I am new to PHP OOP.

I am writing a web app for our company to create Mock API's - which will allow developers to write their code against a Mock API which will return a JSON object.

In its most simple form, it would look like this:

Html Form

Endpoint Name: _________
Method: [GET] [POST] etc
Response Body:_____________________________________________  ( Json Obj )

I understand the basics of creating a class. And defining the information we need. Such as...

class Api {

     private $id;
     private $apiName;
     private $apiMethod;
     private $responseBody;

     public function CreateApi(){
         // Create and insert API into Database


Open in new window

My questions are:

1. If I was to have a Database class, how would I use it withing this API class? For instance, as you see below, I am setting a variable $pdo that I can use. How do I pass this into my Login so I can query the user table?

$host =  'localhost';
  $user = 'root';
  $password = '123456';
  $dbname = 'pdoposts';
  // Set DSN
  $dsn = 'mysql:host='. $host .';dbname='. $dbname;
  // Create a PDO instance
  $pdo = new PDO($dsn, $user, $password);

Open in new window

2. How would I structure my includes in this? For instance, do I require_once db_class on every page? For instance, do I do something like this:


etc , on every page????

3. Lastly, We have this project hosted on Godaddy. I am having problems seeing errors. All I get is a 500 page. I tried the following:

ini_set('display_errors', 1);
ini_set('log_errors', 1);
ini_set('error_log', dirname(__FILE__) . '/error_log.txt');

Open in new window

that is not working. I still only get the 500 error page, not telling me anything.

Can anyone help me out? Thank you.
Dear Experts,
when I use it like below code php for json, it gives me the error although it works.

$myObj->dosya = $dosyaadi;
$myObj->url = "www.mydomain.com/$dosyaadi";

$myJSON = json_encode($myObj);

echo $myJSON;

Open in new window

it writes the Json but it gives the below code? Json works. But it gives error code

I was looking at this code and don't understand why there are so many "JSON.stringify" uses? I'm assuming it is completely wrong. Won't it change the string every time you use it? Also wouldn't it just be OK to only use this line var json = JSON.stringify(xhttp.responseText); since that stringifies everything and remove all the others?
                var idAtSource = Math.random().toString(36).slice(-5);
                var now = new Date().toJSON().slice(0, 10) + " " + new Date(new Date()).toString().split(' ')[4];
                var referralUrl = encodeURIComponent(_satellite.getVar("Full URL"));
                var jsonAction = JSON.stringify(action);

Working with some cascading selects which are json populated.  I need set the select value with a previous selection which has been saved in a mysql table.  

I have found that I can load the select if I pause the page with a alert().

form1.finish.value="<?php echo $row_Quote['Hdw_finish']; ?>";                              // load the finish select

if ("<?php echo $row_Quote['Hdw_finish']; ?>" != "Select Hardware Finish") {          // trigger finish change  

form1.Pull_type.value="<?php echo $row_Quote['Pull_type']; ?>";                               // load Pull_type
if ((form1.Pull_type.value != "Select Pull Type")&&(form1.Pull_type.value != "")) {      // trigger Pull_type change


form1.handle.value="<?php echo $row_Quote['Pull_name']; ?>";                               //  load selected handle


This does set the selects correctly, but without the alerts() it doesn't.  There has to be a right way to do this and this isn't it.
Hi guys,
I am using asp.net mvc 5 and I have one controller that initiate the first page.
something like this:

Now I am calling a service from serviceConfig.json. which look like this:
   "_comment_": "This file is used if an external application needs to change the values the client application will use to communicate with the service.",

   "licenseDirectory": null,

   "serviceHost": "http://localhost:60219/",
   "servicePath": "",
   "serviceApiPath": "api/",

   "app3": "",
   "app4": "",

   "GoogleDriveLoad_ClientID": "",
   "GoogleDriveLoad_APIKey": ""

Open in new window

when I call this json file I am trying to get this link
http://localhost:60219/api/test, but instead I am getting - http://localhost:60219/documentviewer/index/api/test

my question is: how can I get read of the controller and view from the first page and return just -http://localhost:60219/api/test

Thank you.
I have created an Xpage custom Rest Service to retrieve a JSON value field from a document.

I take that field value and add other JSON values to a string variable (strJSON).

How can I validate the string variable contains valid JSON?

I receive an error ("'JSON' not found") with the following regardless if the string contains valid JSON:
Next code create triangles on canvas, if you are not clicking over an existing triangle. And you may save all elements to JSON with clicking on "save" button.Then preview the JSON variable in console.

My problem is that after resizing of an object, height and width are not updated in Json when clicked on save again.

What action must I perform to have also new height and width of the object?

    <input type="button"class="Btn1" id="saveJsonID" value="Save"/></br><br>
    <canvas  id="c5" width="1060" height="550"   style="border: 1px solid black"></canvas>

     var canvas = new fabric.Canvas('c5');
function some1(x1,y2){
           var c = new fabric.Triangle({
              left: posX2,
              top: posY2,
              stroke: '#666'   
 var  posX2 , posY2 ;
  canvas.on('mouse:down', function(e) {
        var circle1=[];
           var pointer = canvas.getPointer(e.e);
                posX2 = pointer.x;
                 posY2 = pointer.y;
              if (e.target){}else{some1(posY2,posY2);}

function saveJsonF(){ 
        var jsonToPHP= JSON.stringify(canvas.toObject());
  document.getElementById("saveJsonID").onclick = saveJsonF;

I am setting up an integration with a third party.   They already have an existing POST to a former affiliate, so I ask them to just put my URL in there and hit our site.  I figured I would just deserialize the JSON and see what comes in, then code to that.  

So I created a   index.cfm file (Coldfusion 11)  on    www.mysite.com/api/order/    

The index.cfm file does nothing but email me a CFDUMP of the URL and FORM variables.
I gave the URL to the company and they hit it.   I receive the email and both CFDUMPs are empty structures.   No URL variables, no FORM variables.

They say they are doing a POST call to the site.   And are using this path:     www.mysite.com/api/order/   

They have hit it multiple times, they get a 200 OK response.   But each time, my mailed dump show empty values even though they are sending JSON over.

What am I missing?    What do I have to do differently to see the data they are sending?

I need to make a vbscript utility code to enumerate subobjects in a JSON.
I load the JSON as follows:
Set so = CreateObject("MSScriptControl.ScriptControl.1")
so.Language = "JScript"
so.AddCode( "var json = " + json_text + ";" )

Open in new window

And then accessing the objects as follows:
set subobject_ref = so.Eval("json['subobject_name']")

Open in new window

What if 'subobject_name' is unknown? How can I enumerate all child properties of the root object or a given subobject?

set json_ref = so.Eval("json")

Open in new window

actually creates an object with subobjects/properties, but "for each" can't work with it.

In our ASP.Net MVC web application (C# code), when we are sending JSON request to client server then we received "access-control-allow-origin" error.

Exact Error message received is "No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'http://www.dial2insure.com' is therefore not allowed access."

if we add "Disable CORS 1.0.3" extension in Google Chrome then we received response json from client server.

4-5 days before I received proper response without this error (no change in code in between).

please suggest what corrections/code we add in our coding sequence and where so that we can get json response from client server without using Google Chrome extension.

Can someone help me build this as a valid Javascript Object / Json Object please?
Hi Experts,

   I am trying to loop through json object and filter it into different arrays based on 'group'. Also, trying to assign particular field to a const....I couldn't go beyond

 from(Field).pipe(groupBy(fie => fie.group), mergeMap(group => group.pipe(toArray())));

Open in new window

   I would like have this.group1, this.group2, this.gropu3 to have respective Fields after this execution along with this.fieldName1, this.fieldName2 having their respective field values.

  Field object looks like this

 Field : [
{ name : fieldname,
  value: FieldValue,
  group: FieldGroup

I have a stupid question.  I am relatively new to C# and I know I can do what I want to do, but just cannot figure out how.  I have the following code fragment where I am pulling a JSON formatted object from a web API.  I get everything from the connection cleanly and I am able to read it all into the string variable in the code fragment called json and even in the deserialized object jsonEmp.ToString().

The JSON data has the format show below the code fragment.

Here is my question:  All I want to do is walk through the JSON data so that I can pull each individual row out of those two retrieved objects.  I know I should be able to do a 'foreach' statement, but I cannot figure out how to do that.

Basically, here is what I want to do: I want to pull the "Id:", "Name:", and "Description:" from the returned JSON data object and assign them to string variables to display them individually.  But how do I parse the object row to individual string variables?

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thank you very much in advance,

                    string json = reader.ReadToEnd();

                    var jsonArray = jsonObj["value"] as JArray;

In the example code below, I'm attempting to set variable varB to the same value as varA.

$strJSONdata = @"

            "varB": "[variables('varA')]"

$objJSON = $strJSONdata | ConvertFrom-Json

write-host $objJSON.variables.varB

What is the correct syntax to refer to the value of another variable within the same JSON file.

By the way, I based my example on this web page:
I'm writing a C# .Net function that reads a Json message sent as part of a HttpRequest. The HttpRequestMessage includes the Json message as in an encoded format and as a parameter as follows (for example):

The problem I have is how to read and decode the Json data in my C# function (the function is running in Azure).

My code starts like this:

using System.Net;
using System.Web;
using Newtonsoft.Json;
using Newtonsoft.Json.Linq;
using System.Net.Http;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

public static async Task<HttpResponseMessage> Run(HttpRequestMessage req, TraceWriter log)


    string jsonContent = await req.Content.ReadAsStringAsync(); //This works fine and reads the encoded Json message
     JObject o = JObject.Parse(jsonContent); // This comes back with error: Newtonsoft.Json: Unexpected character encountered while parsing value: p. Path '', line 0, position 0.

If I test using a decoded httpsrequestmessage, everything works fine. However, with the encoded Json value, I can't read the data. The encoded Json data is sent from another system so I have no control to …
Is there a better way to convert a json of format
object {
field [
 @name : fieldName
  @value: fieldvalue
 (around 100 of this)

Open in new window

field {
fieldname1 : value1
fieldname2:  value2

Open in new window

so far I could think of only creating a cutome .ts class with all different fieldNames (like fieldName1, fieldName2..etc) and assigning respective values to those by iterating through field array. Feels like very original/basic solution.

What .Net Framework would you prefer 4.* or Core?

In terms of JSON - when is one's website both a website and an organization?

Need examples of best basic JSON-LD schema information for website homepage.  What looks good?  Just dipping my toe into the JSON water.  Getting penalized by Google a bit now.  Want just to cover the basics.  Will customize once I know more.  Just enough to pass the bar, as it were.

Need a few homepage examples - site I could see, please.  Sites with a few pages / sections to them.

For what its worth, in looking around and getting more confused, here's what I've seen.  These are obviously huge sites.  Looked at them for proper structure.  Hoping to find a short set of must haves from you friends and on a site that codes them well to get me out of the gate.

JSON Formatting Tool

What is the best tool (that's quick & easy) to take JSON in a "paragraph/horizontal" format,
and format it into the "common way" vertically so it's easier to read?

Even better, if you can do the same thing, but convert to YAML (vertically).

It can be a standalone tool if need be...or some kind of plugin. FYI...I typically use Visual Studio 'Code' for my
text editor in general, so if that helps with any ideas. However, I'm open to use other suggestions, at least for this purpose.

When I decode AWS encode errors messages, it comes out all smashed together in a horizontal format, almost as
cryptic as the encoded message itself and it's hard to read.
I have response object which is a JSON array:

   name: "fieldName1"
   value: "fieldValue1" 
   name: "fieldName2"
   value: "fieldValue2" 

Open in new window

I have like hundreds of fields like that. I have a need to pass this object to different Angular component and extract out certain fields. Is there a better was to do this in Angular HTML template without having loop through all fields every time I need a particular field in a component? Custom filter pipe will also loop through entire array.
