Hello, I am new to JSON. Now in my asp.net code behind there is an array. I want to use it in javascript(jquery). I heard a new term "JSON" and serialize etc., but just no idea about it.

string[] source = new string[5];
         source[0] = "c++";
         source[1] = "java";
         source[2] = "php";
         source[3] = "coldfusion";
         source[4] = "javascript"; 

Open in new window

How to start it? I need details such as download something and so on.

Hi!

Download this script and include into your project
https://github.com/douglascrockford/JSON-js/blob/master/json2.js

and then simply call
var myJsonString = JSON.stringify(source);

Thanks!

Let me rewrite the question, actually I want to pass the array from asp.net array to javascript code.
My original idea was to use jquery to complete autocomplete. The sample code:

A simple jQuery UI Autocomplete.
http://docs.jquery.com/UI/Autocomplete
 
$("input#autocomplete").autocomplete({
    source: ["c++", "java", "php", "coldfusion", "javascript", "asp", "ruby"]
});
 

Open in new window

Here source is hard copied, but in the real world case, it is from database. I extracted it from the database and formed it as a list or an array. Now the question is how to pass it to javascript.
I need code assistance or at least a small sample.
