Json object - get a property without quotation marks

I have followed instructions in “Ninox HTTP Calls” manual where it says


...JSON objects.

Get a property
The dot notation gives easy access to properties. Examples:

response.result.fields.'First Name'...


But when I tried to get a value containing string value ob.key it returned me string inside quotation marks. To get rid of them I used substr(text(ob.key), 1, length(text(ob.key)) - 2) 

It is a lot of extra functions just to get a value as it had to be, so maybe I am doing something wrong?

P.S. As far as I experimented I can see that there is currently no support for updating values inside arrays or objects after they have been declared. I am right? For example array[0] := value or item(array,0) := value or object[“key”] := value or object.key := value

P.S.S. How do you put " " and ' ' on an iPad? Because those keys that are in its keyboard enter “ “ and ‘ ‘ . And because Ninox doesnt approve that, every time I need to select somewhere, copy and paste it. I have keyboard set to English (UK) in settings.

    You can book a screensharing session with me via this link:


  • Keyboard strokes

    " is done by pressing and holding the (? Key)

    ' is done by pressing and holding the (! Key)

    I hope this helps.

     I found that even on my PC I could not get the proper quotation marks.  If somebody could help me with getting my PC keyboard to generate the appropriate quotation marks that would be great.

    Do you even Google, bro? Just kidding! Surprisingly, there isn't much information on this that isn't specific to Word or Outlook. Try this...



    or this...


  • Yep, matter fact I do Google. I googled this question before asking it in the Forum. It did not yield any useful results. So here's the question. By the way did I spell Google correctly? LOL
