class-reference type

In Delphi operations can be performed on a class itself, rather than on instances of a class. With TClass references to classes can be declared and used. CBuilder has as counterpart to Delphi's TClass:

typedef TMetaClass* TClass

For example:


TMyClass = class of TFoo;


function TBar.GetClass : TMyClass;
result := TMyClass;

is translated to:

typedef TMetaClass* /* TFoo */ TMyClass;

TMetaClass * __fastcall TBar::GetClass ( )
TMetaClass * result;
result = __classid ( TMyClass );
return result;

But some of the possibilities of Delphi to operate with such class references are not translated correctly yet by Delphi2Cpp or even cannot be translated at all.
