IRemoteObjectContract.RemoteCast Method

Casts the object identified by the current IRemoteObjectContract to a specified type.

Namespace:  System.AddIn.Contract.Automation
Assembly:  System.AddIn.Contract (in System.AddIn.Contract.dll)

RemoteArgument RemoteCast(
	string canonicalName


Type: System.String

The canonical name of the type to cast the object to.

Return Value

Type: System.AddIn.Contract.RemoteArgument
A RemoteArgument that represents the result of the cast operation.

A canonical name is a globally unique name, such as a GUID. Strings in the format <assembly name>, <fully qualified type name> are recommended. An example of the recommended format of a canonical name is "ShapeApp, Microsoft.VisualStudio.Tools.Applications.Samples.ShapeApp.Application".

The canonical name for a type cannot change after a type is published in a component. Changing the canonical name of a type in a future version of a component breaks compatibility between the component and clients that are already using the type.

It is recommended that RemoteCast implementations throw an InvalidCastException if the cast operation fails.
