Instanciating an object from it's type name
Instanciating a control from it's type name is easy..
string typeName = "YourNameSpace.YourObject"; Type assType = Type.GetType(typeName); object dynamicControl = Activator.CreateInstance(assType);
One thing you may run into is that in some cases the type name needs to be a fully qualified name.. You can get this name like so:
string typeName = this.GetType().AssemblyQualifiedName;
