General functions also for variables

I saw that there are some general functions for expressions (like toLower, toUpper, Replace…). Sometimes it would be very useful to have also some functions available for variables (I would mostly vote for replacement-function base on a regular expression). Is this possible?

Hi Albrecht,

We have recently been working on some significant updates to the expression engine which we hope to release in the couple of weeks. This will include a function for converting the variable to an expression type, therefore allowing any functions associated with that type. You’ll then be able to do something like $Utils.GetString(%varname%).toUpper()$. We’re also adding extra functions and function chaining.
