Render nodes as "Unknown type" when a typeload exception occurs

Aug 5, 2011 at 6:55 AM

SPM logs the cases where a typeload exception happens during rendering of the node-tree. F.ex. when a node is based on a custom type inheriting from SPJobDefinition, and the custom type is missing from the GAC. In order for the node to appear, the correct assembly must be in the gac, and SPM has to be restarted.

When catching that typeload exception (where the current logging happens), would it be possible to add a node with "Unknown type" or similar to the tree? This will give a useful hint about what is going on.


thanks for a great tool!
