AppDomain.CreateInstance Method (String, String, Boolean, BindingFlags, Binder, Object, CultureInfo, Object)
Creates a new instance of the specified type defined in the specified assembly. Parameters specify a binder, binding flags, constructor arguments, culture-specific information used to interpret arguments, and optional activation attributes.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
member CreateInstance : assemblyName:string * typeName:string * ignoreCase:bool * bindingAttr:BindingFlags * binder:Binder * args:Object * culture:CultureInfo * activationAttributes:Object -> 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.
- Type: System.Boolean
A Boolean value specifying whether to perform a case-sensitive search or not.
- 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 enables the binding, coercion of argument types, invocation of members, and retrieval of MemberInfo objects using reflection. If binder is null, the default binder is used.
- Type: System.Object
The arguments to pass to the constructor. This array of arguments must match in number, order, and type the parameters of the constructor to invoke. If the default constructor is preferred, args must be an empty array or null.
- 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 a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the CultureInfo for the current thread is used.
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.
The operation is attempted on an unloaded application domain.
assemblyName or typeName is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
assemblyName is not a valid assembly.
assemblyName was compiled with a later version of the common language runtime than the version that is currently loaded.
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 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 a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
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.
