(Delphi ActiveX) Get the Index of a JSON Member

This example demonstrates how to get the index of a given member by name.

{
  "name": "donut",
  "image":
    {
    "fname": "donut.jpg",
    "w": 200,
    "h": 200
    },
  "thumbnail":
    {
    "fname": "donutThumb.jpg",
    "w": 32,
    "h": 32
    }
}

//  The "fname" member is NOT a direct member of the top-level JSON object.

//  member of the "image" object:
