Property Value

Type: System.Object

The object this handle represents.

Exception Condition
InvalidOperationException

The handle was freed, or never initialized.

The following example shows an App class that creates a handle to a managed object using the GCHandle.Alloc method, which prevents the managed object from being collected. A call to the EnumWindows method passes a delegate and a managed object (both declared as managed types, but not shown), and casts the handle to an IntPtr. The unmanaged function passes the type back to the caller as a parameter of the callback function.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
