Type.IsCOMObject Property

 

Gets a value indicating whether the Type is a COM object.

Namespace:   System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public bool IsCOMObject { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the Type is a COM object; otherwise, false.

This method returns false for COM interfaces because they are not objects. COM interfaces can be implemented by Microsoft .NET Framework objects.

You can also load a COM class and get a Type object for that COM class by using the Tlbimp.exe (Type Library Importer) tool.

If the current Type represents a constructed generic type, this property applies to the generic type definition from which the type was constructed. For example, if the current Type represents MyGenericType<int> (MyGenericType(Of Integer) in Visual Basic), the value of this property is determined by MyGenericType<T>.

If the current Type represents a type parameter in the definition of a generic type or generic method, this property always returns false.
