Last Modified: 2016-03-22
I have the following statement

  var test = { 'PropertyID': 'CL' };

if gets used to pull data from the server.    

   data: JSON.stringify(test),

 works fine I always get the CL data.  However I need to create that same string but The CL will change, and gotten from a local storage.  This is what I have tried with no success so far.  Thanks in advance for fixing this for me.

 var myProperty = localStorage.getItem("SelectedProperty")

        var test2 = '{'+'PropertyID'+':'+ myProperty +'}'
