importlib

Makes types that have already been compiled into another type library available to the type library being created.

[ importlib(
   "tlb_file"
) ];

tlb_file

The name of a .tlb file, in quotes, that you want imported into the type library of the current project.

The importlib C++ attribute causes an importlib statement to be placed in the library block of the generated .idl file. The importlib attribute has the same functionality as the importlib MIDL attribute.

The following code shows an example of how to use importlib:

// cpp_attr_ref_importlib.cpp
// compile with: /LD
[module(name="MyLib")];
[importlib("importlib.tlb")];
