Marshal.GetObjectForNativeVariant Method (IntPtr)

Note: This API is now obsolete.

Converts a COM VARIANT to an object.

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

[ObsoleteAttribute("GetObjectForNativeVariant(IntPtr) may be unavailable in future releases.")]
public static Object GetObjectForNativeVariant(
	IntPtr pSrcNativeVariant
)

Parameters

pSrcNativeVariant
Type: System.IntPtr

A pointer to a COM VARIANT.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
An object that corresponds to the pSrcNativeVariant parameter.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOleVariantTypeException

pSrcNativeVariant is not a valid VARIANT type.

NotSupportedException

pSrcNativeVariant has an unsupported type.

GetObjectForNativeVariant returns a managed object that corresponds 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.
