C++ Equivalent to the VB TypeOf and GetType Operators

There is no direct equivalent in C++ to the VB 'TypeOf' operator, but you can replicate the behavior by testing the result of a 'dynamic_cast'.

VB C++
Dim b As Boolean = TypeOf f Is Foo
v = GetType(w)
bool b = dynamic_cast<Foo*>(f) != nullptr;
v = w::typeid;
