Type.GetType problem

Hi!

How do I get the type of partial class?

Namespace Test
   Public Partial Class c1
        Public Partial Class c2
              Public Sub Test
              End Sub
        End Class
   End Class
End Namespace

Dim classType as Type = Type.GetType(Test.c1.c2,false,false)

This will return null!

Just use the GetType operator:

Dim classType As Type = GetType(Test.c1.c2)

Type.GetType acts on a string name, but you are passing a class type instead of an string.  You can also use:

Dim classType As Type = Type.GetType("WindowsApplication1.Test.c1+c2", False, False)

Note that WindowsApplication1 is the root namespace.  You would have to change it for your program.  The + precedes a nested class
