[%(JsonCircularReference):] The class name in parentheses denotes a Constructor.

Usage notes

The following example catches a circular reference exception and prints the string where the circular reference occurs.

b %jsonCircRefError is object JsonCircularReference %jsa is object json %jsb is object json %jsc is object json %jsa = array('a') %jsb = array('b') %jsc = array('c') %jsa:add(%jsb) %jsb:add(%jsc) %jsc:add(%jsa) try print %jsa:stringify catch JsonCircularReference to %jsonCircRefError print 'Caught Json Circular Reference Error' print %jsa:tostring end try end

Running this example results in:

Caught Json Circular Reference Error ["a",["b",["c",[Circular]]]]
