Detailed Description

A value in JSON can be one of 6 basic types:

JSON is a format to store structured data. It has 6 basic data types:

  • bool Bool

  • double Double

  • string String

  • array Array

  • object Object

  • null Null

A value can represent any of the above data types. In addition, QJsonValue has one special flag to represent undefined values. This can be queried with isUndefined() .

The type of the value can be queried with type() or accessors like isBool() , isString() , and so on. Likewise, the value can be converted to the type stored in it using the toBool() , toString() and so on.

Values are strictly typed internally and contrary to QVariant will not attempt to do any implicit type conversions. This implies that converting to a type that is not stored in the value will return a default constructed return value.

QJsonValueRef

QJsonValueRef is a helper class for QJsonArray and QJsonObject . When you get an object of type QJsonValueRef , you can use it as if it were a reference to a QJsonValue . If you assign to it, the assignment will apply to the element in the QJsonArray or QJsonObject from which you got the reference.

The following methods return QJsonValueRef :

  • QJsonArray ::operator[](qsizetype i)

  • QJsonObject ::operator[](const QString & key) const

Parameters

Creates a QJsonValue of type type.

The default is to create a Null value.

Creates a value of type Bool, with value b.

Creates a value of type String with value s, assuming UTF-8 encoding of the input.

You can disable this constructor by defining QT_NO_CAST_FROM_ASCII when you compile your applications.

Creates a value of type Double, with value v.

This is an overloaded function.

Creates a value of type Double, with value v.

This is an overloaded function.

Creates a value of type Double, with value v. NOTE: the integer limits for IEEE 754 double precision data is 2^53 (-9007199254740992 to +9007199254740992). If you pass in values outside this range expect a loss of precision to occur.

PySide6.QtCore.QJsonValue.Type

This enum describes the type of the JSON value.

Constant

Description

QJsonValue.Null

A Null value

QJsonValue.Bool

A boolean value. Use toBool() to convert to a bool.

QJsonValue.Double

A number value. Use toDouble() to convert to a double, or toInteger() to convert to a qint64.

QJsonValue.String

A string. Use toString() to convert to a QString .

QJsonValue.Array

An array. Use toArray() to convert to a QJsonArray .

QJsonValue.Object

An object. Use toObject() to convert to a QJsonObject .

QJsonValue.Undefined

The value is undefined. This is usually returned as an error condition, when trying to read an out of bounds value in an array or a non existent key in an object.

static PySide6.QtCore.QJsonValue.fromVariant(variant)
Parameters

variant – object

Return type

PySide6.QtCore.QJsonValue

Converts variant to a QJsonValue and returns it.

The conversion will convert QVariant types as follows:

QJsonValue::Map. See toJsonValue() for conversion restrictions and the “stringification” of map keys.

Loss of information and other types

QVariant can carry more information than is representable in JSON. If the QVariant is not one of the types above, the conversion is not guaranteed and is subject to change in future versions of Qt, as the UUID one did. Code should strive not to use any other types than those listed above.

If isNull() returns true, a null QJsonValue is returned or inserted into the list or object, regardless of the type carried by QVariant . Note the behavior change in Qt 6.0 affecting isNull() also affects this function.

A floating point value that is either an infinity or NaN will be converted to a null JSON value. Since Qt 6.0, QJsonValue can store the full precision of any 64-bit signed integer without loss, but in previous versions values outside the range of ±2^53 may lose precision. Unsigned 64-bit values greater than or equal to 2^63 will either lose precision or alias to negative values, so ULongLong should be avoided.

For other types not listed above, a conversion to string will be attempted, usually but not always by calling toString() . If the conversion fails the value is replaced by a null JSON value. Note that toString() is also lossy for the majority of types. For example, if the passed QVariant is representing raw byte array data, it is recommended to pre-encode it to Base64 (or another lossless encoding), otherwise a lossy conversion using fromUtf8() will be used.

Please note that the conversions via toString() are subject to change at any time. Both QVariant and QJsonValue may be extended in the future to support more types, which will result in a change in how this function performs conversions.
