Hi all, I need to create javascript code that holds all the weekends in two years. I am generating this code with PHP (I don't have a problem with that part). So far I have succesfully created this:

// january = 0, february = 1, etc...
var weekends = {
0 : [1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29],
1 : [4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26],
2 : [4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26],
3 : [1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 29, 30],
4 : [6, 7, 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, 28],
5 : [3, 4, 10, 11, 17, 18, 24, 25],
6 : [1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 29, 30],
7 : [5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27],
8 : [2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24, 30],
9 : [1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29],
10 : [4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26],
11 : [2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24, 30, 31]
};

But this holds the weekends for only one year. So now I need to add the third dimension to this array -which would be the year-.

In PHP this would look something like this:

$weekends = array(
    2006 => array (
        1 => array (1, 2, 3, 4),
        2 => array (1, 2, 3, 4),
        3 => array (1, 2, 3, 4),
        4 => array (1, 2, 3, 4)
        ),
    2007 => array (
        1 => array (1, 2, 3, 4),
        2 => array (1, 2, 3, 4),
        3 => array (1, 2, 3, 4),
        4 => array (1, 2, 3, 4)
        )
);

How can I turn this into javascript?

Try

var weekends = {
2001: {
0 : [1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29],
1 : [4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26],
2 : [4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26],
3 : [1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 29, 30],
4 : [6, 7, 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, 28],
5 : [3, 4, 10, 11, 17, 18, 24, 25],
6 : [1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 29, 30],
7 : [5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27],
8 : [2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24, 30],
9 : [1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29],
10 : [4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26],
11 : [2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24, 30, 31]
},
2002: {
0 : [1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29],
1 : [4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26],
2 : [4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26],
3 : [1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 29, 30],
4 : [6, 7, 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, 28],
5 : [3, 4, 10, 11, 17, 18, 24, 25],
6 : [1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 29, 30],
7 : [5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27],
8 : [2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24, 30],
9 : [1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29],
10 : [4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26],
11 : [2, 3, 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24, 30, 31]
}
};
