Boolean parameters not working

I guess this is a bug report. When a database table has column of type boolean (or anything non-String), the :param mechanism fails. In a macro I set the :param's value to 'true', and I just get:

org.postgresql.util.PSQLException: ERROR: operator does not exist: boolean = character varying

Evidently the text 'true' is being wrapped in quotes or typecast to a varchar.


Otherwise, thanks for an excellent plugin!

Hi Jeff,

Thank you for your interest in PocketQuery! You're right. Booleans are not actually passed as booleans to the query, but as strings. I tested this locally and found that MySQL seems not to complain about it but translates the values somehow vice-versa. I don't know if I'd call this a but or simply a missing feature. Anyhow, we already have the Patameter Types configuration for queries. I added another type Boolean and you should now be able to mark your parameter as boolean by writing paramName=Boolean in the input Parameter Types next to your query. I created a temporary version for you here. Could you test if this works for you? If so, I'll plan to release this feature with PocketQuery 2.1 in February.

Regards, Felix (Scandio)
