Accessing nested JSON data

Hello,

I have JSON but am unable to get the nested data.  The example of my JSON is below.  It is valid JSON.  I have the javascript/jquery code I am trying to use below to access the data.  I would like to be able to get all the data for id=1.  The console log is this:

0 Object { id="1", abbr="en", data=[2]}
1 Object { id="2", abbr="fr", data=[2]}

How do I access abbr (tmpObj.abbr comes up undefined) and the "textboxID" and "text" for each element in 'data'?

Many thanks in advance!

Cheers,



{
    "rows": [
        {
            "id": "1",
            "abbr": "en",
            "data": [
                {
                    "textboxID": "1",
                    "text": "This is English"
                },
                {
                    "textboxID": "2",
                    "text": "English 2"
                }
            ]
        },
        {
            "id": "2",
            "abbr": "fr",
            "data": [
                {
                    "textboxID": "1",
                    "text": "C'est en francais."
                },
                {
                    "textboxID": "2",
                    "text": "Francais 2"
                }
            ]
        }
    ]
}
