Hi there,
In php i have an object myObject, which has integers, string and arrays. I push all of the instances of myObjects in a simple array, then encode the array with $ious_string = json_encode($places_obj_ious);
I then send this string to javascript via AJAX, and decode it with ious_string.evalJSON() using he prototype framework.
What is the resulted object?
I need to be getting the array i had generated n php. How can i itterate through the collection f objects created?

I am doing this
var temp = ious_string.evalJSON();
While alert(temp[0].id) would show something valid alert(temp.length) is undefined.

So i cant really itterate through the "array"

the above response is the encoded response for an array with 3 objects...

What's coming back isn't an array of objects, but an object with three key/value properties

to enumerate though this object, you could do the following

for(var key in temp)
{
    var user_name = temp[key].user_name;
    var user_id = temp[key].user_id;
    ...
}

well it seems to be ok but it is not.
while in php the length of my array is 96 objects, and i can see with print_r they are all valid and not empty, when i do
for(var key in temp){
            myarray.push(new place(temp[key]));
      }

i get 134 elements in myarray...
the last 38 are null...
