Marshal.GetTypeForITypeInfo Method

Converts an unmanaged ITypeInfo object into a managed System.Type object.

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

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 Tlbimp.exe (Type Library Importer) tool uses the custom marshaler to translate ITypeInfo parameters to System.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.
