I'm trying to insert a variable into an objects property value that is contained in an array.  
This will be easier to understand if I just show you what I'm trying to do.  I have an array of objects declared as:
var map_config = {
        'map_2':{
		'namesId':'AK',
		'name': 'ALASKA',
		'data':Population of Alaska',
		'upcolor': '#a0a0a0',
		'overcolor':'#99CC00',
		'downcolor':'#993366',
		'enable':false,
	},
	'map_3':{
		'namesId':'AZ',
		'name': 'ARIZONA',		
		'data':Population of Arizona',
		'upcolor':'#EBECED',
		'overcolor':'#99CC00',
		'downcolor':'#993366',
		'enable':true,
	}, ....

Open in new window


For each object in the array (50--one for each state), I'm trying to modify the data property by doing something like this:

 'map_2':{
		'namesId':'AK',
		'name': 'ALASKA',
		'data':Population of Alaska' + variable1,
		'upcolor': '#a0a0a0',
		'overcolor':'#99CC00',
		'downcolor':'#993366',
		'enable':false,
                }

Open in new window


where variable1 is a variable of type string which is created at the server and pushed out to the client (in this case I'm using ClientScript.RegisterArrayDeclaration).  The variable names are not dynamic so I can hardcode the variable name in (e.g. variable1 not variable i)

The above syntax is not working.  Any suggestions?

Hi,
have not tried it in a sample but I guess you are just missing the opening quote '
 'map_2':{
		'namesId':'AK',
		'name': 'ALASKA',
		'data':'Population of Alaska' + variable1,
		'upcolor': '#a0a0a0',
		'overcolor':'#99CC00',
		'downcolor':'#993366',
		'enable':false,
                }

Open in new window

Or is the data property not a string but another object?
