Javascript – Array of JSON Objects

javascriptjsonobject

I am trying to re-implement a page using JSON instead of some 2-dimensional arrays.

What I am hoping to accomplish is get an array of objects. The objects would look like this:

{ // Restaurant
  "location" : "123 Road Dr",
  "city_state" : "MyCity ST",
  "phone" : "555-555-5555",
  "distance" : "0"
}

I want to create an array of these restaurant objects and populate the distance field with some logic, then sort the array based on the distance field.

Can I create an array of JSON objects or is there something else with JSON that accomplishes this goal?

Thanks very much for your help.

Sure you can. It would look something like this:

{ "restaurants": [ 
    { "location" : "123 Road Dr", "city_state" : "MyCity ST", "phone" : "555-555-5555", "distance" : "0" } , 
    { "location" : "456 Fake St", "city_state" : "MyCity ST", "phone" : "555-123-1212", "distance" : "0" } 
] }

The outer field name of "restaurants" is not necessary of course, but it may help if you are including other information in the data you're transferring.
