Can we use two partial classes in different assemblies represent the same Class.

Posted By :Ravi Ranjan Kumar     Posted Date :June 16, 2011    Points :40   Category :.NET Framework 
we cannot have two partial classes referring to the same class in two different assemblies (projects). Once the assembly is compiled, the meta-data is baked in, and your classes are no longer partial. Partial classes allows you to split the definition of the same class into two files.
partial classes is a compile-time phenomenon, not runtime. Classes in assemblies are by definition complete.

What is Partial Class?

Partial class:

Instead of defining an entire class, you can split the definition into multiple classes by using the partial keyword. When the application is complied, the C# complier will group all the partial classes together and treat them as a single class. There are a couple of good reasons to use partial classes. Programmers can work on different parts of a class without needing to share the same physical file. Also you can separate your application business logic from the designer-generated code.

Public partial class Employee
public void Method2()
