Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Test Objects Using TypeName

You can determine the class of an object using the TypeName function instead of the If TypeOf statement. Use the TypeOf statement to determine the type of object:
If TypeOf myObject is myType then
        ... do something
End If
You can do the same with this code:
if TypeName(myObject) = "myType" Then
        ....do something ....
End If
The advantage is that you don't have to include in your project all the classes (or OCXs) that you manage. This is a good approach when writing general purpose routines, and moreover, you can use TypeName in compound tests and Select Case blocks.
