    \class QMetaObject

    \brief The QMetaObject class contains meta-information about Qt
    objects.

    \ingroup objectmodel

    The Qt \l{Meta-Object System} in Qt is responsible for the
    signals and slots inter-object communication mechanism, runtime
    type information, and the Qt property system. A single
    QMetaObject instance is created for each QObject subclass that is
    used in an application, and this instance stores all the
    meta-information for the QObject subclass. This object is
    available as QObject::metaObject().

    This class is not normally required for application programming,
    but it is useful if you write meta-applications, such as scripting
    engines or GUI builders.

    The functions you are most likely to find useful are these:
    \list
    \o className() returns the name of a class.
    \o superClass() returns the superclass's meta-object.
    \o method() and methodCount() provide information
       about a class's meta-methods (signals, slots and other member functions).
    \o enumerator() and enumeratorCount() and provide information about
       a class's enumerators.
    \o propertyCount() and property() provide information about a
       class's properties.
    \endlist

    The index functions indexOfMethod(), indexOfEnumerator(), and
    indexOfProperty() map names of member functions, enumerators, or
    properties to indexes in the meta-object. For example, Qt uses
    indexOfMethod() internally when you connect a signal to a slot.

    Classes can also have a list of \e{name}--\e{value} pairs of
    additional class information, stored in QMetaClassInfo objects.
    The number of pairs is returned by classInfoCount(), single pairs
    are returned by classInfo(), and you can search for pairs with
    indexOfClassInfo().

/*!
    Invokes the \a member (a signal or a slot name) on the object \a
    obj. Returns true if the member could be invoked. Returns false
    if there is no such member or the parameters did not match.

    The invocation can be either synchronous or asynchronous,
    depending on \a type:

    \list
    \o If \a type is Qt::DirectConnection, the member will be invoked immediately.

    \o If \a type is Qt::QueuedConnection,
       a QEvent will be sent and the member is invoked as soon as the application
       enters the main event loop.

    \o If \a type is Qt::AutoConnection, the member is invoked
       synchronously if \a obj lives in the same thread as the
       caller; otherwise it will invoke the member asynchronously.
    \endlist

    The return value of the \a member function call is placed in \a
    ret. If the invocation is asynchronous, the return value cannot
    be evaluated. You can pass up to ten arguments (\a val0, \a val1,
    \a val2, \a val3, \a val4, \a val5, \a val6, \a val7, \a val8,
    and \a val9) to the \a member function.

    QGenericArgument and QGenericReturnArgument are internal
    helper classes. Because signals and slots can be dynamically
    invoked, you must enclose the arguments using the Q_ARG() and
    Q_RETURN_ARG() macros. Q_ARG() takes a type name and a
    const reference of that type; Q_RETURN_ARG() takes a type name
    and a non-const reference.

    To asynchronously invoke the
    \l{QPushButton::animateClick()}{animateClick()} slot on a
    QPushButton:

    \code
        QMetaObject::invokeMethod(pushButton, "animateClick",
                                  Qt::QueuedConnection);
    \endcode

    With asynchronous method invocations, the parameters must be of
    types that are known to Qt's meta-object system, because Qt needs
    to copy the arguments to store them in an event behind the
    scenes. If you try to use a queued connection and get the error
    message

    \code
        QMetaObject::invokeMethod: Unable to handle unregistered datatype 'MyType'
    \endcode

    call qRegisterMetaType() to register the data type before you
    call invokeMethod().

    To synchronously invoke the \c compute(QString, int, double) slot on
    some arbitrary object \c obj retrieve its return value:

    \code
        QString retVal;
        QMetaObject::invokeMethod(obj, "compute", Qt::DirectConnection,
                                  Q_RETURN_ARG(QString, retVal),
                                  Q_ARG(QString, "sqrt"),
                                  Q_ARG(int, 42),
                                  Q_ARG(double, 9.7));
    \endcode

    If the "compute" slot does not take exactly one QString, one int
    and one double in the specified order, the call will fail.

    A property has a name() and a type(), as well as various

    If the property is an enumeration, isEnumType() returns true; if the

    available from enumerator().

    The property's values are set and retrieved with read(), write(),
    and reset(); they can also be changed through QObject's set and get
    functions. See QObject::setProperty() and QObject::property() for
    details.

    You get property meta-data through an object's meta-object. See

    \class QMetaClassInfo

    \brief The QMetaClassInfo class provides additional information
    about a class.

    \ingroup objectmodel

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

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

        public:
            ...
        };
    \endcode

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