How to parse JSON data with jQuery / JavaScript?


Question

I have a AJAX call that returns some JSON like this:

$(document).ready(function () {
    $.ajax({ 
        type: 'GET', 
        url: 'http://example/functions.php', 
        data: { get_param: 'value' }, 
        success: function (data) { 
            var names = data
            $('#cand').html(data);
        }
    });
});

Inside the #cand div I'll get:

[ { "id" : "1", "name" : "test1" },
  { "id" : "2", "name" : "test2" },
  { "id" : "3", "name" : "test3" },
  { "id" : "4", "name" : "test4" },
  { "id" : "5", "name" : "test5" } ]

How can I loop through this data and place each name in a div?

Assuming your server side script doesn't set the proper Content-Type: application/json response header you will need to indicate to jQuery that this is JSON by using the dataType: 'json' parameter.

Then you could use the $.each() function to loop through the data:

$.ajax({ 
    type: 'GET', 
    url: 'http://example/functions.php', 
    data: { get_param: 'value' }, 
    dataType: 'json',
    success: function (data) { 
        $.each(data, function(index, element) {
            $('body').append($('<div>', {
                text: element.name
            }));
        });
    }
});

or use the $.getJSON method:

$.getJSON('/functions.php', { get_param: 'value' }, function(data) {
    $.each(data, function(index, element) {
        $('body').append($('<div>', {
            text: element.name
        }));
    });
});

Setting dataType:'json' will parse JSON for you:

$.ajax({
  type: 'GET',
  url: 'http://example/functions.php',
  data: {get_param: 'value'},
  dataType: 'json',
  success: function (data) {
    var names = data
    $('#cand').html(data);
  }
});

Or else you can use parseJSON:

var parsedJson = $.parseJSON(jsonToBeParsed);

Then you can iterate the following:

var j ='[{"id":"1","name":"test1"},{"id":"2","name":"test2"},{"id":"3","name":"test3"},{"id":"4","name":"test4"},{"id":"5","name":"test5"}]';

...by using $().each:

var json = $.parseJSON(j);
$(json).each(function (i, val) {
  $.each(val, function (k, v) {
    console.log(k + " : " + v);
  });
});

Try following code, it works in my project:

//start ajax request
$.ajax({
    url: "data.json",
    //force to handle it as text
    dataType: "text",
    success: function(data) {

        //data downloaded so we call parseJSON function 
        //and pass downloaded data
        var json = $.parseJSON(data);
        //now json variable contains data in json format
        //let's display a few items
        for (var i=0;i<json.length;++i)
        {
            $('#results').append('<div class="name">'+json[i].name+'</>');
        }
    }
});

 $(document).ready(function () {
    $.ajax({ 
        type: 'GET', 
        url: '/functions.php', 
        data: { get_param: 'value' }, 
        success: function (data) { 
         for (var i=0;i<data.length;++i)
         {
         $('#cand').append('<div class="name">data[i].name</>');
         }
        }
    });
});

Use that code.

     $.ajax({

            type: "POST",
            contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
            url: "Your URL",
            data: "{}",
            dataType: "json",
            success: function (data) {
                alert(data);
            },
            error: function (result) {
                alert("Error");
            }
        });

ok i had the same problem and i fix it like this by removing [] from [{"key":"value"}]:

  1. in your php file make shure that you print like this
echo json_encode(array_shift($your_variable));
  1. in your success function do this
 success: function (data) {
    var result = $.parseJSON(data);
      ('.yourclass').append(result['your_key1']);
      ('.yourclass').append(result['your_key2']);
       ..
    }

and also you can loop it if you want
