Available client side in 1.2 and onwards This function converts one or more variables into a JSON encoded string. You can use this to store the data and then load it again using fromJSON.

Syntax

string toJSON( var arguments ... )

Required Arguments

  • arguments: A list of arguments of any type. Arguments that are elements will be stored as element IDs that are liable to change between sessions. As such, do not save elements across sessions as you will get unpredictable results.

Returns

Returns a JSON formatted string.

Example

This example shows how you can encode an array. The string json should equal "["cat", "mouse", {cat:"hungry",mouse:"food"}]" after executed.

local json = toJSON ( "cat", "mouse", {cat="hungry",mouse="food"} )

Requirements

Minimum supported server 1.0
Minimum supported client 1.1.1-9.03316

Note: Using this function requires the resource to have the above minimum version declared in the meta.xml <min_mta_version> section. e.g. <min_mta_version server="1.0" client="1.1.1-9.03316" />
