The IVarInfo object controls information about the properties contained in the specified variable, such as its name and dispatch identifier, any associated help string, its type and variant type, and whether it is a VTS variable. You can display a variable's properties in a custom wizard that adds variables to a project. Such a wizard must understand the parts of the variable and parse them within the wizard. For an example of a Visual Studio wizard that uses IVarInfo, see Add Member Variable Wizard.


See How to: Interpret Visual C++ Wizard Model Examples for more information about how properties and methods are called in both the HTML and the default.js files of a custom wizard.
