JSON HTML


JSON can very easily be translated into JavaScript.

JavaScript can be used to make HTML in your web pages.


HTML Table

Make an HTML table with data received as JSON:

Example

obj = { “table”:”customers”, “limit”:20 };
dbParam = JSON.stringify(obj);
xmlhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange = function() {
if (this.readyState == 4 && this.status == 200) {
myObj = JSON.parse(this.responseText);
txt += “<table border=’1′>”
for (x in myObj) {
txt += “<tr><td>” + myObj[x].name + “</td></tr>”;
}
txt += “</table>”
document.getElementById(“demo”).innerHTML = txt;
}
}
xmlhttp.open(“POST”, “json_demo_db_post.php”, true);
xmlhttp.setRequestHeader(“Content-type”, “application/x-www-form-urlencoded”);
xmlhttp.send(“x=” + dbParam);

Dynamic HTML Table

Make the HTML table based on the value of a drop down menu:

Example

<select id=”myselect” onchange=”change_myselect(this.value)”>
<option value=””>Choose an option:</option>
<option value=”customers”>Customers</option>
<option value=”products”>Products</option>
<option value=”suppliers”>Suppliers</option>
</select>

<script>
function change_myselect(sel) {
var obj, dbParam, xmlhttp, myObj, x, txt = “”;
obj = { “table”:sel, “limit”:20 };
dbParam = JSON.stringify(obj);
xmlhttp = new XMLHttpRequest();
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange = function() {
if (this.readyState == 4 && this.status == 200) {
myObj = JSON.parse(this.responseText);
txt += “<table border=’1′>”
for (x in myObj) {
txt += “<tr><td>” + myObj[x].name + “</td></tr>”;
}
txt += “</table>”
document.getElementById(“demo”).innerHTML = txt;
}
};
xmlhttp.open(“POST”, “json_demo_db_post.php”, true);
xmlhttp.setRequestHeader(“Content-type”, “application/x-www-form-urlencoded”);
xmlhttp.send(“x=” + dbParam);
}
</script>
