Loop through json data using javascript


In this article I am going to explain about how to loop through the JSON. It is explained using two drop down values which means for city and std codes.


In  our code we have two drop down lists. One for selecting city and another one for loading the corresponding stdcodes. The javascript function is used to loop through this json data. In this javascript code we first removing all the items from the stdcode dropdown. After that we are getting the comma separated values of the particular selected city. Then we are splitting the comma separated stdcodes and loading it to the stdcode drop down. The source code for this is given below

function loadSTDCode(cityid) {
var list = document.getElementById(‘<%=stdcode.ClientID %>‘);
var optlength = list.options.length;
for (var i = 0; i < optlength; i++) {
var city = ‘c’ + cityid;
var arr = [{ “c1”: “562,343,534“, “c2”: “79,123,124,967″, “c3″: “532“, “c4”: “183”, “c5″: “240″, “c6″: “80″, “c0“: “1521,1522,1520,151,1523″}];
for (var i = 0; i < arr.length; i++) {
    var obj = arr[i];
    for (var key in obj) {
        var attrName = key;
        var attrValue = obj[key];
        if (attrName == city) {
            var posi = attrValue.indexOf(“,”);
            if (posi == -1) {
                var opt = document.createElement(“option”);
                document.getElementById(‘<%=stdcode.ClientID %>‘).options.add(opt);
                opt.text = attrValue;
                opt.value = attrValue;
            else {
                var mySplitResult = attrValue.split(“,”);
                for (var i = 0; i < mySplitResult.length; i++) {
                    var opt = document.createElement(“option”);
                    document.getElementById(‘<%=stdcode.ClientID %>‘).options.add(opt);
                    opt.text = mySplitResult[i];
                    opt.value = mySplitResult[i];
