Detailed Description

The QMetaClassInfo class provides additional information about a class.

Class information items are simple name--value pairs that are specified using Q_CLASSINFO() in the source code. The information can be retrieved using name() and value(). For example:

class MyClass
{
    Q_OBJECT
    Q_CLASSINFO("author", "Sabrina Schweinsteiger")
    Q_CLASSINFO("url", "http://doc.moosesoft.co.uk/1.0/")

public:
    ...
};

This mechanism is free for you to use in your Qt applications. Qt doesn't use it for any of its classes.
