AppDomain.CreateDomain Method (String, Evidence)
Creates a new application domain with the given name using the supplied evidence.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration Public Shared Function CreateDomain ( _ friendlyName As String, _ securityInfo As Evidence _ ) As AppDomain
- Type: System.String
The friendly name of the domain. This friendly name can be displayed in user interfaces to identify the domain. For more information, see FriendlyName.
- Type: System.Security.Policy.Evidence
Evidence that establishes the identity of the code that runs in the application domain. Pass Nothing to use the evidence of the current application domain.
Return ValueType: System.AppDomain
The newly created application domain.
This method overload uses the AppDomainSetup information from the default application domain.
If securityInfo is not supplied, the evidence from the current application domain is used.
Do not use this method overload to create sandboxed application domains. Beginning with the .NET Framework version 4, the evidence that is supplied for securityInfo no longer affects the grant set of the application domain. Use the CreateDomain(String, Evidence, AppDomainSetup, PermissionSet, StrongName()) method overload to create sandboxed application domains.
The following sample demonstrates, in general, how to create a domain using one of the CreateDomain overloads.
' Set up the AppDomainSetup Dim setup As New AppDomainSetup() setup.ApplicationBase = "(some directory)" setup.ConfigurationFile = "(some file)" ' Set up the Evidence Dim baseEvidence As Evidence = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.Evidence Dim evidence As New Evidence(baseEvidence) evidence.AddAssembly("(some assembly)") evidence.AddHost("(some host)") ' Create the AppDomain Dim newDomain As AppDomain = AppDomain.CreateDomain("newDomain", evidence, setup)
