TypeLibConverter.ConvertAssemblyToTypeLib(Assembly, String, TypeLibExporterFlags, ITypeLibExporterNotifySink) TypeLibConverter.ConvertAssemblyToTypeLib(Assembly, String, TypeLibExporterFlags, ITypeLibExporterNotifySink) TypeLibConverter.ConvertAssemblyToTypeLib(Assembly, String, TypeLibExporterFlags, ITypeLibExporterNotifySink) Method

Definition

Converts an assembly to a COM type library.

public:
 virtual System::Object ^ ConvertAssemblyToTypeLib(System::Reflection::Assembly ^ assembly, System::String ^ strTypeLibName, System::Runtime::InteropServices::TypeLibExporterFlags flags, System::Runtime::InteropServices::ITypeLibExporterNotifySink ^ notifySink);
public object ConvertAssemblyToTypeLib (System.Reflection.Assembly assembly, string strTypeLibName, System.Runtime.InteropServices.TypeLibExporterFlags flags, System.Runtime.InteropServices.ITypeLibExporterNotifySink notifySink);
abstract member ConvertAssemblyToTypeLib : System.Reflection.Assembly * string * System.Runtime.InteropServices.TypeLibExporterFlags * System.Runtime.InteropServices.ITypeLibExporterNotifySink -> obj
override this.ConvertAssemblyToTypeLib : System.Reflection.Assembly * string * System.Runtime.InteropServices.TypeLibExporterFlags * System.Runtime.InteropServices.ITypeLibExporterNotifySink -> obj

Parameters

assembly
Assembly Assembly Assembly

The assembly to convert.

strTypeLibName
String String String

The file name of the resulting type library.

Returns

An object that implements the ITypeLib interface.
