Parameters

Argument Type Definition and Requirements

value

Any

The value to attempt to convert to a string type.

Returns

A string type of value.

Examples

The query below executes an array of independent ToString operations and returns the results in an array. The result array position matches the execution array position. The first operation converts a floating point literal to a string. The second operation takes an integer literal and converts it to a string. The third operation converts a date to a string.

client.Query(
  Arr(ToStringExpr(1234.5678),
      ToStringExpr(true),
      ToStringExpr(Date("2018-06-06")),
      ToStringExpr(null),
      ToStringExpr(Time("2015-02-20T06:30:00Z"))));
System.out.println(
        client.query(Arr(
                ToString(Value(1234.5678)),
                ToString(Value(true)),
                ToString(Date("2018-06-06")),
                ToString(null),
                ToString(Time("2015-02-20T06:30:00Z"))
        )).get());
result, _ := client.Query(
    f.Arr(f.ToString(1234.5678),
          f.ToString(true),
          f.ToString(f.Date("2018-06-06")),
          f.ToString(f.Null()),
          f.ToString(f.Time("2015-02-20T06:30:00Z"))))
