Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
public string MarshalType

You can use either the MarshalType or MarshalAsAttribute.MarshalTypeRef field specify a custom marshaler type for the attributed parameter, field, or return type. The MarshalType field enables you to specify a string representing the fully qualified name of a custom marshaler. It is useful for late-bound references, but is less preferred than MarshalTypeRef for specifying a custom marshaler. For additional information about creating and using custom marshalers, see Custom Marshaling.
