Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

	string friendlyName
)
public static AppDomain CreateDomain (
	String friendlyName
)
public static function CreateDomain (
	friendlyName : String
) : AppDomain

Parameters

friendlyName

The friendly name of the domain.

Return Value

The newly created application domain.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

friendlyName is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The friendlyName parameter is intended to identify the domain in a manner that is meaningful to humans. This string should be suitable for display in user interfaces.

This method overload uses the AppDomainSetup information from the default application domain.

The following sample demonstrates, in general, how to create a domain using one of the CreateDomain overloads.

// Set up the AppDomainSetup
AppDomainSetup setup = new AppDomainSetup();
setup.ApplicationBase = "(some directory)";
setup.ConfigurationFile = "(some file)";

// Set up the Evidence
Evidence baseEvidence = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.Evidence;
Evidence evidence = new Evidence(baseEvidence);
evidence.AddAssembly("(some assembly)");
evidence.AddHost("(some host)");

// Create the AppDomain      
AppDomain newDomain = AppDomain.CreateDomain("newDomain", evidence, setup);

// Set up the AppDomainSetup
AppDomainSetup setUp = new AppDomainSetup();
setUp.set_ApplicationBase("(some directory)");
setUp.set_ConfigurationFile("(some file)");
// Set up the Evidence
Evidence baseEvidence = AppDomain.get_CurrentDomain().get_Evidence();
Evidence evidence = new Evidence(baseEvidence);
evidence.AddAssembly("(some assembly)");
evidence.AddHost("(some host)");
// Create the AppDomain      
AppDomain newDomain = AppDomain.CreateDomain("newDomain", evidence, setUp);
