static member GetTypeFromProgID : progID:string * server:string * throwOnError:bool -> Type

The following example retrieves a type by passing a ProgID and server name. The example then displays the ClassID related to the ProgID, specifying whether to throw an exception if the ProgID or the server name is invalid.
