Hello Experts -

I am getting a JSON object using JQuery and .getJSON function.  

Is there a way to loop through object's properties and retrieve the name of each property?

I'm new to JSON, so an examples would be great.

Thanks.

You can try $.each() for this.

var students = {student1:{name:'Mr A', fathername:'Father A'},student2:{name:'Mr B', fathername:'Father B'},student3:{name:'Mr C', fathername:'Father C'}};
$(function(){
jQuery.each(students, function(i, val) {
      alert(i+' name: '+val.name);
    });
});

Here's what worked in my solution (where 'data' is the JSON object)
 for (var key in data) {
                                if (data.hasOwnProperty(key)) {
                                    $('#findMe').append(key + '');
                                }
                            }
