Hi.

I need an ability to find type by name.
At the moment I'm using following code:

Type t = Type.GetType("System.Data.DataTable", false, true);

but it always returns null! :-(
Why?!

The application which is run this code has a reference to System.Data.dll, so I assume it must be able to find a "System.Data.DataTable".
Any ideas?
