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.


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" ))
