  • Function: Convert boolean value to string

    Copy/Paste the following code into your global functions and call the function whenever you need to convert a value from a boolean to a string. This is especially useful when you don't know what type the variable in question contains, for example if you are traversing through a table containing both boolean and non-boolean variables.

    Global Function Code:
    Code:
    function BoolToString(value)
    	if type(value) == "boolean" then
    	-- The value is of type boolean
    		if value then
    		-- The boolean value is true, return string "True"
    			return "True";
    		else
    		-- The boolean value is false, return string "False"
    			return "False";
    		end
    	else
    	-- The value is not of type boolean, return unchanged value
    		return value;
    	end
    end
    Function Call (from any event):
    Code:
    New_Value = BoolToString(Old_Value);
