cast<D2 extends Object> method

Expression<D2> cast<D2 extends Object>([
  1. BaseSqlType<D2>? type

Generates a CAST(expression AS TYPE) expression.

Note that this does not do a meaningful conversion for drift-only types like bool or DateTime. Both would simply generate a CAST AS INT expression.

The optional type parameter can be used to specify the SQL type to cast to. This is mainly useful for CustomSqlTypes. For types supported by drift, DriftSqlType.forType will be used as a default.


Expression<D2> cast<D2 extends Object>([BaseSqlType<D2>? type]) {
  return _CastInSqlExpression<D, D2>(
      this, type ?? DriftSqlType.forType<D2>());
