A type for representing a Boolean value.

Details

The bool type is used to signal one of two distinct options (either true or false). Its semantics vary widely depending on the context.

Examples

FindFirstChild has a boolean argument, recursive. When true, the method operates recursively:

local folder = Instance.new("Folder")
local middle = Instance.new("Folder", folder)
middle.Name = "Middle"
local inner = Instance.new("Folder", middle)
inner.Name = "Inner"

print(folder:FindFirstChild("Inner", false))
--> nil

print(folder:FindFirstChild("Inner", true))
--> Inner
