A GUID is associated with a type using the GuidAttribute attribute.

The following example creates the class MyClass1 with a public method, creates a Type object corresponding to MyClass1, and gets the Guid structure using the GUID property of the Type class.

using namespace System;
ref class MyGetTypeFromCLSID
{
public:
   ref class MyClass1
   {
   public:
      void MyMethod1(){}
   };
};

int main()
{

   // Get the type corresponding to the class MyClass.
   Type^ myType = MyGetTypeFromCLSID::MyClass1::typeid;

   // Get the Object* of the Guid.
   Guid myGuid = (Guid)myType->GUID;
   Console::WriteLine( "The name of the class is {0}", myType );
   Console::WriteLine( "The ClassId of MyClass is {0}", myType->GUID );
}
