JSON.ToXML

Converts JSON to XML.

Component Version macOS Windows Linux Server FileMaker iOS SDK
JSON 10.3 ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ✅ Yes
MBS( "JSON.ToXML"; json { ; RootNodeName } )   More

Parameters

RootNodeName The root node name to use. "test" Optional

Result

Returns XML text or error.

Description

Converts JSON to XML.
Walks over nodes in JSON and adds them to XML.

This function does not perfectly reverse XML.ToJSON, but it comes close.

Changes in version 10.4: If root node name parameter is empty and the JSON is an object with one entry, we take this as root element.

Examples

Convert some JSON:

MBS( "JSON.ToXML"; "{\"first\": \"Peter\", \"age\": 38}"; "test" )

Example result:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<test>
  <first>Peter</first>
  <age>38</age>
</test>
