    Summary:

    Question about TvBusinessLayer operation.

    Description:

    For TV-Server plugin devs, may be could it be interesting to have differents type than String ?
    Maybe a layer.GetSettingAsBool ability, for example ?

    For the moment, two ways to get a parameter stored in TV-Server :
    Code (Text):
    1. String Anotherthing = layer.GetSetting("Anotherthing").Value;
    or
    Code (Text):
    1. TvBusinessLayer layer = new TvBusinessLayer();
    2. String Something = layer.GetSetting("Something", "Nothing").Value;
    Then, if we have boolean type like checked boxes, ...., we have to convert all variables as string.
    What do you think about ?
    Is it possible to add it in TvBusinessLayer, please ?
