bool to Any... How?

bool to Any... How?

bool to Any... How?


I have a CORBA::Any that I'm using to store a bool. This is what I do: (c++)

bool myBool = false;
CORBA::Any myAny;

myAny <<= myBool;

CORBA::Boolean outVal;

myAny >>= CORBA::Any::to_boolean( outVal )

This isn't working!

Any ideas why?

RE: bool to Any... How?

try this:
myAny >>= CORBA::Any::to_boolean( myBool )

Compiler catches it, complains that there's no constructor that takes the source type.

I got it

    CORBA::Any myAny;
    CORBA::Boolean corbaBool1;
    corbaBool1 = true;

    myAny <<= CORBA::Any::from_boolean(corbaBool1);

    CORBA::Boolean corbaBool;
    if( myAny >>= CORBA::Any::to_boolean(corbaBool) )
        bool myBool = corbaBool;
        cout << myBool;

I also forgot to run my orb
