void nlohmann::basic_json< ObjectType, ArrayType, StringType, BooleanType, NumberIntegerType, NumberUnsignedType, NumberFloatType, AllocatorType, JSONSerializer, BinaryType >::swap ( string_t other)
inline

Exchanges the contents of a JSON string with those of other. Does not invoke any move, copy, or swap operations on individual elements. All iterators and references remain valid. The past-the-end iterator is invalidated.

Parameters
[in,out]otherstring to exchange the contents with
Exceptions
type_error.310when JSON value is not a string; example: "cannot use swap() with boolean"
Complexity
Constant.
Example
The example below shows how strings can be swapped with swap().
1#include <iostream>
2#include <nlohmann/json.hpp>
3
4using json = nlohmann::json;
5
6int main()
7{
8 // create a JSON value
9 json value = { "the good", "the bad", "the ugly" };
10
11 // create string_t
12 json::string_t string = "the fast";
13
14 // swap the object stored in the JSON value
15 value[1].swap(string);
16
17 // output the values
18 std::cout << "value = " << value << '\n';
19 std::cout << "string = " << string << '\n';
20}
ValueType value(const typename object_t::key_type &key, const ValueType &default_value) const
access specified object element with default value
Definition: json.hpp:21500
StringType string_t
a type for a string
Definition: json.hpp:18114
basic_json<> json
default JSON class
Definition: json.hpp:3472

Output (play with this example online):
value = ["the good","the fast","the ugly"]
string = the bad
The example code above can be translated with
