JsonArray Delphi DLL Reference Documentation

JsonArray

Current Version: 9.5.0.73

Represents a JSON array, which contains an ordered list of JSON values, where each value can be a string, number, JSON object, JSON array, true, false, or null.

Create/Dispose

var
myObject: HCkJsonArray;

begin
myObject := CkJsonArray_Create();

// ...

CkJsonArray_Dispose(myObject);
end;
function CkJsonArray_Create: HCkJsonArray; stdcall;

Creates an instance of the HCkJsonArray object and returns a handle (i.e. a Pointer). The handle is passed in the 1st argument for the functions listed on this page.

procedure CkJsonArray_Dispose(handle: HCkJsonArray); stdcall;

Objects created by calling CkJsonArray_Create must be freed by calling this method. A memory leak occurs if a handle is not disposed by calling this function.

Properties

DebugLogFilePath
procedure CkJsonArray_getDebugLogFilePath(objHandle: HCkJsonArray; outPropVal: HCkString); stdcall;
procedure CkJsonArray_putDebugLogFilePath(objHandle: HCkJsonArray; newPropVal: PWideChar); stdcall;
function CkJsonArray__debugLogFilePath(objHandle: HCkJsonArray): PWideChar; stdcall;

If set to a file path, causes each Chilkat method or property call to automatically append it's LastErrorText to the specified log file. The information is appended such that if a hang or crash occurs, it is possible to see the context in which the problem occurred, as well as a history of all Chilkat calls up to the point of the problem. The VerboseLogging property can be set to provide more detailed information.

This property is typically used for debugging the rare cases where a Chilkat method call hangs or generates an exception that halts program execution (i.e. crashes). A hang or crash should generally never happen. The typical causes of a hang are:

  1. a timeout related property was set to 0 to explicitly indicate that an infinite timeout is desired,
  2. the hang is actually a hang within an event callback (i.e. it is a hang within the application code), or
  3. there is an internal problem (bug) in the Chilkat code that causes the hang.

EmitCompact
function CkJsonArray_getEmitCompact(objHandle: HCkJsonArray): wordbool; stdcall;
procedure CkJsonArray_putEmitCompact(objHandle: HCkJsonArray; newPropVal: wordbool); stdcall;
Introduced in version 9.5.0.64

If True then the Emit method outputs in the most compact form possible (a single-line with no extra whitespace). If False, then emits with whitespace and indentation to make the JSON human-readable.

The default value is True.

top
EmitCrlf
function CkJsonArray_getEmitCrlf(objHandle: HCkJsonArray): wordbool; stdcall;
procedure CkJsonArray_putEmitCrlf(objHandle: HCkJsonArray; newPropVal: wordbool); stdcall;
Introduced in version 9.5.0.64

If True then the Emit method uses CRLF line-endings when emitting the non-compact (pretty-print) format. If False, then bare-LF's are emitted. (The compact format emits to a single line with no end-of-line characters.) Windows systems traditionally use CRLF line-endings, whereas Linux, Mac OS X, and other systems traditionally use bare-LF line-endings.

The default value is True.

top
LastErrorHtml
procedure CkJsonArray_getLastErrorHtml(objHandle: HCkJsonArray; outPropVal: HCkString); stdcall;
function CkJsonArray__lastErrorHtml(objHandle: HCkJsonArray): PWideChar; stdcall;

Provides information in HTML format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

top
LastErrorText
procedure CkJsonArray_getLastErrorText(objHandle: HCkJsonArray; outPropVal: HCkString); stdcall;
function CkJsonArray__lastErrorText(objHandle: HCkJsonArray): PWideChar; stdcall;

Provides information in plain-text format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

top
LastErrorXml
procedure CkJsonArray_getLastErrorXml(objHandle: HCkJsonArray; outPropVal: HCkString); stdcall;
function CkJsonArray__lastErrorXml(objHandle: HCkJsonArray): PWideChar; stdcall;

Provides information in XML format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

top
LastMethodSuccess
function CkJsonArray_getLastMethodSuccess(objHandle: HCkJsonArray): wordbool; stdcall;
procedure CkJsonArray_putLastMethodSuccess(objHandle: HCkJsonArray; newPropVal: wordbool); stdcall;
Introduced in version 9.5.0.52

Indicate whether the last method call succeeded or failed. A value of True indicates success, a value of False indicates failure. This property is automatically set for method calls. It is not modified by property accesses. The property is automatically set to indicate success for the following types of method calls:

  • Any method that returns a string.
  • Any method returning a Chilkat object, binary bytes, or a date/time.
  • Any method returning a standard boolean status value where success = True and failure = False.
  • Any method returning an integer where failure is defined by a return value less than zero.

Note: Methods that do not fit the above requirements will always set this property equal to True. For example, a method that returns no value (such as a "void" in C++) will technically always succeed.

top
Size
function CkJsonArray_getSize(objHandle: HCkJsonArray): Integer; stdcall;
Introduced in version 9.5.0.56

The number of JSON values in the array.

top
VerboseLogging
function CkJsonArray_getVerboseLogging(objHandle: HCkJsonArray): wordbool; stdcall;
procedure CkJsonArray_putVerboseLogging(objHandle: HCkJsonArray; newPropVal: wordbool); stdcall;

If set to True, then the contents of LastErrorText (or LastErrorXml, or LastErrorHtml) may contain more verbose information. The default value is False. Verbose logging should only be used for debugging. The potentially large quantity of logged information may adversely affect peformance.

top
Version
procedure CkJsonArray_getVersion(objHandle: HCkJsonArray; outPropVal: HCkString); stdcall;
function CkJsonArray__version(objHandle: HCkJsonArray): PWideChar; stdcall;

Version of the component/library, such as "9.5.0.63"
