IComponent::put_Type Method

The put_Type method sets an IComponentType object describing the general characteristics of the component.


HRESULT put_Type(
  [in]  IComponentType *pCT


  • pCT [in]
    Pointer to an IComponentType object that specifies the new values for the component.

Return Value

Returns S_OK if successful. If the method fails, error information can be retrieved using the standard COM IErrorInfo interface.


Using the IComponent base class interface, it is possible to set the type to be NULL. If you try to do this with the derived IMPEG2Component class interface, this method will return E_POINTER. The IMPEG2Component object cannot have the base IComponentType class interface as the set type - this will return Type Mismatch (0x80020005).
