To convert a given value to a string

This function will return the data of a field or an array as text. It’s a bit like the function concat().

If you use this function on a multiple-choice field, it will return the hexadecimal value of that field.






string('New Year''s Eve') 

Result: 1640905200000 with the date field New Year’s Eve as Dec 31, 2021

string('Favorite sports') 

Result: d1

(see the example for chosen(), where Basketball, Dancing, Sailing, and Soccer are chosen, but not Climbing)

Note: Unlike text() , the function string() doesn’t take the format into account.
