( string assembly_name, string class_name [, int codepage] )
DOTNET class constructor. assembly_name specifies
which assembly should be loaded, and class_name
specifices which class in that assembly to instantiate. You may
optionally specify a codepage to use for unicode
string transformations; see the COM class
for more details on code pages.
The returned object is an overloaded object, which means that PHP does
not see any fixed methods as it does with regular classes; instead, any
property or method accesses are passed through to COM and from there to
DOTNET. In other words, the .Net object is mapped through the COM
interoperability layer provided by the .Net runtime.
Once you have created a DOTNET object, PHP treats it identically to any
other COM object; all the same rules apply.
Example 1. DOTNET example
$stack = new DOTNET("mscorlib", "System.Collections.Stack");
echo $stack->Pop() . $stack->Pop();
You need to install the .Net runtime on your web server to take advantage
of this feature.
