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

Public MustOverride ReadOnly Property GUID As Guid
Dim instance As Type
Dim value As Guid

value = instance.GUID

/** @property */
public abstract Guid get_GUID ()

public abstract function get GUID () : Guid

Property Value

The GUID associated with the Type.

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.

Imports System

Class MyGetTypeFromCLSID

    Public Class MyClass1

        Public Sub MyMethod1()
        End Sub 'MyMethod1

    End Class 'MyClass1

    Public Shared Sub Main()
        ' Get the type corresponding to the class MyClass.
        Dim myType As Type = GetType(MyClass1)
        ' Get the object of the Guid.
        Dim myGuid As Guid = CType(myType.GUID, Guid)
        Console.WriteLine(("The name of the class is " + myType.ToString()))
        Console.WriteLine(("The ClassId of MyClass is " + myType.GUID.ToString()))
    End Sub 'Main 
End Class 'MyGetTypeFromCLSID

import System.*;

class MyGetTypeFromCLSID
    public class MyClass1
        public void MyMethod1()
        } //MyMethod1
    } //MyClass1

    public static void main(String[] args)
        // Get the type corresponding to the class MyClass.
        Type myType = MyClass1.class.ToType();

        // Get the object of the Guid.
        Guid myGuid = (Guid)(myType.get_GUID());
        Console.WriteLine("The name of the class is " + myType.ToString());
        Console.WriteLine("The ClassId of MyClass is " + myType.get_GUID());
    } //main
} //MyGetTypeFromCLSID
