auto nlohmann::basic_json::get_ptr ( ) -> decltype(std::declval<basic_json_t&>().get_impl_ptr(std::declval<PointerType>()))
inlinenoexcept

Implicit pointer access to the internally stored JSON value. No copies are made.

Warning
Writing data to the pointee of the result yields an undefined state.
Template Parameters
PointerTypepointer type; must be a pointer to array_t, object_t, string_t, boolean_t, number_integer_t, number_unsigned_t, or number_float_t. Enforced by a static assertion.
Returns
pointer to the internally stored JSON value if the requested pointer type PointerType fits to the JSON value; nullptr otherwise
Complexity
Constant.
Example
The example below shows how pointers to internal values of a JSON value can be requested. Note that no type conversions are made and a nullptr is returned if the value and the requested pointer type does not match.
1 #include <iostream>
2 #include <nlohmann/json.hpp>

4 using json = nlohmann::json;

6 int main()
7 {
8  // create a JSON number
9  json value = 17;
10 
11  // explicitly getting pointers
12  auto p1 = value.get_ptr<const json::number_integer_t*>();
13  auto p2 = value.get_ptr<json::number_integer_t*>();
14  auto p3 = value.get_ptr<json::number_integer_t* const>();
15  auto p4 = value.get_ptr<const json::number_integer_t* const>();
16  auto p5 = value.get_ptr<json::number_float_t*>();
17 
18  // print the pointees
19  std::cout << *p1 << ' ' << *p2 << ' ' << *p3 << ' ' << *p4 << '\n';
20  std::cout << std::boolalpha << (p5 == nullptr) << '\n';
21 }
