Boolean-Type Attributes


A binary value: either true or false. These values are case sensitive. If no default value is specified, a Boolean type defaults to a value of false.

In the Tinderbox UI, Boolean attributes may often be represented as tick-boxes, e.g. in a note's displayed attributes table. A ticked box equates to true, and and empty box to false.

When coercing a Boolean value—such as an expression result—to Number-type of data, true coerces to 1 and false coerces to 0 (zero).

Default/Empty value

A value of false.

Sorting order
