operator Type^

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


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

Return Value

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 Equivalent

.NET Framework programs project TypeName as System.Type.
