This is a huge pain in the ass to do, sometimes getting to the point where I just write something random and it works, and I write something that SHOULD work and it does absolutely nothing.

Relevant code:

PHP Code:
    do
    {
        
// Grab the ID
        
decl String:AttributeID[6];
        
KvGetSectionName(handleAttributeID6);
        
        
// Grab its value
        
decl String:AttributeValue[20];
        
KvGetString(handleAttributeIDAttributeValue20);
        
        
ServerCommand("say [%s, %s]"AttributeIDAttributeValue);
        
    } while (
KvGotoNextKey(kvfalse)); 
Relevant section of the file:

PHP Code:
        "Weapons"
        
{
            
"0"
            
{
                
"81"    "2.0"
                "25"    "3.0"
            
}
        } 
Server prints out:

PHP Code:
[81, ]
[
25, ] 
I want it to print out:

PHP Code:
[812.0]
[
253.0
Any reasons why it's not grabbing the decimal values from the file? Does the KV stack have to point at the "0" node before I use the "KvGetString" native, and do I have to have all the known keys (81, 25) prior to grabbing the decimal values? (Which would require 2 iterations on the section - 1 to grab the keys and then 1 to grab the values - and that sounds like a performance sink.)

You may NOT assume that I know what the keys & values of the "0" block is. (That is, the keys can vary to be 22, 28, 45 or 1, 2, 3, 4 or any size + combo of numbers.)

Thanks!

use
native Float:KvGetFloat(Handle:kv, const String:key[], Float:defvalue=0.0);

Tried that, returns 0.0 and 0.0 both (which is the same as the string case).

I'm probably going to try the 2 iteration trick tomorrow and see if it works.

Did you jump at Section? If yes, then ofc you'll not get valid.

>>

"81" // is the section
{

}


You need to jump to section "0" and then get keys "81" and "25" by using 'KvGetFloat()'.

That's what I ended up having to do. The problem with that is I had to loop across the inner section twice - once to get the keys and once to get the values. I was hoping that once I got the key I could also get the value simultaneously, but it doesn't seem like that's how the keyvalue API is built.

Problem has been solved. Thanks for your help!

Problem has been solved. The bolded section of that question I asked is the answer to the problem (have to get the keys once, then go back up a node, then get the values). This is, of course, assuming the keys inside the section are not known. (If the keys are known, then just directly get the values.)
this should work:
PHP Code:
    do
    {
        
// Grab the ID
        
decl String:AttributeID[6];
        
KvGetSectionName(handleAttributeID6);
        
        
// Grab its value
        
decl String:AttributeValue[20];
        
KvGetString(handleNULL_STRINGAttributeValue20); //Docs say: Name of the key, or NULL_STRING.
        
        
ServerCommand("say [%s, %s]"AttributeIDAttributeValue);
        
    } while (
KvGotoNextKey(kvfalse));

Oh beautiful that works perfectly! Thank you so much! That should cut processing time by about a half.
