I am learning the ArduinoJson.h library and creating jsonOject:

JsonObject& prepareResponse(JsonBuffer& jsonBuffer) {
  JsonObject& root = jsonBuffer.createObject();
  JsonArray& tempValues = root.createNestedArray("temperature");
  tempValues.add(t);
  JsonArray& humiValues = root.createNestedArray("humidity");
  humiValues.add(h);
  JsonArray& dewpValues = root.createNestedArray("dewpoint");
  dewpValues.add(pfDew);
  JsonArray& EsPvValues = root.createNestedArray("systemv");
  EsPvValues.add(pfVcc / 1000, 3);
  return root;
}

As per the example given here. However since I am using an ESP8266WebServer to create a server object from ESP8266WebServer.h, I cannot pass a JsonObject to server.send(.....).

no matching function for call to 'ESP8266WebServer::send(int, const char [10], ArduinoJson::JsonObject&)'

void outputJson() {
  StaticJsonBuffer<500> jsonBuffer;
  JsonObject& json = prepareResponse(jsonBuffer);
  writeResponse(client, json);
  server.send ( 200, "text/json", json );
}

void writeResponse(WiFiClient& clnt, JsonObject& json) {
  clnt.println("HTTP/1.1 200 OK");
  clnt.println("Content-Type: application/json");
  clnt.println("Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *");
  clnt.println("Connection: close");
  clnt.println();
  json.prettyPrintTo(clnt);
}

As far as I know, the only way is to serialize the JsonObject to a String:

String createJsonResponse() {
  StaticJsonBuffer<500> jsonBuffer;

  JsonObject &root = jsonBuffer.createObject();
  JsonArray &tempValues = root.createNestedArray("temperature");
  tempValues.add(t);
  JsonArray &humiValues = root.createNestedArray("humidity");
  humiValues.add(h);
  JsonArray &dewpValues = root.createNestedArray("dewpoint");
  dewpValues.add(pfDew);
  JsonArray &EsPvValues = root.createNestedArray("systemv");
  EsPvValues.add(pfVcc / 1000, 3);

  String json;
  root.prettyPrintTo(json);
  return json;
}

void outputJson() {
    server.send(200, "text/json", createJsonResponse());
}

By the way, I recommend that you use the ArduinoJson Assistant to compute the size of the JsonBuffer.

  • thanks I did tried the suggested already but forgot to get rid of the other stuff from outputJson. Thank you very much . greatly appreciated (y) – Ciasto piekarz Nov 23 '17 at 18:30
