Get class type?

I would like to compare a list of component and sort them according to their class type. Is there a method to retrieve the class name from a component? For example Slider or ToggleButton. None of the components have names when I do this sorting so I can’t check them. I’m sure I saw a way to do this some time ago but I couldn’t find anything in the “Component” entry to the manual. Perhaps I missed it.

void print (Component* component) { std::cout << typeid (*component).name() << std::endl; }

Nice one.

Note that this is really slow to execute so it should stay in debug code or just for testing purpose.
If you use that typeid in production code instead of a Visitor pattern or something like that, then you’d better pray for your soul every day at the C++ reformed church :wink:
