help with array return

Sorry if this is crazy...and thanks in advance for the help.

I have an object that I am trying to keep for my page and use in other methods on the page.  My issues is my Array is not increasing and available when I need it.

//-------OBJ ----//
function IPpage() {

this.Prop1 = "...";
this.FilterAR = [];

//do on create of object

IPpage.prototype.LoadFilterList = function () {
    //add the user filters
        type: 'POST',
        url: u,
        dataType: 'json',
        contentType: 'application/json; charset=utf-8',
        data: p,
        error: function (xhr, ajaxOptions, thrownError) {
            return false;
        success: function (response) {
            var d = response.d;
            if (d) {
                var data = []
                $.each(d, function (indx, val) {
                    data.push({ FGUID: val.FGUID, FilterName: val.FilterName, DefaultView: val.ColView, IsSystem: false }); 
                var t = '', u = '';

[b]               //is this my problem?   is this a reference of the actual property in my main object  [/b]
                o.FilterAR = data.concat(o.StandardFilter());

                //build the system filters
                for (i = 0; i < o.FilterAR.length; i++) {
                    entry = o.FilterAR[i];
                    if (entry.IsSystem) {
                        t += ("<tr data-dguid='" + entry.FGUID + "'><td class='ippFilterHL noSelect jqFilterBtn jqFtitle'>" + entry.FilterName + "</td><td>&nbsp;</td></tr>");
                    } else {
                        u += ("<tr data-dguid='" + entry.FGUID + "'><td class='ippFilterHL noSelect jqFilterBtn'>" + entry.FilterName + "</td><td class='ippSubButton noSelect jqFilterEditBtn jqFtitle'>" + o.lblEdit + "</td></tr>");

Is there a better way to load the array?  Basically I have some values that are standard then I hit a table to add more and I want that array to be global for my object.

I want to use it in other methods...

IPpage.prototype.GetFilterObjByFGUID = function () {

    for (var i = 0; i < this.FilterAR.length; i++) {
        if (this.FilterAR[i].FGUID == this.FGUID) { return this.FilterAR[i]; }

Not sure where you instanciate "o"
what about :

IPpage.prototype.LoadFilterList = function () {
    //add the user filters
   var o = this;

sorry I do that at the top

IPpage.prototype.LoadFilterList = function () {
   var o = this;

Here is my problem.

The array loads but then throughout the page I add(push) to the array and it looks like it creates another object and doesn't hold to:


Is it true that :  this.FieldAR.push(....)

should be GLOBAL at that point?
