Hello experts.
I need help to get data from deserializeJSON string with multi level structures.
example code:
<cfset responseString = '{"Test1":{"map":{"id":"1","label":"Test1"},"sortOrder":1},"Test2":{"map":{"id":"2","label":"Test2"},"sortOrder":21}}'>
<cfset responseString = deserializeJSON(responseString)>
<cfdump var="#responseString#">
Using cfloop i want to insert the id ,label and sortorder for each item (Test1 ,Test2)
Any help?

Loop through the top level keys and extract the substructure. Then grab the value of the relevant keys: id, label, sortOrder.

<cfset responseString = '{"Test1":{"map":{"id":"1","label":"Test1"},"sortOrder":1},"Test2":{"map":{"id":"2","label":"Test2"},"sortOrder":21}}'>

<cfset response = deserializeJSON(responseString)>

<cfloop collection="#response#" item="key">
	<!--- extract current structure --->
	<cfset item = response[key]>

	<!--- DEMO: Display id, label and sort order --->
	<cfoutput>
	id : #item.map.id# 
	label : #item.map.label# 
	order : #item.sortOrder# 
	</cfoutput>
	<br>
</cfloop>
