Marshal.GetTypeInfoName Method (UCOMITypeInfo)

NOTE: This API is now obsolete.

Retrieves the name of the type represented by an ITypeInfo.

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

[ObsoleteAttribute("Use System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.GetTypeInfoName(ITypeInfo pTLB) instead. http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=14202&ID=0000011.", 
	false)]
[SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.UnmanagedCode)]
public static string GetTypeInfoName(
	UCOMITypeInfo pTI
)

Parameters

pTI
Type: System.Runtime.InteropServices.UCOMITypeInfo

A UCOMITypeInfo that represents an ITypeInfo pointer.

Return Value

Type: System.String
The name of the type pointed to by the pTI parameter.

You can also retrieve the name of the type represented by an ITypeInfo by calling the UCOMITypeInfo.GetDocumentation method and passing a -1 for its first parameter. For additional information about ITypeInfo, see the MSDN Library.

NoteNote:

This method uses SecurityAction.LinkDemand to prevent it from being called from untrusted code; only the immediate caller is required to have SecurityPermissionAttribute.UnmanagedCode permission. If your code can be called from partially trusted code, do not pass user input to Marshal class methods without validation. For important limitations on using the LinkDemand member, see Demand vs. LinkDemand.
