Dim myObject(2) As Object
myObject(0) = 66
myObject(1) = "puri"
myObject(2) = 33.33
' Get the array of 'Type' class objects.
Dim myTypeArray As Type() = Type.GetTypeArray(myObject)
Console.WriteLine("Full names of the 'Type' objects in the array are:")
Dim h As Integer
For h = 0 To myTypeArray.Length - 1
Next h

Object[] myObject = new Object[3];
myObject[0] = 66;
myObject[1] = "puri";
myObject[2] = 33.33;
// Get the array of 'Type' class objects.
Type[] myTypeArray = Type.GetTypeArray(myObject);
Console.WriteLine("Full names of the 'Type' objects in the array are:");
for(int h = 0; h < myTypeArray.Length ; h++)

Object* myObject[] = new Object*[3];
myObject->Item[0] = __box(66);
myObject->Item[1] = S"puri";
myObject->Item[2] = __box(33.33);
// Get the array of 'Type' class objects.
Type*  myTypeArray[] = Type::GetTypeArray(myObject);
Console::WriteLine(S"Full names of the 'Type' objects in the array are:");
for (int h = 0; h < myTypeArray->Length ; h++) {
