Getting a Type object for a user-defined class from the class's name
I need to get a Type object corresponding to a user defined type that isn't known until runtime. I know System.Type.GetType will do this for System.Types, but how about a user type? Is there any way to do this without using the Activator class to create an instance of the object and then getting the type off of that?
This is for DeSerializing a class that isn't know until runtime.
