Convert Object or roArray to String

Is there an automatic way to convert an object to a String?

Re: Convert Object or roArray to String

Nevermind, in poking around the examples I found:

Function tostr(any)

Within generalUtils.brs

This seems to do what I want.

Re: Convert Object or roArray to String

Check out librokudev: https://github.com/rokudev

rdSerialize will take most simple data structures (without built in components) and turn it into a string that you can eval to get the data structure back.

rdJSON has both builder and parser functions to correctly turn (most?) JSON into a roku data structure or vice-versa.

Re: Convert Object or roArray to String

I came up with the following:

Function toStr(v As Dynamic, levels = 1 As Integer, debug = 5 As Integer) As String
Log("toStr", 7, "vType:" + type(v) + " levels:" + Stri(levels), debug)
out = ""
if v = invalid return "invalid"
if type(v)= "roString" return v
if type(v) = "roFloat" OR type(v) = "Float" return Str(v)
if type(v) = "roInt" OR type(v) = "Integer" return Stri(v)
if type(v) = "roTimespan" return Stri(v.TotalMilliseconds()) + "ms"
if type(v) = "roDateTime" return Stri(v.asSeconds())
If type(v) = "roBoolean" Then
if(v) Then return "True" Else return "False"
End If
If type(v) = "roArray" Then
If levels > 0 Then
i = 0
out = chr(11) + "--- Start roArray ---" + chr(13) + chr(10)
for each e in v
out = out + chr(11) + "[" + Stri(i) + "]" + toStr(e, levels - 1) + chr(13) + chr(10)
i = i + 1
next
out = out + chr(11) + "--- End roArray ---" + chr(13) + chr(10)
return out
Else
return "{roArray}"
EndIf
End If
If type(v) = "roAssociativeArray" Then
out = chr(11) + "--- Start roAssociativeArray ---" + chr(13) + chr(10)
for each e in v
out = out + chr(11) + "[" + e + "]" + toStr(v[e], levels - 1) + chr(13) + chr(10)
next
out = out + chr(11) + "--- End roAssociativeArray ---" + chr(13) + chr(10)
return out
Else
return "{roAssociativeArray}"
End If
return "{unknown}"
End Function

Re: Convert Object or roArray to String

I found similar issue. Is there available any good solution. I checked my variable datatype using Type(Myval). It's roArray and I'm trying to convert with string. I tried above solution add genaraliutilities and Add ToStr() in Code. and Before Adding Utilities Simply I write ToStr() But both way doesn't work.

Is there any solution for this?
