Type.GetTypeFromCLSID Method (Guid, String)

.NET Framework 1.1

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

[Visual Basic]
Overloads Public Shared Function GetTypeFromCLSID( _
   ByVal clsid As Guid, _
   ByVal server As String _
) As Type
[C#]
public static Type GetTypeFromCLSID(
 Guid clsid,
 string server
);
[C++]
public: static Type* GetTypeFromCLSID(
 Guid clsid,
 String* server
);
[JScript]
public static function GetTypeFromCLSID(
   clsid : Guid,
 server : String
) : Type;

Parameters

clsid
The CLSID of the type to get.
server
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.

Return Value

System.__ComObject regardless of whether the CLSID is valid.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example retrieves the type associated with the CLSID from the local host.

[Visual Basic] 
' Create a GUID.
Dim myGuid2 As New Guid("00020812-0000-0000-c000-000000000046")
' Get the type associated with the CLSID
' from the local host.
Dim myType2 As Type = Type.GetTypeFromCLSID(myGuid2, ".")
Console.WriteLine("The GUID associated with myType2 is {0}.", myType2.GUID.ToString())
Console.WriteLine("The type of the GUID is {0}.", myType2.ToString())

[C#] 
// 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());

[C++] 
// Create a GUID.
Guid myGuid2 = Guid(S"00020812-0000-0000-c000-000000000046");
// Get the type associated with the CLSID
// from the local host.
Type* myType2 =Type::GetTypeFromCLSID(myGuid2, S".");
Console::WriteLine(S"The GUID associated with myType2 is {0}.",__box( myType2->GUID));
Console::WriteLine(S"The type of the GUID is {0}.", myType2);
