[SOLVED] Qt parsing JSON using QJsonDocument, QJsonObject, QJsonArray


I’m using Qt5. I am trying to obtain values from a json object. Here is what the json object looks like that I am trying to get data from:

    "success": true,
    "properties": [
            "ID": 1001,
            "PropertyName": "McDonalds",
            "key": "00112233445566778899aabbccddeeff"
            "ID": 1002,
            "PropertyName": "Burger King",
            "key": "10112233445566778899aabbccddeeff"
            "ID": 1003,
            "PropertyName": "Taco Bell",
            "key": "20112233445566778899aabbccddeeff"

How can I create three arrays that contain properties[x].ID, properties[x].PropertyName, and properties[x].key in Qt?


Using QScriptEngine I tried this:

QString data = (QString)reply->readAll();

QScriptEngine engine;

QScriptValue result = engine.evaluate(data);

qDebug() << result.toString();

Debug is saying “SyntaxError: Parse error”


I figured it out:

QStringList propertyNames;
QStringList propertyKeys;
QString strReply = (QString)reply->readAll();
QJsonDocument jsonResponse = QJsonDocument::fromJson(strReply.toUtf8());
QJsonObject jsonObject = jsonResponse.object();
QJsonArray jsonArray = jsonObject["properties"].toArray();

foreach (const QJsonValue & value, jsonArray) {
    QJsonObject obj = value.toObject();
