I see in the Stack Overflow footer that the SVN Revision number is displayed. Is this automated and if so, how does one implement it in ASP.NET?

(Solutions in other languages are acceptable)

Make sure that the file has svn:keywords "Rev Id" and then put $Rev$ somewhere in there.

See this question and the answers to it.

Thanks, I guess the Duplicate Checker isn't working fully yet.

The search seems to be an "OR" instead of an "AND" :-( If you do a search for ASP.NET SVN on the search bar, you will not find it on Page 6 or so.

it definitely should get some refining.

Hi, in our continuous integration setup we use SVNRevisionLabeller and pass the variables from this to MSBuild to use when creating the compiled website dll. It's then available to .NET using GetCurrentAssembly() in the final build.

In our rails app I have a secret (unpulished url, restricted to a certain class of authenticated user) action which literally does this

render :text => `svn info #{RAILS_ROOT}`

(this is the equivalent of Process.Start( "svn info..." ) if you're only familiar with .net)

If I'm wondering if the guy who manages the servers has updated the site recently, I can hit this URL, and have a look

If you're using ASP.Net MVC, I've written an easy to follow 3-step guide on how to automatically get and display the latest SVN revision :o)
