Definition

Provides COM objects with version-independent access to the GetType methods.

Overloads

GetType(String, Boolean, Boolean) GetType(String, Boolean, Boolean) GetType(String, Boolean, Boolean) GetType(String, Boolean, Boolean)

Provides COM objects with version-independent access to the GetType(String, Boolean, Boolean) method.

GetType(String, Boolean) GetType(String, Boolean) GetType(String, Boolean) GetType(String, Boolean)

Provides COM objects with version-independent access to the GetType(String, Boolean) method.

GetType() GetType() GetType() GetType()

Provides COM objects with version-independent access to the GetType() method.

GetType(String) GetType(String) GetType(String) GetType(String)

Provides COM objects with version-independent access to the GetType(String) method.

Remarks

This method is for access to managed classes from unmanaged code, and should not be called from managed code.

The GetType methods get the Type object that represents the specified type.

GetType(String, Boolean, Boolean) GetType(String, Boolean, Boolean) GetType(String, Boolean, Boolean) GetType(String, Boolean, Boolean)

Provides COM objects with version-independent access to the GetType(String, Boolean, Boolean) method.

public:
 Type ^ GetType(System::String ^ name, bool throwOnError, bool ignoreCase);
public Type GetType (string name, bool throwOnError, bool ignoreCase);
abstract member GetType : string * bool * bool -> Type
Public Function GetType (name As String, throwOnError As Boolean, ignoreCase As Boolean) As Type

Parameters

name
String String String String

The full name of the type.

throwOnError
Boolean Boolean Boolean Boolean

true to throw an exception if the type is not found; false to return null.

ignoreCase
Boolean Boolean Boolean Boolean

true to ignore the case of the type name; otherwise, false.

Returns

A Type object that represents the specified class.

Remarks

This method is for access to managed classes from unmanaged code, and should not be called from managed code.

The GetType method gets the Type object with the specified name in the assembly instance, with the options of ignoring the case, and of throwing an exception if the type is not found.
