Dear all,
I got items like this:
var values = lines[i].split(itemSeperator);

Open in new window


instead of do this:
				item.languages.push({
					name : values[0],
					column_type : values[1],
					IsNull : values[2],
					column_default : values[3]
				});

Open in new window


I need to do this:
				item.languages.push({
					itemcount: (total item in the array )
					item1 : values[1],
					item2: values[2], ....
                                         itemn : values[n]
				});

Open in new window

I am not sure what you are asking.  If what you want is the source for the number of items in the list then:
itemcount: (values.length)

instead of
name : values[0],

I want to use
[item#n] :  values[n],

I think it should be something like:
var lang = {};
lang.itemcount = values.length;
for (var i = 0; i < lang.itemcount; i++) {
	lang['item' + (i+1)] = values[i];
};

item.languages.push(lang);

Open in new window


I didn't actually test it but if it doesn't work it shouldn't be far :)

I need to do
var lang = {};
	lang.itemcount = values.length;
	for (var i = 0; i < lang.itemcount; i++) {
	'item' + i.toString() : values[i];
	};

You don't need the toString().  The concatenation will cause the integer to be re-typed to string.

But didn't my code work?
What's the problem?

item1, item2, itemN... are properties of the same object that contains the itemcount.
In my code I'm adding these properties dynamically:

lang['item' + (i+1)] = values[i];

Open in new window


This line adds a property to the lang object called: 'item' + (i+1)
and sets its value as:
values[i]

Open in new window


This was what I understood that you wanted...

json objects store properties in an array.
Because of this you can get and set a property by calling:
var a = {};
a["prop1"] = 123;

alert(a["prop1"]);  // 123
alert(a.prop1);   // 123

in this code
				item.languages.push({
					name : values[0],
					column_type : values[1],
					IsNull : values[2],
					column_default : values[3]
				}); 

Open in new window


its defined the columns name ( name , column_type ,IsNull,column_default ) for known array.


instead I need to push unknown array ( dynamic array)
