    To enlist all the records:
    PHP Code:
    function walk(arr){
        var 
    str '';
        for (var 
    0arr.lengthi++)
            if (
    arr[i].id){
                
    str += arr[i].id ':' arr[i].name '\n';
                if (
    arr[i].children.length 0)
                    
    str += walk(arr[i].children);
            }
        return 
    str;

    don't we just love elegant code!

    and don't forget to break when you retrieve the desired value.
