Checks if JSON text is valid.
This parses the JSON text and returns 1 on success or 0 on failure.

This checks if the given text is a valid JSON fragment and can be e.g. added as value to a JSON object or array. So this returns 1 for proper formatted boolean, number and text pieces, too.


Checks validity:

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

Example result: 1

Checks with error:

MBS( "JSON.IsValid"; "[1,hello,3]" )

Example result: 0

Check number:

MBS("JSON.IsValid"; 123)

Example result: 1
