Below is a list of data types contained within the CXlOper class.
The Enumeration column contains the value of the private **xltype**
member of CXlOper, which can be tested using
CXlOper::IsOfType.
The method whose name listed in the Test column can be used to determine
if the CXlOper is of the given type.
