Activator.CreateInstance Method (AppDomain, String, String, Boolean, BindingFlags, Binder, Object(), CultureInfo, Object())
Creates an instance of the type whose name is specified in the specified remote domain, using the named assembly and the constructor that best matches the specified parameters.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration Public Shared Function CreateInstance ( _ domain As AppDomain, _ assemblyName As String, _ typeName As String, _ ignoreCase As Boolean, _ bindingAttr As BindingFlags, _ binder As Binder, _ args As Object(), _ culture As CultureInfo, _ activationAttributes As Object() _ ) As ObjectHandle
- Type: System.AppDomain
The domain where the type named typeName is created.
- Type: System.String
The name of the assembly where the type named typeName is sought. If assemblyName is Nothing, the executing assembly is searched.
- Type: System.String
The fully qualified name of the preferred type.
- Type: System.Boolean
true to specify that the search for typeName is not case-sensitive; false to specify that the search is case-sensitive.
- Type: System.Reflection.BindingFlags
A combination of zero or more bit flags that affect the search for the typeName constructor. If bindingAttr is zero, a case-sensitive search for public constructors is conducted.
- Type: System.Reflection.Binder
An object that uses bindingAttr and args to seek and identify the typeName constructor. If binder is Nothing, the default binder is used.
- Type: System.Object()
An array of arguments that match in number, order, and type the parameters of the constructor to invoke. If args is an empty array or Nothing, the constructor that takes no parameters (the default constructor) is invoked.
- Type: System.Globalization.CultureInfo
Culture-specific information that governs the coercion of args to the formal types declared for the typeName constructor. If culture is Nothing, the CultureInfo for the current thread is used.
Return ValueType: System.Runtime.Remoting.ObjectHandle
A handle that must be unwrapped to access the newly created instance.
domain or typeName is Nothing.
No matching constructor was found.
typename was not found in assemblyName.
assemblyName was not found.
The caller does not have permission to call this constructor.
Cannot create an instance of an abstract class, or this member was invoked with a late-binding mechanism.
The constructor, which was invoked through reflection, threw an exception.
activationAttributes is not an empty array, and the type being created does not derive from MarshalByRefObject.
The constructor that best matches args has varargs arguments.
assemblyName is not a valid assembly.
The common language runtime (CLR) version 2.0 or later is currently loaded, and assemblyName was compiled for a version of the CLR that is later than the currently loaded version. Note that the .NET Framework versions 2.0, 3.0, and 3.5 all use CLR version 2.0.
An assembly or module was loaded twice with two different evidences.
The assembly name or code base is invalid.
Use CreateInstance when a host needs to execute code in an application domain that has restricted security permissions.
Use ObjectHandle.Unwrap to unwrap the return value.
The activationAttributes parameter is related to client-activated objects; see Client Activation.
requires full trust for the immediate caller. This member cannot be used by partially trusted or transparent code.
