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.

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 = myType.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
