Parameters

Parameter Description Example
json A JSON text or reference. [1,2,3]
Value... The number to be added 5

Result

Returns JSON code or error.

Description

Adds a number to an array.
Same as JSON.AddItemToArray, but calls JSON.CreateNumber automatically for you.

With version 6, you can pass several parameters to add several entries to the array.
When adding to a JSON reference, the function returns that reference number.

This function takes variable number of parameters. Pass as much parameters as needed separated by the semicolon in FileMaker.
Please repeat Value parameter as often as you need.

Examples

Adds an item to array:

MBS( "JSON.AddItemToArray"; "[1,2,3]"; 4)

Example result:
[1, 2, 3, 4]

Add 4 numbers to an array:

MBS( "JSON.AddNumberToArray"; "[]"; 1; 2; 3; 4 )

Example result:
[1, 2, 3, 4]

Add big number:

MBS( "JSON.AddNumberToArray"; "[]"; 12063660878882855000013426248015578834577 )

Example result:
[12063660878882855000013426248015578834577]

Use While loop to create JSON array:

Let ( [
    // Create array object
    j = MBS( "JSON.CreateArrayRef" );
    // make a loop to add numbers
    r = While ( $i = 0 ; $i < 10 ; [ r = MBS( "JSON.AddNumberToArray"; j; $i ); $i = $i + 1 ] ; $i );
    // format the result
    text = MBS( "JSON.Format"; j );
    // free json
    r = MBS( "JSON.Release"; j )
];
// return result as text
  text )
