AppDomain.CreateInstance Method (String, String, Object())
Creates a new instance of the specified type defined in the specified assembly. A parameter specifies an array of activation attributes.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration Public Function CreateInstance ( _ assemblyName As String, _ typeName As String, _ activationAttributes As Object() _ ) As ObjectHandle
- Type: System.String
The fully qualified name of the requested type, including the namespace but not the assembly, as returned by the Type.FullName property.
Return ValueType: System.Runtime.Remoting.ObjectHandle
An object that is a wrapper for the new instance specified by typeName. The return value needs to be unwrapped to access the real object.
Implements_AppDomain.CreateInstance(String, String, Object())
The operation is attempted on an unloaded application domain.
assemblyName or typeName is Nothing.
assemblyName is not a valid assembly.
Version 2.0 or later of the common language runtime is currently loaded and assemblyName was compiled with a later version.
An assembly or module was loaded twice with two different evidences.
assemblyName was not found.
The caller does not have permission to call this constructor.
No matching public constructor was found.
The caller cannot provide activation attributes for an object that does not inherit from MarshalByRefObject.
typename was not found in assemblyName.
This instance is Nothing.
This method calls the default constructor for typeName.
See AssemblyName for the format of assemblyName.
The activationAttributes parameter is related to client-activated objects; see Client Activation.
An attempt to call CreateInstance on a target application domain that is not the current application domain will result in a successful load of the assembly in the target application domain. Since an Assembly is not MarshalByRefObject, when this method attempts to return the Assembly for the loaded assembly to the current application domain, the common language runtime will try to load the assembly into the current application domain and the load might fail. The assembly that is loaded into the current application domain might be different from the assembly that was loaded first if the path settings for the two application domains are different.
