I'm trying to return multiple items in my JSON call and place that data into multiple div's

This is my code to return the Json

     
 string JSONstring = "[";
        foreach (PersonInformation PS in PList)
           {
               JSONstring = JSONstring + "{";
               JSONstring = JSONstring + "EmpName:";
               JSONstring = JSONstring + "'" + PS.EmpName + "',";
               JSONstring = JSONstring + "PhoneNumber:";
               JSONstring = JSONstring + "'" + PS.Number + "'";
               JSONstring = JSONstring + "}";
           }
        JSONstring = JSONstring + "]";

This is my jquery

 $(document).ready(function () {
             $("#<%=txtEmployeeID.ClientID%>").blur(function () {
                 currentObject = $("#<%=txtEmployeeID.ClientID %>").val();
                 $.ajax({
                     type: "POST",
                     url: "EmployeeData.asmx/GetEmployeeInfo",
                     data: "{employeeID:'" + currentObject + "'}",
                     contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
                     dataType: "json",
                     success: function (msg) {
                         BindEmployee(msg.d)
                     },
                     error: function (xhr, ajaxOptions, thrownError) {
                         alert(xhr.status);
                         alert(thrownError);
                     }

                 });

             });

             function BindEmployee(msg) {
                 $.each(msg, function () {
                     var EmpName = msg.d[0];
                     var Phone = msg.d[1];
                     $("#EmployeeName").html(EmpName);
                     $("#PhoneNumber").html(Phone);

                 });
             }
        });

You haven't told us what isn't working - meaning are you getting an error message, etc.

That said, take a look at your output.  There's probably no comma in between the objects.  Not sure what language that is, but can you build an array and use some sort of join function?  Otherwise, if you put the comma at the end of your foreach, you'll end up with a final comma, which will screw things up.

It returns a string, but I can't break it up into my fields. I'm working on a asp.net c# page using jquery.

My response from my ajax call is this.

"[{\"EmpName\":\"Nick Malloy\",\"Phone\":\"96325\"}]"

          var a = "[{\"EmpName\":\"Nick Malloy\",\"Phone\":\"96325\"}]";
          a = $.parseJSON(a);
          BindEmployee(a);

            function BindEmployee(msg) {
                     var EmpName = msg[0].EmpName;
                     var Phone = msg[0].Phone;
                     $("#EmployeeName").html(EmpName);
                     $("#PhoneNumber").html(Phone);
             }
