Returns the CRuntimeClass structure corresponding to this object's class.
virtual CRuntimeClass* GetRuntimeClass( ) const;
A pointer to the CRuntimeClass structure corresponding to this object's class; never NULL.
There is one CRuntimeClass structure for each CObject-derived class. The structure members are as follows:
LPCSTR m_lpszClassName A null-terminated string containing the ASCII class name.
int m_nObjectSize The size of the object, in bytes. If the object has data members that point to allocated memory, the size of that memory is not included.
UINT m_wSchema The schema number ( – 1 for nonserializable classes). See the IMPLEMENT_SERIAL macro for a description of schema number.
CObject* ( PASCAL* m_pfnCreateObject )( ) A function pointer to the default constructor that creates an object of your class (valid only if the class supports dynamic creation; otherwise, returns NULL).
CRuntimeClass* ( PASCAL* m_pfn_GetBaseClass )( ) If your application is dynamically linked to the AFXDLL version of MFC, a pointer to a function that returns the CRuntimeClass structure of the base class.
CRuntimeClass* m_pBaseClass If your application is statically linked to MFC, a pointer to the CRuntimeClass structure of the base class.
See CObList::CObList for a listing of the CAge class used in all CObject examples.
CAge a(21); CRuntimeClass* prt = a.GetRuntimeClass(); ASSERT(strcmp(prt->m_lpszClassName, "CAge") == 0);
