Remarks

After setting ComplexType, you can use GetComplex to read an incoming integer, real, or Complex number as instance of your class, and you can use Put to send objects of your class to Mathematica as Complex.

To be suitable, the Type you specify must have have appropriate members. It must have each of the following:

A constructor with one of these signatures:
    (double re, double im)
    (float re, float im)
A method with one of the following signatures:
    double Re()
    double Real()
    float Re()
    float Real()
OR, a property or field:
    double Re
    double Real
    float Re
    float Real
A method with one of the following signatures:
    double Im()
    double Imag()
    double Imaginary()
    float Im()
    float Imag()
    float Imaginary()
OR, a property or field:
    double Im
    double Imag
