Marshal.GetTypeForITypeInfo Method

Converts an ITypeInfo into a managed Type object.

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

[SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.UnmanagedCode)]
public static Type GetTypeForITypeInfo(
	IntPtr piTypeInfo
)

Parameters

piTypeInfo
Type: System.IntPtr

The ITypeInfo interface to marshal.

Return Value

Type: System.Type
A managed Type that represents the unmanaged ITypeInfo.

GetTypeForITypeInfo returns a System.Type instance that is based on the original type. You can apply the System.Runtime.InteropServices.MarshalAsAttribute to replace standard interop marshaling behavior with this custom marshaler. The Type Library Importer (Tlbimp.exe) uses the custom marshaler to translate ITypeInfo parameters to Type parameters. However, if you obtain an ITypeInfo interface by some means other than Tlbimp.exe, you can use GetTypeForITypeInfo to manually perform the same translation. For additional information about ITypeInfo, see the MSDN Library.

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.
