Required Attributes

Attribute Description
loadTypes Specifies whether to load all types specified in this configuration file when the application starts, so that you can be alerted if there is an error in your configuration file. This helps to prevent simple typing errors from becoming a time-consuming debugging effort.

Example

The following configuration file example tells the .NET Remoting system to attempt to load the types specified in this file (in this case, the ServiceClass and TcpChannel types) when the client application starts.

<configuration>
   <system.runtime.remoting>
      <application>
         <client>
            <wellknown 
               type="ServiceClass, IService"
               url="tcp://computername:8080/TcpService"
            />
         </client>
         <channels>
            <channel ref="tcp"/>
         </channels>
      </application>
      <debug loadTypes="true" />
   </system.runtime.remoting>
</configuration>
