How to evaluate a string?

1 New Member
Hi,

Is it possible to evaluate a string to get a logical output?
For Eg.

var string1 = "true && false || true"

Is there any method that i can use to evaluate this string and get an logical output? The scenario is that I'm generating the string dynamically with values picked from a database, and combine all those values into teh string.

Thanks in Advance,

Welcome to TSDN

Perhaps you could use the eval function.

Essentially I want to be able to have a string that looks like this "True AND True AND True" and evaluate that to a boolean which in this case would be True. Another example would be "(True or False) AND True" would be True. The reason for this is...
