Queries named item from an object tree.
You still need functions like JSON.GetStringValue to get back the decoded string.
Works also for arrays where you pass in index.

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


Query properties object and inside it the lastname object and there the value property:

MBS("JSON.GetObjectItemTree"; JSON Test::JSON; "properties"; "lastname"; "value")

Look into object tree, pick addresses, first address, than value and there the content of street:

MBS("JSON.GetStringValue"; MBS( "JSON.GetObjectItemTree"; test::JSON ; "addresses"; 0; "value"; "streetAddress" ))
