Using the following


	$.ajax( {
			url: url,
			type:'GET',
			//success: function(data) { displayWalkScores(data); },
			success: function(data) {
				console.log(data);
				$("#dataInfo").html(data);
				$("#myWalkScore").html(data.walkscore);
				},
			error: function(){ displayWalkScores(""); }
			}
		);

Open in new window


I get the following when I put data into #dataInfo, but I am having issues putting just the walkscore into #myWalkScore.  How do I access this value by itself?

{ "status": 1 , "walkscore": 97 , "description": "Walker's Paradise" , "updated": "2013-06-17 20:23:54.900400" , "logo_url": "http://www2.walkscore.com/images/api-logo.gif" , "more_info_icon": "http://www2.walkscore.com/images/api-more-info.gif" , "more_info_link": "http://www.walkscore.com/how-it-works.shtml" , "ws_link": "http://www.walkscore.com/score/1119-8th-Avenue-.num.42-Seattle-WA-98101/lat=47.6085/lng=-122.3295/?utm_source=iastate.edu&utm_medium=ws_api&utm_campaign=ws_api" , "snapped_lat": 47.6085 , "snapped_lon": -122.3295 }

Try specifying the datatype:

$.ajax( {
			url: url,
			type:'GET',
		        dataType: "json",
			//success: function(data) { displayWalkScores(data); },
			success: function(data) {
				console.log(data);
				$("#dataInfo").html(data);
				$("#myWalkScore").html(data.walkscore);
				},
			error: function(){ displayWalkScores(""); }
			}
		);
