AssemblyPart.Load Method

Silverlight

Converts a Stream to an Assembly that is subsequently loaded into the current application domain.

Namespace:  System.Windows
Assembly:  System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)

[SecuritySafeCriticalAttribute]
public Assembly Load(
	Stream assemblyStream
)

Parameters

assemblyStream
Type: System.IO.Stream
The Stream to load into the current application domain.

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection.Assembly
The Assembly that is subsequently loaded into the current application domain.

You cannot load multiple versions of the same assembly into the current application domain.

The following code example demonstrates how to use this method to download a remote assembly and then load it into the application domain.
