Accessing nested key value pairs in javascript

Hi guys,

I have been able to implement a sort of password for a javascript package I am using, called jsPsych 5.0. I used a loop function and a survey-text plugin as follows:
 var password = {
      type: 'survey-text',
      questions: [{prompt: "Please enter the password provided to you by email", rows: 3, columns: 40}],

var loop_node_password = {
    timeline: [password],
    loop_function: function(data){
         var Responses = JSON.parse(data[0].responses);
         if (Responses.Q0 == "mypassword"){
              return false;
              return true;
              alert("Please enter the correct password")


Open in new window


This worked well.

Now, the problem I have is that var Responses = JSON.parse(data[0].responses); is returning Responses = {"Q0":"mypassword"}. Trying to access it using Responses.Q0 does not seem to work. Any help with this please? I need to access the value of the key Q0, I am not sure how to search for that in internet. I have tried Responses[Q0], Responses["Q0"], nothing works. All I need is to get the value of the "Q0":"mypassword" - i.e. mypassword. Any help please

All the best and thank you,

try to validate responses:

var key;

for (key in Responses) {
    if (Responses .hasOwnProperty(key)) {
        alert(key + " = " + Responses[key]);
// console.log(key + " = " + Responses[key]);

This should work for the data provided

Open in new window

Consider this code
var json = '{"Q0":"mypassword"}';
var Responses= JSON.parse(json);

Open in new window

Remember you can also access objects like arrays. For instance if you don't know the property you want and you are dynamically looking for one you can do
Responses["Q0"] is equivalent to Responses.Q0

If your code is not working - post the code so we can see the context.
