Marshal.GetObjectForNativeVariant Method

Converts a COM VARIANT to an object.

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

[SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.UnmanagedCode)]
public static Object GetObjectForNativeVariant(
	IntPtr pSrcNativeVariant
)

Parameters

pSrcNativeVariant
Type: System.IntPtr

An IntPtr containing a COM VARIANT.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
An object corresponding to the pSrcNativeVariant parameter.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOleVariantTypeException

pSrcNativeVariant is not a valid VARIANT type.

NotSupportedException

pSrcNativeVariant has an unsupported type.

GetObjectForNativeVariant returns a managed object corresponding to a raw pointer to an unmanaged VARIANT type. The interop marshaler performs the identical transformation when exposing a VARIANT type to managed code. GetObjectForNativeVariant provides the opposite functionality of Marshal.GetNativeVariantForObject.

When the VARIANT type is VT_ERROR, GetObjectForNativeVariant returns an object of type Int32 instead of UInt32.

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.
