I have a set of standard parameters as follows:

jsonArgs = {
                  wt:'json',
                  indent: 'on',
                  hl: 'true',
                  'hl.fl': 'content',
                  'hl.simple.pre': '<span class="highlight">',
                  'hl.simple.post': '</span>',
                  'hl.highlightMultiTerm': 'true',
                  fq: 'url:valsparwood.com',
                  'hl.fragsize': '500'};

Based on a form submission, I need to append more parameters to the above object dynamically. What is the cleanest way to do this.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

var jsonArgs = {
                  wt:'json', 
                  indent: 'on',
                  hl: 'true',
                  'hl.fl': 'content',
                  'hl.simple.pre': '<span class="highlight">',
                  'hl.simple.post': '</span>',
                  'hl.highlightMultiTerm': 'true',
                  fq: 'url:valsparwood.com',
                  'hl.fragsize': '500'};

jsonArgs[ "parameter_name1" ] = "the value 1";
jsonArgs[ "parameter_name2" ] = "the value 2";

Open in new window


or if you've jQuery in the box :
var jsonArgs = {
                  wt:'json', 
                  indent: 'on',
                  hl: 'true',
                  'hl.fl': 'content',
                  'hl.simple.pre': '<span class="highlight">',
                  'hl.simple.post': '</span>',
                  'hl.highlightMultiTerm': 'true',
                  fq: 'url:valsparwood.com',
                  'hl.fragsize': '500'};
$.extend(jsonArgs, { parameter_name1:"the value 1", "parameter_name2":"the value 2" });

Open in new window
