How to get correct json output in this case?

Hi

this is the $distribution array

    Array
    (
        [ASCM72X36] => Array
            (
                [item_code] => ASCM72X36
                [quantity] => 5
                [selling_price] => 6758.00
            )
    
        [ASCM72X48] => Array
            (
                [item_code] => ASCM72X48
                [quantity] => 5
                [selling_price] => 
            )
    
        [ASCM72X60] => Array
            (
                [item_code] => ASCM72X60
                [quantity] => 5
                [selling_price] => 8544.00
            )
    )

Open in new window


and this is the $sold array

        Array
        (
            [ASCM72X36] => Array
                (
                    [item_code] => ASCM72X36
                    [quantity] => 1.0
                )
        
            [ASCM72X60] => Array
                (
                    [item_code] => ASCM72X60
                    [quantity] => 1.0
                )
    ) 

Open in new window


so im comparing keys and building new $responce array with new quantity and filter out quantity 0 products like below

        $i=0;
        foreach($distribution as $key => $new_distribution)
        {
          $newqty = $new_distribution['quantity'] - $sold[$key]['quantity'];
          if( $newqty != 0 && $new_distribution['selling_price'] != ""){
            $responce->data[$i]['item_code'] = $new_distribution['item_code'];
            $responce->data[$i]['quantity'] = $newqty;
            $responce->data[$i]['selling_price'] = $new_distribution['selling_price'];
          }
        $i++;
    
    }

Open in new window


then i need to get json encode out put so im doing it like this

    echo json_encode($responce);

Open in new window


im getting out put like

    {"data":{"0":{"item_code":"ASCM72X36","quantity":4,"selling_price":"6758.00"},"2":{"item_code":"ASCM72X60","quantity":4,"selling_price":"8544.00"}}}

Open in new window


problem is im getting a "0", "2" etc.. in json. how to prevent that and get the out put like without those "0" s and "2" etc...?

    {"data":{"item_code":"ASCM72X36","quantity":4,"selling_price":"6758.00"},{"item_code":"ASCM72X60","quantity":4,"selling_price":"8544.00"}}

greetings 3xtr3m3d,  There is a difference (I would say a BIG difference) in the way javascript uses arrays and Objects compared to how PHP uses element references inside the [ ]  . The  PHP json_encode( ) does a "text" conversion of PHP arrays and objects to javascript arrays and objects, which are Different than PHP stuff. What you show as the
{"data":{"0":{"
seems correct to me, if you use this in javascript, it will likely give you the same data structures and values that were in the PHP. In javascript arrays can not have text (strings) as elements between the [ ]  . however you can access object elements with data.ASCM72X60 or data['ASCM72X60']
do you have problems in the javascript access for the data object ?

right BEFORE:

echo json_encode($responce);


try:
...
$responce=(array)$responce;
echo json_encode($responce);

Thanks for the replies guys. that didn't remove array indices though.

@Slick812: ya with those indices im having problem loading a Extjs store.

anyway this solved my problem

                    $arr=array();
                    $arr['item_code'] = $new_distribution['item_code'];
                    $arr['quantity'] = $newqty;
                    $arr['selling_price'] = $new_distribution['selling_price'];
                    $responce->data[] = $arr;
