Turns out that you can get the version as a string with a single line of code:

String theVersion = System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetName().Version.ToString();

Once you have the version as a string, you can display it how you want.
