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());						
    }
}
