Type.GetTypeFromCLSID Method (Guid, String, Boolean)

Gets the type associated with the specified class identifier (CLSID) from the specified server, specifying whether to throw an exception if an error occurs while loading the type.

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

public static Type GetTypeFromCLSID(
	Guid clsid,
	string server,
	bool throwOnError
)

Parameters

clsid
Type: System.Guid

The CLSID of the type to get.

server
Type: System.String

The server from which to load the type. If the server name is null, this method automatically reverts to the local machine.

throwOnError
Type: System.Boolean

true to throw any exception that occurs.

-or-

false to ignore any exception that occurs.

Return Value

Type: System.Type
System.__ComObject regardless of whether the CLSID is valid.

Exceptions such as OutOfMemoryException will be thrown when specifying true for throwOnError, but it will not fail for unregistered CLSIDs.

The following example retrieves the type associated with the CLSID from the local host, specifying whether to throw an exception if an error occurs while loading the type.

// Create a GUID.
Guid myGuid3 = new Guid("8D8529D3-625D-4496-8354-3DAD630ECC1B");
// Get the type associated with the CLSID 
// from the local host and specify whether to throw an exception if an  
// error occurs while loading the type.
Type myType3 =Type.GetTypeFromCLSID(myGuid3, ".", true);
Console.WriteLine("The GUID associated with myType3 is {0}.", myType3.GUID);
Console.WriteLine("The type of the GUID is {0}.", myType3.ToString());
