Stream.json["key"]

If there is no current JSON object, attempts to parse the string as JSON and fails if unsuccessful. If there is a current JSON object, that object will be reused.

If the top-level element is an object, Stream.json[key] returns a dictionary for that object. If the top-level element is an array, see Stream.json[N].

For example, if the text is:

{ "title":"Becket", "price": 9.95 } 

Then $Text.json["title"] is "Becket".
