When this code ends, you'll get
"System.String, mscorlib"

instead of

"System.String, mscorlib, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089"

string typename = obj.GetType().AssemblyQualifiedName;

typename = Regex.Replace(typename, @", Version=\d+.\d+.\d+.\d+",string.Empty);

typename = Regex.Replace(typename, @", Culture=\w+", string.Empty);

typename = Regex.Replace(typename, @", PublicKeyToken=\w+", string.Empty);
