This article was moved to MDriven Wiki – ClassFromString
When going meta it is sometimes interesting to treat your system types as strings – and then be able to treat those strings as types again.
If you have a type you use the operator AsString to treat it as a string.
Until now there was no way to go from a string back to a type. Now there is : ClassFromString.

The result is a collection of strings with the selected subclasses.
