Gets the run-time class structure from the name of a C++ class.

RUNTIME_CLASS(class_name )


The actual name of the class (not enclosed in quotation marks).

RUNTIME_CLASS returns a pointer to a CRuntimeClass structure for the class specified by class_name. Only CObject-derived classes declared with DECLARE_DYNAMIC, DECLARE_DYNCREATE, or DECLARE_SERIAL will return pointers to a CRuntimeClass structure.

For more information, see CObject Class Topics.

CRuntimeClass* prt = RUNTIME_CLASS(CAge);
ASSERT(strcmp(prt->m_lpszClassName, "CAge") == 0);
