I'm calling the following:  The service works and returns  JSON - tested in browser and fiddler
But when I try and parse the response I get UNDEFINED.

Here's the code

 $.ajax({
                            type: "GET",
                            url: url,
                            data: params
                            contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
                            dataType: "json",
                            success: OnSuccess,
                            error: OnError
                        });



  function OnSuccess(data, status) {

           alert(status);
           alert(data);    // UNDEFINED

 var json = JSON.parse(data)   // UNEXPECT TOKEN 0




ANY IDEAS?

Do you have check what the services is suppose to return with the same params ?

Can you enter in debug mode to see what you function really return to your ajax query ?

Your services is in wich programming language ?

First i think you don't need to do " JSON.parse(data) " because the result is suppose to be an object. You be suppose to call directly your property. Ex:
ALERT(data.FIRSTNAME)

Open in new window

If your in asp.net(not mvc page but in an aspx page) you can try
data.m.FIRSTNAME 

Open in new window

WebMethod  had
BodyStyle = WebMessageBodyStyle.Wrapped,
Which puts a the service name around the JSON.

I remove it and it works.

data:  Object
  Get_UserResult: Object
   FIRSTNAME: "John"
   LASTNAME: "Smtih
