AddInToken.Activate<T> Method (AddInSecurityLevel)
Activates an add-in with a specified trust level in a new application domain.
Assembly: System.AddIn (in System.AddIn.dll)
The interface or abstract base type that represents the host view of the add-in.
- Type: System.AddIn.Hosting.AddInSecurityLevel
One of the enumeration values that specifies the trust level.
The host view of the add-in.
This method overload loads the add-in into an automatically generated application domain. If you want to specify a name for the new application domain, use the Activate<T>(AddInSecurityLevel, String) overload.
This method sets the base directory for the application domain to be the location of the add-in assembly. It also looks for the configuration file [addinassemblyname].dll.config and, if found, sets it to be the configuration file for the new application domain.
The following example shows how to activate an add-in, identified by the chosen token, in an automatically generated application domain with a specified security level.
//Ask the user which add-in they would like to use. AddInToken selectedToken = ChooseAddIn(tokens); //Activate the selected AddInToken in a new //application domain with the Internet trust level. Calculator CalcAddIn = selectedToken.Activate<Calculator>(AddInSecurityLevel.Internet); //Run the add-in using a custom method. RunCalculator(CalcAddIn);
