GCHandle::ToIntPtr Method

Returns the internal integer representation of a GCHandle object.

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

public:
static IntPtr ToIntPtr(
	GCHandle value
)

Parameters

value
Type: System.Runtime.InteropServices::GCHandle

A GCHandle object to retrieve an internal integer representation from.

Return Value

Type: System::IntPtr
An IntPtr object that represents a GCHandle object.

The following code 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 object. The unmanaged function passes the type back to the caller as a parameter of the callback function.
