Imported Module Conversion

A type library can have one or more modules containing the definitions of constants and methods. Constants defined within modules are imported as public constant static members of a class with the same name as the original module. Constants defined outside of a module are not imported.

Type library representation

[
    uuid(12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789ABC),  
]
library TestConstants
{
    [
        uuid(12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789ABC),  
        dllname("test.dll")
    ]
    module Constants
    {
        const short FRAME_COLOR = 0x10;
        const short WINDOW_COLOR = 0x20;
        const short BUTTON_COLOR = 0x40;
        ...
    };
};

Converted types appear as follows:

Public Class Constants
    Public Const FRAME_COLOR As Short = &H10
    Public Const WINDOW_COLOR As Short = &H20
    Public Const BUTTON_COLOR As Short = &H40
End Class
[C#]
public class Constants
{
    public const short FRAME_COLOR = 0x10;
    public const short WINDOW_COLOR = 0x20;
    public const short BUTTON_COLOR = 0x40;
}
