View Full Version : Parse POST results token

09-25-2010, 06:57 PM
I'm making a javascript POST that returns some information in this format. It's copied from the web API website I'm developing from.

Returns a token on success.

"errors": [
"warnings": [
"data": {
"token": "ta98585435afabcf26319e2038a09f40"
"page": {
"current": 1,
"total": 1

How can I get the data.token bit out specifically?

er, data.token?

The result comes back as an array of information. There is an element called data.token.

When you make your call to the server to get the JavaScript, it comes back as a string and requires converting to JavaScript code using eval()

It's a good idea to error handle it:

try {
var json = eval(YourServerResponseJavaScript);
} catch(e) {
alert('Invalid JS from server');

var theToken = json.data.token;

Hope this helps
