public static Guid NewGuid()

Return Value

Type: System..::..Guid
A new GUID object.

This is a convenient static method that you can call to get a new Guid.

The chance that the value of the new Guid will be all zeros or equal to any other Guid is very low. You can determine whether a GUID consists of all zeros by comparing it to Guid..::..Empty.
