Trying to parse this JSON array, if I alert before the .each() statement it alerts just fine, but if I alert inside the .each() statement I get nothing and the variables never get built. Problem is I am getting an error on the jQuery.js file itself. The error is saying G is undefined. I am using jquery version 1.3.2.

I have this jQuery function

function getData(jsonLink){
  $(".scrollable .items").html("<img class='loadGif' src='/sites/all/themes/zen/journeyon/images/ajax-loader.gif' alt='' />");

  $.ajaxSetup({
    url: jsonLink,
    global: false,
    type: "GET"
  });

  $.ajax({
    url: jsonLink,
    success: function(data) {
      var output = "";
      $.each(data['nodes'], function(i,row){
        var linkType = row['node-type'];
        var lowerLinkType = linkType.toLowerCase();
        var videoLink = row["video"];
        var thumbLink = row["thumbnail"];
        var posterLink = row["poster-image"];
        var nodeTitle = row["node-title"];
        var url = row['url-link'];
        if(linkType == "Episode"){
          output+='<li><a class="myRemote '+lowerLinkType+'" href="'+posterLink+'" ref="'+videoLink+'" title="Play '+nodeTitle+'"><img src="'+thumbLink+'" width="123" height="67" alt="Play '+nodeTitle+'" /></a></li>';
        }else if(linkType == "Slide"){
          output+='<li><a class="myRemote '+lowerLinkType+'" href="'+posterLink+'" ref="'+url+'" title="Go To '+nodeTitle+'"><img src="'+thumbLink+'" width="123" height="67" alt="Go To '+nodeTitle+'" /></a></li>';
        }
      });
      $(".scrollable .items").html("").append(output);
      remoteControl();
    }
  });
}

And I am trying to parse out this Array

{
    "nodes": [
        {
            "node-title" : "Slide for Album Post",
            "node-type" : "Slide",

    ] 
}

Problem is I am getting an error on the jQuery.js file itself.

G is undefined

Anyone have any clue what’s going on?
if I alert before the .each() statement it alerts just fine, but if I alert inside the .each() statement I get nothing and the variables never get built.

Thanks!

You’re doing it the hard way by using $.ajax(). It’s easier to use $.getJSON() instead.

Warren Young

$.ajax({
 url: jsonLink,
 dataType: 'json',
 success: function(data) {
  $.each(data.items, function(i,item){
  // your code ..
  });
 }
});

Just use row.node-type, row.video etc instead of using row[‘node-type’], row[“video”] etc.

Hope this will help.
