How can I add an item to the beginning of an object?  This adds it to the end:
var obj={"b":2,"c":3,"d":4};
obj.a=1;
alert(JSON.stringify(obj));

Test page : http://jsfiddle.net/KpA8v/

var obj = {"b":2,"c":3,"d":4};
var bck = obj;
obj = {};
obj.a=1;
for(var i in bck) obj[i] = bck[i];
alert(JSON.stringify(obj));

Open in new window


But if you really need to maintain order use an array : http://jsfiddle.net/KpA8v/1/
var obj = [{"b":2},{"c":3},{"d":4}];
var o = {a:1};
obj.unshift(o);
alert(JSON.stringify(obj));
