Specifies the fully qualified name of a custom marshaler.

Namespace: System.Runtime.InteropServices

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]

public String MarshalType
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
public var MarshalType : String

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.
