Examples

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 namespace System;
ref class MyGetTypeFromCLSID
{
public:
   ref class MyClass1
   {
   public:
      void MyMethod1(){}
   };
};

int main()
{
   
   // Get the type corresponding to the class MyClass.
   Type^ myType = MyGetTypeFromCLSID::MyClass1::typeid;
   
   // Get the Object* of the Guid.
   Guid myGuid = (Guid)myType->GUID;
   Console::WriteLine( "The name of the class is {0}", myType );
   Console::WriteLine( "The ClassId of MyClass is {0}", myType->GUID );
}
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);				
    }
}
Class MyGetTypeFromCLSID

    Public Class MyClass1

        Public Sub MyMethod1()
        End Sub 'MyMethod1

    End Class 'MyClass1

    Public Shared Sub Main()
        ' Get the type corresponding to the class MyClass.
        Dim myType As Type = GetType(MyClass1)
        ' Get the object of the Guid.
        Dim myGuid As Guid = myType.GUID
        Console.WriteLine(("The name of the class is " + myType.ToString()))
        Console.WriteLine(("The ClassId of MyClass is " + myType.GUID.ToString()))
    End Sub 'Main 
End Class 'MyGetTypeFromCLSID

Remarks
