PHPServer Side ProgrammingProgrammingJavascript

PHP array can be passed to a JavaScript function using json_encode with the below lines of code −

<script>
   var var_name= <?php echo json_encode($php_variable); ?>;
</script>

If an object needs to be parsed from JSON like string (required in AJAX request), the below lines of code can be used −

var my_data = "<JSON-String>";
var my_var = JSON.parse(my_data);

Example

Let us see an example −

<?php
   // Create a PHP array
   $sample_array = array(
      0 => "Hello",
      1 => "there",
   )
?>
<script>
   // Access the elements of the array
   var passed_array = <?php echo json_encode($sample_array); ?>;
   // Display the elements inside the array
   for(var i = 0; i < passed_array.length; i++){
      document.write(passed_array[i]);
   }
</script>

Output

This will produce the following output −
