Marshal.IsComObject Method

Indicates whether a specified object represents a COM object.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.InteropServices
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public static bool IsComObject(
	Object o
)

Parameters

o
Type: System.Object

The object to check.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the o parameter is a COM type; otherwise, false.

IsComObject returns true if the class type of the instance is attributed with System.Runtime.InteropServices.ComImportAttribute or if it derives directly or indirectly from a class attributed with ComImportAttribute. The Tlbimp.exe (Type Library Importer) tool applies this attribute for you when it imports a type library.

Two other methods also determine whether a specified object represents a COM object, but the requirements for returning true differ from this method's requirements. Type.IsImport returns true if the class (or interface) is attributed with ComImportAttribute directly; it does not return true for derived types. RegistrationServices.TypeRepresentsComType returns true if the type is attributed with ComImportAttribute or derives from a type with the same GUID.
