Type.GUID Property

Gets the GUID associated with the Type.

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

public abstract Guid GUID { get; }
/** @property */
public abstract Guid get_GUID ()

public abstract function get GUID () : Guid

Not applicable.

Property Value

The GUID associated with the Type.

A GUID is associated with a type using the GuidAttribute attribute.

The following example creates the class MyClass1 with a public method, creates a Type object corresponding to MyClass1, and gets the Guid structure using the GUID property of the Type class.

using System;

class MyGetTypeFromCLSID
{
    public class MyClass1
    {
        public void MyMethod1()
        {
        }
    }
    public static void Main()
    {
        // Get the type corresponding to the class MyClass.
        Type myType = typeof(MyClass1);
        // Get the object of the Guid.
        Guid myGuid =(Guid) myType.GUID;
        Console.WriteLine("The name of the class is "+myType.ToString());
        Console.WriteLine("The ClassId of MyClass is "+myType.GUID);				
    }
}

import System.*;

class MyGetTypeFromCLSID
{
    public class MyClass1
    {
        public void MyMethod1()
        {
        } //MyMethod1
    } //MyClass1

    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Get the type corresponding to the class MyClass.
        Type myType = MyClass1.class.ToType();

        // Get the object of the Guid.
        Guid myGuid = (Guid)(myType.get_GUID());
        Console.WriteLine("The name of the class is " + myType.ToString());
        Console.WriteLine("The ClassId of MyClass is " + myType.get_GUID());
    } //main
} //MyGetTypeFromCLSID
