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

The pointer becomes invalid if the underlying JSON object changes.
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.
pointer to the internally stored JSON value if the requested pointer type PointerType fits to the JSON value; nullptr otherwise
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>
4using json = nlohmann::json;
6int main()
8 // create a JSON number
9 json value = 17;
11 // explicitly getting pointers
12 auto p1 = value.get<const json::number_integer_t*>();
13 auto p2 = value.get<json::number_integer_t*>();
14 auto p3 = value.get<json::number_integer_t* const>();
15 auto p4 = value.get<const json::number_integer_t* const>();
16 auto p5 = value.get<json::number_float_t*>();
18 // print the pointees
19 std::cout << *p1 << ' ' << *p2 << ' ' << *p3 << ' ' << *p4 << '\n';
20 std::cout << std::boolalpha << (p5 == nullptr) << '\n';
ValueType value(const typename object_t::key_type &key, const ValueType &default_value) const
