Returns a programmatic identifier (ProgID) for the specified type.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.InteropServices
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.UnmanagedCode)]
public static string GenerateProgIdForType(
	Type type
)

Parameters

type
Type: System.Type

The Type to get a ProgID for.

Return Value

Type: System.String
The ProgID of the specified type.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

The type parameter is not a class that can be create by COM. The class must be public, have a public default constructor, and be COM visible.

ArgumentNullException

The type parameter is null.

If the type has a ProgID in the metadata, then it is returned. Otherwise a ProgID is generated based on the fully qualified name of the type.

NoteNote:

This method uses SecurityAction.LinkDemand to prevent it from being called from untrusted code; only the immediate caller is required to have SecurityPermissionAttribute.UnmanagedCode permission. If your code can be called from partially trusted code, do not pass user input to Marshal class methods without validation. For important limitations on using the LinkDemand member, see Demand vs. LinkDemand.
