)
public static Type GetTypeFromCLSID (
	Guid clsid,

public static function GetTypeFromCLSID (
	clsid : Guid, 
	server : String
) : Type

Parameters

The CLSID of the type to get.

The server from which to load the type. If the server name is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), this method automatically reverts to the local machine.

// Create a GUID.
Guid myGuid2 = new Guid("00020812-0000-0000-c000-000000000046");
// Get the type associated with the CLSID
// from the local host.
Type myType2 =Type.GetTypeFromCLSID(myGuid2, ".");
Console.WriteLine("The GUID associated with myType2 is {0}.", myType2.GUID);
Console.WriteLine("The type of the GUID is {0}.", myType2.ToString());

// Create a GUID.
Guid myGuid2 = new Guid("00020812-0000-0000-c000-000000000046");

// Get the type associated with the CLSID
// from the local host.
Type myType2 = Type.GetTypeFromCLSID(myGuid2, ".");
Console.WriteLine("The GUID associated with myType2 is {0}.",
    myType2.get_GUID());
Console.WriteLine("The type of the GUID is {0}.",
    myType2.ToString());
