Form variable types

Hi,

I have a question regarding the form variable types:

I use the built in FormRenderer to render the forms and to display them inside our app. When submitted, I use submitStartFormData to start a new instance. I also pass the _type fields of the form.

The method only accepts Map<String, String> for the form data and stores every variable as a string in the instance, independend of the _type arguments. E.g. when I use the "Handle vacation request" example, it's not able to evaluate the expression ${approved} because of its type.

Is there any way to pass booleans and other type or to let the form engine convert them?

Best regards,
Tom
