I have the following json data object


[
    {
        "dob": "3/24/2012 12:00:00 AM",
        "first_name": "FirstName-8604     ",
        "id": 69,
        "last_name": "LastName-8604     ",
        "mrn": "0",
        "pat_seqno": 2121,
        "site_id": 12
    },
    {
        "dob": "1/6/2012 12:00:00 AM",
        "first_name": "FirstName-4     ",
        "id": 70,
        "last_name": "LastName-4     ",
        "mrn": "0",
        "pat_seqno": 2121,
        "site_id": 12
    },
    {
        "dob": "9/8/2012 12:00:00 AM",
        "first_name": "FirstName-840     ",
        "id": 71,
        "last_name": "LastName-840     ",
        "mrn": "0",
        "pat_seqno": 2123,
        "site_id": 12
    }]

Open in new window


And I to push it a wcf service that I am working and push it to a database table of some sort, this is how I have the method set up in the Ifile

[OperationContract]
        [WebInvoke(Method = "POST", BodyStyle=WebMessageBodyStyle.WrappedRequest, RequestFormat=WebMessageFormat.Json, ResponseFormat=WebMessageFormat.Json, UriTemplate="PutPatientData")]
        string SavePatientData(PatientRecords[] patrecs);

Open in new window


And right now I have some placeholder colder to make sure that the method is working for me.
        public string SavePatientData(PatientRecords[] patrecs)
        {
            string strReturn = "saved";

            return strReturn;
        }

Open in new window


how do I call this method with the above json object, so that I see it in the backend code and store it in the database.

Use :

var patient_records = [
    {
        "dob": "3/24/2012 12:00:00 AM",
        "first_name": "FirstName-8604     ",
        "id": 69,
        "last_name": "LastName-8604     ",
        "mrn": "0",
        "pat_seqno": 2121,
        "site_id": 12
    },
    {
        "dob": "1/6/2012 12:00:00 AM",
        "first_name": "FirstName-4     ",
        "id": 70,
        "last_name": "LastName-4     ",
        "mrn": "0",
        "pat_seqno": 2121,
        "site_id": 12
    },
    {
        "dob": "9/8/2012 12:00:00 AM",
        "first_name": "FirstName-840     ",
        "id": 71,
        "last_name": "LastName-840     ",
        "mrn": "0",
        "pat_seqno": 2123,
        "site_id": 12
    }];

        $.ajax({
            type: "POST",
            url: "yourpage.asmx/SavePatientData",
            contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
            dataType: "json",
            data: JSON.stringify({ patrecs: patient_records }),
            success: function (msg) {
                alert("success : " + msg.d);
            },
            error: function (msg) {
                alert("failed :  " + msg.d);

            }
        });

that worked for me, although I should have called this out in my original request, where I am  using a google chrome plugin Advanced Rest Client to do my testing on this and that is where I am having issues.

As I forgot to call it out, my bad. Your solution worked for me and I will give you the points, but was just wondering if you had any idea on how I could use the plugin for chrome to do the testing with.
