Default Problem with the namespace & classes

Hi guys,

I have a DLL with a class named Test_Remoting with a namespace Testclass.The code is like this

    Dim tmp As Object
    tmp = System.Type.GetType("System.String")
    tmp = System.Type.GetType("TestClass.Test_Remoting")

The problem is when i write
     tmp = System.Type.GetType("System.String")
it returns a value but when I write
     tmp = System.Type.GetType("TestClass.Test_Remoting")
which refers to my class it refers to Nothing.
I have been breaking my head against this for a very long time.I simply cant und what is the problem.
Please guys help me out.

Thanks in advance.

System.Type.GetType() method requires fully qualified name of the type. So if the assembly. If the type is in mscoflib.dll then it is sufficiant to supply type name followed by the namespace. To get the fully qualified name of type refer to the following article.
Hope this helps.
