Json.FromValue(value as any, optional encoding as nullable number) as binary


Produces a JSON representation of a given value value with a text encoding specified by encoding. If encoding is omitted, UTF8 is used. Values are represented as follows:

Null, text and logical values are represented as the corresponding JSON types.
Numbers are represented as numbers in JSON, except that #infinity, -#infinity and #nan are converted to null.
Lists are represented as JSON arrays.
Records are represented as JSON objects.
Tables are represented as an array of objects.
Dates, times, datetimes, datetimezones and durations are represented as ISO-8601 text.
Binary values are represented as base-64 encoded text.
Types and functions produce an error.

Example 1

Convert a complex value to JSON.

Text.FromBinary(Json.FromValue([A={1, true, "3"}, B=#date(2012, 3, 25)]))  
Equals: "{""A"":[1,true,""3""],""B"":""2012-03-25""}"
