The following example attempts to load a non-existent type from the mscorlib assembly. The resulting exception is caught, and the TypeName and Message values are displayed.

// Load the mscorlib assembly and get a reference to it.
// You must supply the fully qualified assembly name for mscorlib.dll here.
Assembly^ myAssembly = Assembly::Load( "Assembly text name, Version, Culture, PublicKeyToken" );
   Console::WriteLine( "This program throws an exception upon successful run." );

   // Attempt to load a non-existent type from an assembly. 
   Type^ myType = myAssembly->GetType( "System.NonExistentType", true );
catch ( TypeLoadException^ e ) 
   // Display the name of the Type that was not found.
   Console::WriteLine( "TypeLoadException: \n\tError loading the type '{0}' from the assembly 'mscorlib'", e->TypeName );
   Console::WriteLine( "\tError Message = {0}", e->Message );
