c# programmatically retrieve file path of runtime objects

From a Method object you can get the host Type object.

From a Type object you can get the host Assembly object.

From Assembly object you can get the physical assembly file.

1) (tested) Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().Location; // gives the dll fullpath
1c) new T().GetType().Assembly; //returns the Assembly object. Works even though T is a template dummy type!

2) Process.GetCurrentProcess().MainModule.FileName

3) AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory; // Similar to 1)
