[SOLVED] JSON string not decodable - (Moved)

Recommended Posts

Hi, i'm trying to implement Imgur API functions in an AutoIt program.

I successfully coded the oAuth2 Authentication and i'm testing some Imgur functions.

 

Example : https://api.imgur.com/3/account/me/images

The string received is like :

{"data":[{"id":"fd6f54s","title":null,"description":null,"datetime":1574502473,"type":"image\/png","animated":false,"width":1147,"height":715,"size":53516,"views":18,"bandwidth":963288,"vote":null,"favorite":false,"nsfw":null,"section":null,"account_url":"ACCOUNT","account_id":ACCOUNTID,"is_ad":false,"in_most_viral":false,"has_sound":false,"tags":[],"ad_type":0,"ad_url":"","edited":"0","in_gallery":false,"deletehash":"d6f5sd4fsf","name":"image","link":"https:\/\/i.imgur.com\/fd6f54s.png"}

I'm using JSON.au3 UDF and i don't manage to make it working :

Local $Obj = Json_Decode($hRequestSSL)
Local $Links = Json_Get($Obj, '["data"]["link"]')

The Json_Decode sends in console :

"E:\Portable\Dev\AutoIt3\IncludeP\JSON.au3" (374) : ==> Variable must be of type "Object".:
Return $Object.Keys()
Return $Object^ ERROR

It says it's not an object or i have seen in some UDF that Json_Decode takes a string as parameter.

I don't know what's wrong.

Can you be more specific on where you got the UDF because it seems we are using different versions and I'm seeing different results. For example --

#include <JSON.au3> ; https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/148114-a-non-strict-json-udf-jsmn

$sResponse = '{"data":[{"id":"fd6f54s","title":null,"description":null,"datetime":1574502473,"type":"image\/png","animated":false,"width":1147,"height":715,"size":53516,"views":18,"bandwidth":963288,"vote":null,"favorite":false,"nsfw":null,"section":null,"account_url":"ACCOUNT","account_id":ACCOUNTID,"is_ad":false,"in_most_viral":false,"has_sound":false,"tags":[],"ad_type":0,"ad_url":"","edited":"0","in_gallery":false,"deletehash":"d6f5sd4fsf","name":"image","link":"https:\/\/i.imgur.com\/fd6f54s.png"}'
Json_Dump($sResponse)

give me this output --

+-> .data[0].id  =fd6f54s
+-> .data[0].title  =
+-> .data[0].description  =
+-> .data[0].datetime  =1574502473
+-> .data[0].type  =image/png
+-> .data[0].width  =1147
+-> .data[0].height  =715
+-> .data[0].size  =53516
+-> .data[0].views  =18
+-> .data[0].bandwidth  =963288
+-> .data[0].vote  =
+-> .data[0].nsfw  =
+-> .data[0].section  =
+-> .data[0].account_url  =ACCOUNT
+-> .data[0].account_id  =ACCOUNTID
+-> .data[0].edited  =0
+-> .data[0].deletehash  =d6f5sd4fsf
+-> .data[0].name  =image
+-> .data[0].link  =https://i.imgur.com/fd6f54s.png

and the following runs as expected for me --

#include <JSON.au3> ; https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/148114-a-non-strict-json-udf-jsmn

$sResponse = '{"data":[{"id":"fd6f54s","title":null,"description":null,"datetime":1574502473,"type":"image\/png","animated":false,"width":1147,"height":715,"size":53516,"views":18,"bandwidth":963288,"vote":null,"favorite":false,"nsfw":null,"section":null,"account_url":"ACCOUNT","account_id":ACCOUNTID,"is_ad":false,"in_most_viral":false,"has_sound":false,"tags":[],"ad_type":0,"ad_url":"","edited":"0","in_gallery":false,"deletehash":"d6f5sd4fsf","name":"image","link":"https:\/\/i.imgur.com\/fd6f54s.png"}'
$Obj = Json_Decode($sResponse)
$Links = Json_Get($Obj, '["data"][0]["link"]')
ConsoleWrite($Links & @CRLF)
$Links = Json_Get($Obj, ".data[0].link")
ConsoleWrite($Links & @CRLF)

Woks fine when you use proper keys ;)  Json_Dump will lead the way.

#include <json.au3>
$hRequestSSL = '{"data":[{"id":"fd6f54s","title":null,"description":null,"datetime":1574502473,"type":"image\/png","animated":false,"width":1147,"height":715,"size":53516,"views":18,"bandwidth":963288,"vote":null,"favorite":false,"nsfw":null,"section":null,"account_url":"ACCOUNT","account_id":ACCOUNTID,"is_ad":false,"in_most_viral":false,"has_sound":false,"tags":[],"ad_type":0,"ad_url":"","edited":"0","in_gallery":false,"deletehash":"d6f5sd4fsf","name":"image","link":"https:\/\/i.imgur.com\/fd6f54s.png"}'
Json_Dump($hRequestSSL)
Local $Obj = Json_Decode($hRequestSSL)
Local $Links = json_get($obj, '.data[0].link')
ConsoleWrite('@@ Debug(' & @ScriptLineNumber & ') : $Links = ' & $Links & @CRLF & '>Error code: ' & @error & @CRLF) ;### Debug Console

Yes and also posted in the wrong forum! so maybe a little more checking before doing?

Of course it is, I did it when I posted that last remark as you can see in the post above that as that is auto-magically generated when we do. ;)

I was talking that it had not been done before your last post.

If i could have done it, i would.

      Hi all, I wasnt active in this Forum forum for Years. 😅
      Since I need something with Json in AutoIt i write a little UDF to save a variable to file to read it with another language - and back. After a while until my other script grows i thought - lets integrate all variables wich is possible, because i want have arrays to.
      This is my first public UDF in Autoit - normaly my AutoIt scripts are quick an dirty.... - like the examples for this udf. - someone want to write nice examples?
      I tried to write this UDF properly, cared for processing speed, low mem consumption as possible, a short code, and a high usability without beeing very familiar with arrays.
      What is it for? - convert nearly all types of variables to a json string for saving it in a file or to an ini. Read it back in to a same formated variable and preserv variable types. All array types are supported with nested arrays, the only restriction is ram and array/stringsize - and time if the array is very big. You can use Filters for variable types and some other options.
      If anyone found a bug or any suggestions, please post it.

    • By Ward
      Introduction
      JSON (Javascript Object Notation) is a popular data-interchange format and supported by a lot of script languages. On AutoIt, there is already a >JSON UDF written by Gabriel Boehme. It is good but too slow, and not supports unicode and control characters very well. So I write a new one (and of course, fast one as usual).

      I use a machine code version of JSON parser called "jsmn". jsmn not only supports standard JSON, but also accepts some non-strict JSON string. See below for example.
       
      Important Update!!
      I rename the library from jsmn.au3 to json.au3. All function names are changed, too.
       
      Decoding Function
      Json_Decode($Json) $Json can be a standard or non-standard JSON string. For example, it accepts:
      { server: example.com port: 80 message: "this looks like a config file" } The most JSON data type will be decoded into corresponding AutoIt variable, including 1D array, string, number, true, false, and null. JSON object will be decoded into "Windows Scripting Dictionary Object" retuned from ObjCreate("Scripting.Dictionary"). AutoIt build-in functions like IsArray, IsBool, etc. can be used to check the returned data type. But for Object and Null, Json_IsObject() and Json_IsNull() should be used.

      If the input JSON string is invalid, @Error will be set to $JSMN_ERROR_INVAL. And if the input JSON string is not finish (maybe read from stream?), @Error will be set to $JSMN_ERROR_PART.

      Encoding Function
      Json_Encode($Data, $Option = 0, $Indent = "\t", $ArraySep = ",\r\n", $ObjectSep = ",\r\n", $ColonSep = ": ") $Data can be a string, number, bool, keyword(default or null), 1D arrry, or "Scripting.Dictionary" COM object. Ptr will be converted to number, Binary will be converted to string in UTF8 encoding. Other unsupported types like 2D array, dllstruct or object will be encoded into null.

      $Option is bitmask consisting following constant:
      $JSON_UNESCAPED_ASCII ; Don't escape ascii charcters between chr(1) ~ chr(0x1f) $JSON_UNESCAPED_UNICODE ; Encode multibyte Unicode characters literally $JSON_UNESCAPED_SLASHES ; Don't escape / $JSON_HEX_TAG ; All < and > are converted to \u003C and \u003E $JSON_HEX_AMP ; All &amp;amp;amp;amp;s are converted to \u0026 $JSON_HEX_APOS ; All ' are converted to \u0027 $JSON_HEX_QUOT ; All " are converted to \u0022 $JSON_PRETTY_PRINT ; Use whitespace in returned data to format it $JSON_STRICT_PRINT ; Make sure returned JSON string is RFC4627 compliant $JSON_UNQUOTED_STRING ; Output unquoted string if possible (conflicting with $JSMN_STRICT_PRINT) Most encoding option have the same means like PHP's json_enocde() function. When $JSON_PRETTY_PRINT is set, output format can be change by other 4 parameters ($Indent, $ArraySep, $ObjectSep, and $ColonSep). Because these 4 output format parameters will be checked inside Jsmn_Encode() function, returned string will be always accepted by Jsmn_Decode(). $JSON_UNQUOTED_STRING can be used to output unquoted string that also accetped by Jsmn_Decode().

      $JSON_STRICT_PRINT is used to check output format setting and avoid non-standard JSON output. So this option is conflicting with $JSON_UNQUOTED_STRING.

      Get and Put Functions
      Json_Put(ByRef $Var, $Notation, $Data, $CheckExists = False) Json_Get(ByRef $Var, $Notation) These functions helps user to access object or array more easily. Both dot notation and square bracket notation can be supported. Json_Put() by default will create non-exists objects and arrays. For example:
      Local $Obj Json_Put($Obj, ".foo", "foo") Json_Put($Obj, ".bar[0]", "bar") Json_Put($Obj, ".test[1].foo.bar[2].foo.bar", "Test") Local $Test = Json_Get($Obj, '["test"][1]["foo"]["bar"][2]["foo"]["bar"]') ; "Test" Object Help Functions
      Json_ObjCreate() Json_ObjPut(ByRef $Object, $Key, $Value) Json_ObjGet(ByRef $Object, $Key) Json_ObjDelete(ByRef $Object, $Key) Json_ObjExists(ByRef $Object, $Key) Json_ObjGetCount(ByRef $Object) Json_ObjGetKeys(ByRef $Object) Json_ObjClear(ByRef $Object) These functions are just warps of "Scripting.Dictionary" COM object. You can use these functions if you are not already familiar with it.
       
      == Update 2013/05/19 ==
       
      * Add Jsmn_Encode() option "$JSMN_UNESCAPED_ASCII". Now the default output of Json_Encode() is exactly the same as PHP's json_encode() function (for example, chr(1) will be encoded into u0001).
      $JSON_UNESCAPED_ASCII ; Don't escape ascii charcters between chr(1) ~ chr(0x1f)  
      == Update 2015/01/08 ==
      * Rename the library from jsmn.au3 to json.au3. All function names are changed, too.
      * Add Json_Put() and Json_Get()
      * Add Null support

      So I have been reading on how to use OAuth2 Service accounts(https://developers.google.com/identity/protocols/OAuth2ServiceAccount) and ran into an issue with autoit I can not solve. To keep this short to communicate to the Google API I need to use a JSON Web signature containing
      {Base64url encoded header}.{Base64url encoded claim set}.

      The Header and claim set work fine but I do not know how to convert them to a byte array using autoit. I have looked around on the forums and website but have not found anything that seems to work. Here is my code.
      #include-once #include <Array.au3> #include <Constants.au3> #include <Debug.au3> #include <File.au3> #include "Json.au3" #include <Process.au3> #include <ProgressConstants.au3> #include <String.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include "WinHttp.au3" #include <UnixTime.au3> #include <StringConstants.au3> Global $UnixTime = _TimeGetStamp() $sJWTheader = '{"alg":"RS256","typ":"JWT"}' $sJWTclaimset = '{"iss":"Removed@forprivacy.com","scope":"https://www.googleapis.com/auth/spreadsheets","aud":"https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v4/token","exp":' & $UnixTime + 3600 & ',"iat":' & $UnixTime & '}' Local $taiData = DllStructCreate("BYTE[256]") Local $sText = _base64($sJWTheader)&'.'&_base64($sJWTclaimset) DllStructSetData($taiData, 1, StringToBinary($sText, 4)) Local $bvResult = DllStructGetData($taiData, 1) $sJWTSigature = $bvResult $sJWT = _base64($sJWTheader)&'.'&_base64($sJWTclaimset)&'.'&_base64($sJWTSigature) $POSTHeader = "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" $hOpen = _WinHttpOpen() $hConnect = _WinHttpConnect($hOpen, "https://www.googleapis.com/") $sRead = _WinHttpSimpleSSLRequest($hConnect, "POST", "oauth2/v4/token", Default, "grant_type=urn%3Aietf%3Aparams%3Aoauth%3Agrant-type%3Ajwt-bearer&assertion=" & $sJWT) _WinHttpCloseHandle($hConnect) _WinHttpCloseHandle($hOpen) ConsoleWrite($sRead & @LF) The whole bytes thing is beyond with what I know about auotit. I can't tell what I need to fix.

      You can see my script to POST json and the problem where occurs backslashes before quotations. Second problem is the apperance , there is no new lines for every new value.
      LOOK in attached images!
       
      You can see rest api on the screen and with id = 0 its made my postman and the rest by autoit (with backslashes)
       
      Func jsonSave() ; Make login request to server JSON POST Local $data, $request Local $obj Local $adress = 'http://35.195.249.40:3004/msg' Json_Put($Obj, ".msgName", "Point HPs") Json_Put($Obj, ".msg", "Not pointed correctly") Json_Put($Obj, ".username", "karolek890") Local $Json = Json_Encode($Obj,$JSON_UNESCAPED_SLASHES) ; WITHOUT preetier becouse it makes clashes r n and t only works in autoit $request = _httpRequestBot($adress, 'POST', $Json) ; only get login if correct then success If @error Then Exit MsgBox(0, "Error", "Open method returned @error = " & @error & " and @extended = " & @extended) Else ConsoleWrite("Data to json server posted!") EndIf EndFunc  
      Im using this JSON UDF

      Here's a new version of my Dump.au3 file (dirty). I've recently added support to dissect (dump) as a treeview-like view any string in the variable conforming to a strict JSON grammar, whereever said string is: as a standalone string variable or in an array or a map. AFAICT the only relaxed constraint not implemented here is that numbers in parsed JSON may have leading zeroes, although leading zeroes are forbidden in pure JSON specifications. If required it wouldn't be hard to add this constraint.
      @c.haslam (among others) may find it useful. Use freely.
