Assembly.GetType Method (String)
Gets the Type object with the specified name in the assembly instance.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
name is invalid.
name is Nothing.
name requires a dependent assembly that could not be found.
name requires a dependent assembly that was found but could not be loaded.
The current assembly was loaded into the reflection-only context, and name requires a dependent assembly that was not preloaded.
name requires a dependent assembly, but the file is not a valid assembly.
name requires a dependent assembly which was compiled for a version of the runtime later than the currently loaded version.
The method is invoked late-bound through mechanisms such as Type.InvokeMember.
This method only searches the current assembly instance. The name parameter includes the namespace but not the assembly.
If the type has been forwarded to another assembly, it is still returned by this method.
