Return Value

An object that can be passed to a parameter of type Char.
This function converts value to Char and packages the result to retain its numeric type across the host-script boundary. It may be useful for passing arguments to Char parameters if the script engine does not support that type natively.
The following code adds an element of type Char to a strongly typed list. It assumes that an instance of ExtendedHostFunctions is exposed under the name "host" (see AddHostObject).
// import types
var ElementT = host.type("System.Char");
var ListT = host.type("System.Collections.Generic.List", ElementT);
// create a list
var list = host.newObj(ListT);
// add a list element
