how to represent a multivalue variable?

for example, a 'box' which has three properties (attribute): id, weight and color.

should i go for array?

var box = new array(); = 1;
box.weight = 10;
box.color = red;

or any other better way to achieve this?

thanks in advance.

You should be using an object and not an array

You can also declare it like this

Do a search for JSON to get more information.

I agree. Here's the link:
