Examples

The following query converts an array into an object:

client.query(
  q.ToObject([['name', 'Dennis'], ['age', 37]])
)
.then((ret) => console.log(ret))
.catch((err) => console.error(
  'Error: [%s] %s: %s',
  err.name,
  err.message,
  err.errors()[0].description,
))
{ name: 'Dennis', age: 37 }
result = client.query(
  q.to_object([['name', 'Dennis'], ['age', 37]])
)
print(result)
{'name': 'Dennis', 'age': 37}
result, err := client.Query(
	f.ToObject(
		f.Arr{
			f.Arr{"name", "Dennis"},
			f.Arr{"age", 37},
		}))

if err != nil {
	fmt.Fprintln(os.Stderr, err)
} else {
	fmt.Println(result)
}
map[age:37 name:Dennis]
try
{
    Value result = await client.Query(
        ToObject(
            Arr(
                Arr("name", "Dennis"),
                Arr("age", 37)
            )
        )
    );

    Console.WriteLine(result);
}
catch (Exception e)
{
    Console.WriteLine($"ERROR: {e.Message}");
}
ObjectV(name: StringV(Dennis),age: LongV(37))
ToObject([['name', 'Dennis'], ['age', 37]])
{ name: 'Dennis', age: 37 }
