Type: Type
The type loaded or null if it could not be loaded.

If the type name is fully qualified, i.e. if contains an assembly name in the type name, the type will be loaded from the system using GetType(string, bool).

If the type name is not fully qualified, it will be loaded from the assembly containing the specified relative type. If the type is not found in the assembly then all the loaded assemblies will be searched for the type.
