How can I convert a JsonObject to a JSON String?

user3488393 Source

I'm trying to convert a struct and the data it contains into a legitimate JSON String. I work in Unreal Engine in C++.

Struct I'm trying to convert:

USTRUCT()
struct DATALOGGING_API FGURaaSDataStruct
{
    GENERATED_USTRUCT_BODY()
public:
    UPROPERTY()
        FString id_session = "test";
    UPROPERTY()
        TArray<FData> data;
};

Struct that is used in the previous struct:

USTRUCT()
struct DATALOGGING_API FData
{
    GENERATED_USTRUCT_BODY()
public:
    UPROPERTY()
        FString data;
    UPROPERTY()
        FString tag1;
    UPROPERTY()
        FString tag2;
    UPROPERTY()
        FString tag3;
    UPROPERTY()
        FString tag4;
    UPROPERTY()
        TArray<FString> additional_tags;
    UPROPERTY()
        FString time;
};

Current aproach: (JsonObject - UE4 specific code)

FGURaaSDataStruct tObj = FGURaaSDataStruct();
    TSharedPtr<FJsonObject> jsonObject = FJsonObjectConverter::UStructToJsonObject<FGURaaSDataStruct>(tObj);

The JsonObject generated here contains all the information necessary to create a Json String, ideally I would like to have a simple way to convert this JsonObject into an JSON String.

This will serialize the Json to OutputString which you are then free to do whatever you want.

For more information, see Using Json in Unreal Engine 4.

void  FStructToJsonString(FStructXXX _myStruct) {

    TSharedPtr<FJsonObject> JsonObject = MakeShareable(new FJsonObject);

    JsonObject->SetStringField("param1", _myStruct.param1);
    JsonObject->SetStringField("param2", _myStruct.param2);

    FString OutputString;
    TSharedRef< TJsonWriter<> > Writer = TJsonWriterFactory<>::Create(&OutputString);
    FJsonSerializer::Serialize(JsonObject.ToSharedRef(), Writer);

    UE_LOG(LogTemp, Warning, TEXT("resulting jsonString -> %s"), *OutputString);
}
