Create dynamic %Object with object ID

Hi Community,

How can I create a JSON with the object ID by using the %Object:$toJSON API?

I have the following piece of code bellow where I create an object reference, create a %Object instance from %fromObject and them I am creating the JSON from $toJSON, but it does not expose the %ID (object id). How is the best approach to create a JSON with the respectives object IDs?

 

Try
  {
  Set tPersonObj = ##class(Data.Person).%OpenId(pId)
  If $Get(%objlasterror) $$$ThrowStatus(%objlasterror) 
 
  Set tObj = ##class(%Object).$fromObject(tPersonObj)
  Write tObj.$toJSON()
 
  }
  Catch ex
  {
  Set tSC = ex.Status
  }

 

The outcome is:

Write tObj.$toJSON()
{"Age":28,"MaritalStatus":"Casada","Name":"Emilia de Souza","Sex":"F"}

I am expecting this:

{"ID":5,"Age":28,"MaritalStatus":"Casada","Name":"Emilia de Souza","Sex":"F"}

Thanks.

In 2016.2, you can do this by overriding %ToDynamicObject in Data.Person as follows:

/// In addition to the default behavior, also set the ID property to ..%Id()
Method %ToDynamicObject(target As %Object = "", ignoreUnknown = 0) [ ServerOnly = 1 ]
{
    set:target="" target = {}
    set target.ID = ..%Id() //Set ID property first so it comes at the beginning of the JSON output.
    do ##super(.target,.ignoreUnknown)
}

how to remove the "children" tag name from the json output. can anyone know ?

i need:

[{"ID":1,"Age":21,"EmailID":"","FirstName":"Bhagath","HomeAddress":"","LastName":"Singh"},{"ID":2,"Age":21,"EmailID":"","FirstName":"Bhagath","HomeAddress":"","LastName":"Singh"},]

but i got :

{"children":[{"ID":1,"Age":21,"EmailID":"","FirstName":"Bhagath","HomeAddress":"","LastName":"Singh"},{"ID":2,"Age":21,"EmailID":"","FirstName":"Bhagath","HomeAddress":"","LastName":"Singh"},]}

Please, attach your code that generates this output.

Are you using some provider?

 

 set tmp = ##class(%ZEN.Auxiliary.jsonSQLProvider).%WriteJSONFromSQL(, "select * from Models.Person")

set st = ##class(Workflow.jsonProvider).%ObjectToJSON(tmp)
return st

 

this is my code which i used for fetch all data from table. correct me if anything wrong , i m new to intersystems. is any possibility to fetch all record through object without write full query?

 

Output with null 

{
"children":[
{"ID":1,"Age":21,"EmailID":"","FirstName":"Bhagath","HomeAddress":"","LastName":"Singh"}
,{"ID":2,"Age":21,"EmailID":"","FirstName":"Bhagath","HomeAddress":"","LastName":"Singh"}
,{"ID":3,"Age":21,"EmailID":"","FirstName":"Bhagath","HomeAddress":"","LastName":"Singh"}
,{"ID":4,"Age":21,"EmailID":"","FirstName":"Bhagath","HomeAddress":"","LastName":"Singh"}
,{"ID":5,"Age":21,"EmailID":"","FirstName":"Bhagath","HomeAddress":"","LastName":"Singh"}
,{"ID":6,"Age":21,"EmailID":"","FirstName":"Bhagath","HomeAddress":"","LastName":"Singh"}
]
}
null

 

I subscribe to the issue. 

Also, how can I use 

do obj.%ToDynamicObject(jsonObj)

 

in Cache Studio 2016.1?

A few side notes...

The correct/best way to create a %Object from a %RegisteredObject (or vice versa) is $compose, not $fromObject (which has been marked as Internal in more recent builds). This is first available in 2016.2.

SAMPLES>set person = ##class(Sample.Person).%OpenId(1)
SAMPLES>set obj = {}.$compose(person)
SAMPLES>w obj.$toJSON()
{"Age":88,"DOB":31520,"FavoriteColors":["Blue"],"Home":{"City":"Youngstown","State":"CO","Street":"1360 Oak Avenue","Zip":74578},"Name":"Tillem,Terry Y.","Office":{"City":"Gansevoort","State":"KY","Street":"4525 Main Court","Zip":93076},"SSN":"132-94-8739"}

Also, you can get %RegisteredObjects as JSON more directly:

SAMPLES>set person = ##class(Sample.Person).%OpenId(1) 
SAMPLES>w person.$toJSON()
{"Age":88,"DOB":31520,"FavoriteColors":["Blue"],"Home":{"City":"Youngstown","State":"CO","Street":"1360 Oak Avenue","Zip":74578},"Name":"Tillem,Terry Y.","Office":{"City":"Gansevoort","State":"KY","Street":"4525 Main Court","Zip":93076},"SSN":"132-94-8739"}
