Library: JSON
Package: JSON

Description

Class that can be used to search for a value in a JSON object or array.

Member Summary

Member Functions: find, findArray, findObject, findValue

Constructors

Query

Query(
    const Dynamic::Var & source
);

Creates a Query/

Source must be JSON Object, Array, Object::Ptr, Array::Ptr or empty Var. Any other type will trigger throwing of InvalidArgumentException.

Creating Query holding Ptr will typically result in faster performance.

Destructor

~Query virtual

virtual ~Query();

Destroys the Query.

Member Functions

find

Dynamic::Var find(
    const std::string & path
) const;

Searches a value.

Example: "person.children[0].name" will return the the name of the first child. When the value can't be found an empty value is returned.

findArray

Array::Ptr findArray(
    const std::string & path
) const;

Search for an array.

When the array can't be found, a zero Ptr is returned; otherwise, a shared pointer to internally held array is returned. If array (as opposed to a pointer to array) is held internally, a shared pointer to new (heap-allocated) Object is returned; this may be expensive operation.

findArray

Array & findArray(
    const std::string & path,
    Array & obj
) const;

Search for an array.

If array is found, it is assigned to the Object through the reference passed in. When the array can't be found, the provided Object is emptied and returned.

findObject

Object::Ptr findObject(
    const std::string & path
) const;

Search for an object.

When the object can't be found, a zero Ptr is returned; otherwise, a shared pointer to internally held object is returned. If object (as opposed to a pointer to object) is held internally, a shared pointer to new (heap-allocated) Object is returned; this may be expensive operation.

findObject

Object & findObject(
    const std::string & path,
    Object & obj
) const;

Search for an object.

If object is found, it is assigned to the Object through the reference passed in. When the object can't be found, the provided Object is emptied and returned.

findValue inline

template < typename T > T findValue(
    const std::string & path,
    const T & def
) const;

Searches for a value will convert it to the given type. When the value can't be found or has an invalid type the default value will be returned.

findValue inline

std::string findValue(
    const char * path,
    const char * def
) const;

Searches for a value will convert it to the given type. When the value can't be found or has an invalid type the default value will be returned.
