Android – How to you get the build/version number of your Android application


I need to figure out how to get or make a build number for my Android application. I need the build number to display in the UI.

Do I have to do something with AndroidManifest.xml?

Best Solution


try {
    PackageInfo pInfo = context.getPackageManager().getPackageInfo(context.getPackageName(), 0);
    String version = pInfo.versionName;
} catch (PackageManager.NameNotFoundException e) {

And you can get the version code by using this

int verCode = pInfo.versionCode;
