Yes, sure.

Just look the string up in the table that you created that maps strings to 
meta objects.

The key words here are "that you created". Qt doesn't provide one.

QMetaType::metaObjectForType. That is a table, but it's not populated by 
anything. You'll still need to populate it before you can use it.
