AppDomainSetup.AppDomainManagerType Property

Gets or sets the full name of the type that provides the application domain manager for application domains created using this AppDomainSetup object.

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

public string AppDomainManagerType { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The full name of the type, including the namespace.

To specify the type of the application domain manager, set both this property and the AppDomainManagerAssembly property. If either of these properties is not set, the other is ignored.

If no type is provided, the application domain manager is created from the same type as the parent application domain (that is, the application domain from which the AppDomain.CreateDomain method is called).

When the application domain is loaded, TypeLoadException is thrown if the assembly specified by the AppDomainManagerAssembly property does not contain the type specified by this property.

To set the application domain manager for the default application domain, use the <appDomainManagerAssembly> and <appDomainManagerType> elements in the <runtime> section of the application configuration file, or use the environment variables described in AppDomainManager.

This feature requires the application to have full trust. (For example, an application running on the desktop has full trust.) If the application does not have full trust, a TypeLoadException is thrown.

The format of the full name of a type is given by the Type.FullName property.
