The SLAR (vol2) on System.AssemblyLoadEventHandler

Continuing in the series sharing some of the information in the .NET Framework Standard Library Annotated Reference Vol 1 and .NET Framework Standard Library Annotated Reference Vol 2 with some information on AssemblyLoadEventHandler.


CF public delegate void AssemblyLoadEventHandler(object sender,AssemblyLoadEventArgs args);




Looking back on it now, there are way too many types included in the System root namespace.

This namespace is automatically important in most projects and the proliferation of types

causes some degree of developer confusion. In retrospect we should have factored System

better and put these less commonly used types into a different namespace.

  1. MSDNArchive says:


    I strive to keep my code as simple as possible. That includes having as few ‘using’ directives as possible. Needing to reference something from another namespace is an indication of coupling.

    I would like that to mean that the Intellisense completion list is small & simple enough to navigate easily.

    But, with so many things in System, it can’t be done.
