Class infromation about objects in TList

As a container, TList stores all its items as a TObject wrapped in some additional information for indexing. If I have a TList of items from various classes, is it possible to find out the class of each item? For example,

TString* foo = "I'm a string";
TNtuple* bar = new TNtuple();
TList myList = new TList();

TIter next(myList);
TObject* obj;
while (obj = next())
  if (obj->WasATString())
      std::cout << (TString) (*obj) << "\n"; // what replaces WasATString()?

Ideally this code goes through myList and picks out only the objects of a certain type. Is there a way to do that?


See TObject::InheritsFrom(const char* classname)

EDIT: You can also use something like: if (obj->IsA() == TString::Class())

Wow, that’s really useful! I’m not sure how I missed that in the documentation. Thanks!
