CkJsonArray Ruby Reference Documentation

CkJsonArray

Current Version: 9.5.0.75

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.

Object Creation

obj = Chilkat::CkJsonArray.new()

Properties

DebugLogFilePath
# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
jsonArray.get_DebugLogFilePath(ckStr);
strVal = jsonArray.debugLogFilePath();
jsonArray.put_DebugLogFilePath(strVal);

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
# boolVal is a boolean
boolVal = jsonArray.get_EmitCompact();
jsonArray.put_EmitCompact(boolVal);
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
# boolVal is a boolean
boolVal = jsonArray.get_EmitCrlf();
jsonArray.put_EmitCrlf(boolVal);
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
# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
jsonArray.get_LastErrorHtml(ckStr);
strVal = jsonArray.lastErrorHtml();

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
# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
jsonArray.get_LastErrorText(ckStr);
strVal = jsonArray.lastErrorText();

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
# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
jsonArray.get_LastErrorXml(ckStr);
strVal = jsonArray.lastErrorXml();

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
# boolVal is a boolean
boolVal = jsonArray.get_LastMethodSuccess();
jsonArray.put_LastMethodSuccess(boolVal);
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
# intVal is an integer
intVal = jsonArray.get_Size();
Introduced in version 9.5.0.56

The number of JSON values in the array.

top
Utf8
# boolVal is a boolean
boolVal = jsonArray.get_Utf8();
jsonArray.put_Utf8(boolVal);

When set to true, all "const char *" arguments are interpreted as utf-8 strings. If set to false (the default), then "const char *" arguments are interpreted as ANSI strings. Also, when set to true, and Chilkat method returning a "const char *" is returning the utf-8 representation. If set to false, all "const char *" return values are ANSI strings.

top
VerboseLogging
# boolVal is a boolean
boolVal = jsonArray.get_VerboseLogging();
jsonArray.put_VerboseLogging(boolVal);

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.
