Description

JsonArray::add() appends a value to the array pointed by the JsonArray.

If the JsonArray is null, this function does nothing.

Signatures

bool add(bool value) const;

bool add(float value) const;
bool add(double value) const;

bool add(signed char value) const;
bool add(signed long value) const;
bool add(signed int value) const;
bool add(signed short value) const;
bool add(unsigned char value) const;
bool add(unsigned long value) const;
bool add(unsigned int value) const;
bool add(unsigned short value) const;

bool add(char *value) const;                      // stores a copy
bool add(const char *value) const;                // stores a pointer โš ๏ธ
bool add(const __FlashStringHelper *value) const; // stores a copy

bool add(const String &value) const;       // stores a copy
bool add(const std::string &value) const;  // stores a copy
bool add(const Printable& value);          // stores a copy
bool add(std::string_view value);          // stores a copy

bool add(JsonArray array) const;          // stores a deep copy
bool add(JsonObject object) const;        // stores a deep copy
bool add(JsonVariant variant) const;      // stores a deep copy
bool add(const JsonDocument& doc) const;  // stores a deep copy

bool add(TEnum value) const;  // alias of add(int)
bool add(T value) const;      // calls user-defined function

JsonArray   add<JsonArray>() const;    // ๐Ÿ†• adds a new empty array
JsonObject  add<JsonObject>() const;   // ๐Ÿ†• adds a new empty object
JsonVariant add<JsonVariant>() const;  // ๐Ÿ†• adds a new null variant

Arguments

value: the value to add to the array.

All types are stored by copy, except const char* which is stored by pointer.

Return value

JsonArray::add() return a bool that tells whether the operation was successful or not:

  • true if the value was successfully added.
  • false if there was not enough memory in the JsonDocument.

User-defined types

JsonArray::add() supports user-defined types by calling convertToJson(). For example, to support tm, you must define:

bool convertToJson(const tm& src, JsonVariant dst) {
  char buf[32];
  strftime(buf, sizeof(buf), "%FT%TZ", &src);
  return dst.set(buf);
}

Example

JsonDocument doc;
JsonArray array = doc.to<JsonArray>();
array.add("hello");
array.add(3.14156);
serializeJson(doc, Serial);

will write

["hello",3.14156]
