operator Type^

Enables conversion from Windows::UI::Xaml::Interop::TypeName to Platform::Type.

Operator Type^(Windows::UI::Xaml::Interop::TypeName typeName)

Returns a Platform::Type when given a Windows::UI::Xaml::Interop::TypeName.

TypeName is the language-neutral Windows Runtime struct for representing type information. Platform::Type is specific to C++ and can’t be passed across the application binary interface (ABI). Here's one use of TypeName, in the Navigate function:

rootFrame->Navigate(TypeName(MainPage::typeid), e->Arguments);

The next example shows how to convert between TypeName and Type.

    // Convert from Type to TypeName
    TypeName tn = TypeName(MainPage::typeid);
    // Convert back from TypeName to Type
    Type^ tx2 = (Type^)(tn);

.NET Framework programs project TypeName as [System.Type].
