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.
