Object equivalent for intrinsic type 'String'.

Supported Interfaces


This is useful in the following situations:

  • When an object is needed, instead of an intrinsic value. For example, "roList" maintains a list of objects. If an String is added to roList, it will be automatically wrapped in an roString by the language interpreter. When a function that expects a BrightScript Component as a parameter is passed a string, BrightScript automatically creates the equivalent BrightScript Component.
  • If any object exposes the ifString interface, that object can be used in any expression that expects an intrinsic value.
