I have a http post that will return a string like the example below.
I need to get the value of qualified.

The string will not always be in same exact character length.
How do i search string for [qualified] => then set the value to result.

<cfset result =

Array ( [success] => 1 [leadID] => 8001640 [qualified] => 1 )
