Dynamic Type Loading

Here is a very simple sample of dynamic type loading:

==== LoadLibrary.cs ==== 

using System;
using System.Reflection;

namespace LoadLibrary
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Assembly ass = Assembly.LoadFile(AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory
                + @”.SimpleLib.dll”);
            Type type = ass.GetType(“SimpleLib.SimpleClass”);
            object newInstance = Activator.CreateInstance(type);

=== SimpleClass.cs ===

namespace SimpleLib
    public class SimpleClass
        public override string ToString()
            return “I am a simple class”;


Build simple class into SimpleLib.dll

Build LoadLibrary into LoadLibrary.exe

Put SimpleLib.dll into the same directory as LoadLibrary.
