Default How to Handle VARIANT return type

Hi guys

Please help me out here. I never used VARIANT.
I tried to read about it ,but can not understand properly.Here is my problem.

I am using a activeX in my program .
There is a method of activeX like this.

VARIANT AcquireScanChannelData( BOOL Input = true);

Which Returns VARIANT .

If input is true, it returns a variant that contains a one-dimensional
array of float value (VARIANT structure is defined as VT_12 |

If input is false, it returns a variant that contains a one-dimensional
array of short valued (VARIANT structure is defined as VT_12 |

I need to call function like this AcquireScanChannelData(true)

My problem is that in what data type I should take returning array .

I tried float[] , * float ,but nothing working
It gives in error like
error C2440: '=' : cannot convert from 'System::Object __gc *' to

error C2440: '=' : cannot convert from 'System::Object __gc *' to

Please help me out here ,I am stuck badly.
