This example checks if a random player is ducked or not, and if so displays a message in the chat box.

local players = getElementsByType ( "player" )
local randomPlayer = players[math.random(#players)]
if isPedDucked ( randomPlayer ) then
	outputChatBox ( getPlayerName ( randomPlayer ) .. " is currently crouching." )
end

This example creates a function that lets you toggle the crouching state of a ped.

function setPedDucked(ped, bool)
	local alreadyDucked = isPedDucked(ped)
	if (alreadyDucked and not bool) then
		setPedControlState(ped, "crouch", true)
		setTimer(setPedControlState, 50, 1, ped, "crouch", false)
		return true
	elseif (not alreadyDucked and bool) then
		setPedControlState(ped, "crouch", true)
		setTimer(setPedControlState, 50, 1, ped, "crouch", false)
		return true
	end
	return false
end
