Creating Simple Objects

JSON objects can be created with Javascript. Let us see various ways of creating JSON objects using Javascript:

  • Creation of an empty Object:

var JSONObj = {};
  • Creation of new Object:

var JSONObj = new Object();
  • Creation of an object with attribute bookname with value in string, attribute price with numeric value. Attributes is accessed by using '.' Operator:

var JSONObj = { "bookname ":"VB BLACK BOOK", "price":500 };

This is an example which shows creation of an object in javascript using JSON, save the below code as json_object.htm:

<html>
<head>
<title>Creating Object JSON with JavaScript</title>
<script language="javascript" >

  var JSONObj = { "name" : "tutorialspoint.com", "year"  : 2005 };
  document.write("<h1>JSON with JavaScript example</h1>");
  document.write("<br>");
  document.write("<h3>Website Name="+JSONObj.name+"</h3>");  
  document.write("<h3>Year="+JSONObj.year+"</h3>");  

</script>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

Now let's try to open json_object.htm using IE or any other javascript enabled browser, this produces the following result:

Creating Array Objects

Below example shows creation of an array object in javascript using JSON, save the below code as json_array_object.htm:

<html>
<head>
<title>Creation of array object in javascript using JSON</title>
<script language="javascript" >

document.writeln("<h2>JSON array object</h2>");

var books = { "Pascal" : [ 
      { "Name"  : "Pascal Made Simple", "price" : 700 },
      { "Name"  : "Guide to Pascal", "price" : 400 }
   ],                       
   "Scala"  : [
      { "Name"  : "Scala for the Impatient", "price" : 1000 }, 
      { "Name"  : "Scala in Depth", "price" : 1300 }
   ]    
}    

var i = 0
document.writeln("<table border='2'><tr>");
for(i=0;i<books.Pascal.length;i++)
{	
   document.writeln("<td>");
   document.writeln("<table border='1' width=100 >");
   document.writeln("<tr><td><b>Name</b></td><td width=50>"
   + books.Pascal[i].Name+"</td></tr>");
   document.writeln("<tr><td><b>Price</b></td><td width=50>"
   + books.Pascal[i].price +"</td></tr>");
   document.writeln("</table>");
   document.writeln("</td>");
}

for(i=0;i<books.Scala.length;i++)
{
   document.writeln("<td>");
   document.writeln("<table border='1' width=100 >");
   document.writeln("<tr><td><b>Name</b></td><td width=50>"
   + books.Scala[i].Name+"</td></tr>");
   document.writeln("<tr><td><b>Price</b></td><td width=50>"
   + books.Scala[i].price+"</td></tr>");
   document.writeln("</table>");
   document.writeln("</td>");
}
document.writeln("</tr></table>");
</script>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

Now let's try to open json_array_object.htm using IE or any other javascript enabled browser, this produces the following result:
