Type.GetTypeFromCLSID Method (Guid)

Gets the type associated with the specified class identifier (CLSID).

Namespace: System
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static Type GetTypeFromCLSID (
	Guid clsid
)
public static Type GetTypeFromCLSID (
	Guid clsid
)
public static function GetTypeFromCLSID (
	clsid : Guid
) : Type
Not applicable.

Parameters

clsid

The CLSID of the type to get.

Return Value

System.__ComObject regardless of whether the CLSID is valid.

The following example retrieves a GUID by passing the clsid parameter to the constructor of the Guid structure, and then retrieves the type associated with the specified class identifier (CLSID).

using System;
class MyGetTypeFromCLSID
{
    public static void Main()
    {
        // Create a GUID object by passing the clsid parameter.
        Guid myGuid1 = new Guid("1AE77DA4-1063-4ab3-BCD2-085B001EFB97");
        // Get the type object associated with the CLSID.
        Type myType1 = Type.GetTypeFromCLSID(myGuid1);
        // Display the GUID.
        Console.WriteLine(myType1.GUID);
        // Convert the GUID to a string.
        Console.WriteLine(myType1.ToString());						
    }
}

import System.*;

class MyGetTypeFromCLSID
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Create a GUID object by passing the clsid parameter.
        Guid myGuid1 = new Guid("1AE77DA4-1063-4ab3-BCD2-085B001EFB97");

        // Get the type object associated with the CLSID.
        Type myType1 = Type.GetTypeFromCLSID(myGuid1);

        // Display the GUID.
        Console.WriteLine(myType1.get_GUID());

        // Convert the GUID to a string.
        Console.WriteLine(myType1.ToString());
    } //main
} //MyGetTypeFromCLSID
