How to access Json data Groupon API

Recommended Posts



I've been using the Groupon API, see feed below. I can access without any problem "+data.highlightsHtml+" but I'm struggling to access some other data such as deals > options > value > formattedAmount


I've tried this for example: "+data.options.value.formattedAmount+" but I got the following error: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'formattedAmount' of undefined


So my question is, how can I access formattedAmount from value?

This is JSON. Square brackets are arrays.


When you want to access en element of an array you use square brackets and an index.


Take this structure for example:

var products = {    "items" : [        {            "name" : "Item 1",            "cost" : 100        },        {            "name" : "Item 2",            "cost" : 100        },    ],    "totalCost" : 200}

To access the name of item 1 we would write this:


To access the cost of item 2:


To access the total cost:

value is not an array, options is an array.


Look at the structure:

"options" : [ Square bracket means an array

"value" : { Curly bracket means an object
