Description

A shortcut for JsonObject::get() and JsonObject::set(), with a map-like syntax.

Signatures

JsonVariant& operator[](const char* key);
JsonVariant& operator[](char* key); // see Remarks
JsonVariant& operator[](const String& key); // see Remarks
JsonVariant& operator[](const std::string& key); // see Remarks
JsonVariant& operator[](const __FlashStringHelper* key); // see Remarks

const JsonVariant& operator[](const char* key) const;
const JsonVariant& operator[](const String& key) const;
const JsonVariant& operator[](const std::string& key) const;
const JsonVariant& operator[](const __FlashStringHelper* key) const;

Arguments

key: the key that the value will be associated to.

Return value

A reference to the JsonVariant in the object.

Remarks

ArduinoJson make a copy of the string when you call this function with one of the following types:

  • char*
  • String (or std::string)
  • const __FlashStringHelper * (i.e. Flash string)

This duplication causes the JsonBuffer to grow. The memory allocated for the copy will only be freed when the whole JsonBuffer is discarded.

Note that the rules changed in version 5.13.

Example

JsonObject& object = jsonBuffer.createObject();
object["hello"] = "world";
const char* world = object["hello"];
