Property Value

The Type of the COM object represented by this component, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) for non-COM objects.

The ComObjectType property returns a type that can be passed to the AddProvider(TypeDescriptionProvider,Type) method to define a type description provider for COM types.

The ComObjectType property and other members in this class replace the functionality in the obsolete IComNativeDescriptorHandler interface. To implement a mapping layer between a COM object and TypeDescriptor, add a TypeDescriptionProvider to handle type ComObjectType.
