Description

Returns a string containing the class name.

By default, the ToString returns a string containing the class name of the instance that is being called.

For example, calling ToString on a TButton instance returns a string containing "TButton".

Note: ToString is intended to be overridden in user-derived classes, to provide consumer objects with a string representation.
