Hi

I have a JSON file i'm trying to read in. I was jumbling through it when I got completely stuck.
In the file below it's the layers bit that i'm stuck on, in it is the tiles part and all I seem to do is read the the first element of the tiles array.



The code im using is



Im just not sure how to move onto the next array element or if the JSON file is not standard.

Many thanks

Scotty

A link to the json library you're using would help as I have no clue what commands are used for reading json files.

XML Parser V.2

Its almost certainly Madbit's library that he is using by the looks of those commands:

First of all, thank you for using my library.

I changed your code a little, I think it could work that way. I didn't test it.
Otherwise I have seen only a small mistake. You tried with jsonGetObjectValueById to read a value from an array that only reads values from an object.

Hi MadBit

Your JSON library is a great addition to AGK.
I have tested your code, which is of great help for me. You state the following.

Quote: "for y =0 to (rowCount-1) // -1 because agk counts up to and including 'rowCount'. That would be one too many. "

Quote: "for x = 0 to (columnCount-1)"


I have found that is you use the -1 it misses the last item in the array so I took that out.

Also i've added jsonGetValueAsInteger(docId,t,10) to get the value out of the array.

I really appreciate you help and great library.

Many thanks

Ohh, that's my fault. I switch so often between C++ -> AgkBasic -> C# that I confuse some things.
Sorry.
But glad I could help.
