As per the code you have written here, you have not parsed the json data obtained into a javascript object, and so "data.jobs.id[i]" will have no meaning as yet. Check my response to you previous post: http://www.coderanch.com/t/528797/HTML-JavaScript/parse-JSON-Object-javascript
You can try this, just to check: var myJSObj = eval(data); and then loop over the new object and alert the values.

See if this example explains it any better:



...and in your post above you probably have missed the first '{' before "jobs".

Thank you Nikhil , your responses were fast .

Anyhow i solved this by this way :


$.each(data.jobs, function(index,job) {

PurchasesData.setValue(index, 0, new Date(job.id));
PurchasesData.setValue(index, 1, parseInt(job.title));

}
);

Proper JSON has quotes



If the quotes are missing, JavaScript's JSON will not parse the string into an object.
