I am a novice when it comes to working with JSON. I didn't even know what it was two weeks ago. However, I have been learning what I can and am experimenting with the Dropbox API.
Through much trial and error, I have been able to connect and use the list_folder function to get back a JSON response. I am able to parse most of it using Filemaker 16's new functions. However one of the keys begins with a dot ".". Specifically, it is ".tag" which returns as values either "file" or "folder". The dot is throwing me off. None of their other keys has this dot. How would I write the JSONGetElement step to retrieve a value where the key is ".tag"? Why would they use the "dot" in the first place?
To get the other values, I am using, for example- JSONGetElement ( $$JSON ; "entries.name" ).
JSONGetElement ( $$JSON ; "entries..tag" ) does not work.
I would greatly appreciate anyone's help with this.
