(ArmA3 1.14) It's recommended to use BIS_fnc_GetCfgData or BIS_fnc_returnConfigEntry to get variable cfg data rather than conditioning via isNumber, isText, isArray, getNumber, getText and getArray combination.
Traditional workaround: _cfg = configFile >> "CfgVehicles" >> _SomeAddonClassName >> "DestructionEffects" >> "Smoke1" >> "type" switch ( true ) do { case (isNumber _cfg): {getNumber _cfg}; case (isText _cfg): {getText _cfg}; case (isArray _cfg): {getArray _cfg;}; default { nil }; }; Recommended workaround: (configFile >> "CfgVehicles" >> _SomeAddonClassName >> "DestructionEffects" >> "Smoke1" >> "type") call BIS_fnc_GetCfgData; To return default value once entry was not found, we can use BIS_fnc_returnConfigEntry instead of BIS_fnc_GetCfgData. e.g. [(configFile >> "CannonFire" >> "LightExp"),"lifeTime",0] call BIS_fnc_returnConfigEntry;//0.5 To compose collected String into Array, use BIS_fnc_getCfgDataArray instead. E.g. (configFile >> "CfgVehicles" >> _SomeAddonClassName >> "DestructionEffects" >> "Smoke1" >> "type") call BIS_fnc_getCfgDataArray;
