$sanitizer->bool() method

Convert the given value to a boolean

This differs from regular boolean type conversion in the following ways:

  • This method will recognize things like the strings "false" or "0" representing a boolean false.
  • If given an object, it will convert the object to a string before determining what boolean value it should represent.
  • If given an array, it returns false if the array contains zero items.


$bool = $sanitizer->bool($value);
