Float array in c# - when passed to JS it's in wrong order

Hi, I have the float array which is populated in c#

temperatureData= new float[570, 429];

Open in new window

I then prepare the data in c# to be send to the front end by doing the following (this might be where its going wrong)

System.Web.Script.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer jSearializer = new System.Web.Script.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer();
jSearializer.MaxJsonLength = int.MaxValue;
pd.TemperatureDataArray = jSearializer.Serialize(temperatureData);

ViewBag.TempDataArray = pd.TemperatureDataArray;

Open in new window

then in the front end i have

var tempDataArray = @(ViewBag.TempDataArray);

var imageTemperatureDataArray = JSON.stringify(tempDataArray);
imageTemperatureDataArray = JSON.parse(imageTemperatureDataArray);

alert(imageTemperatureDataArray[321, 228]);

Open in new window

However the value in position 321,228 in JS is not the same as in C#, so i assume its re-ordered the data some how

Can anyone advise where its getting muddled up?

I've attached the dataset which is was taken on a BP on this line
ViewBag.TempDataArray = pd.TemperatureDataArray

The correct value in the float array at this position  [321, 228] should be 346.795624
However in the front end i'm seeing 304.92453

Have you check your indices? Not that you're off by one..

Yes, I did check the surrounding values, it's not the issue
two dimensional array don't really exists in JavaScript

when you can do :
arr[321, 228] = 346.795624;

in JavaScript you do :
a[321][228] = 346.795624;

and get a JSON object like this :

why the following lines ? seems to be useless for me.
var imageTemperatureDataArray = JSON.stringify(tempDataArray); // create a string from an object/JSON(?)
imageTemperatureDataArray = JSON.parse(imageTemperatureDataArray); create an object from a JSON string

what about :
var imageTemperatureDataArray = @(ViewBag.TempDataArray);
alert( imageTemperatureDataArray[321][228] );

Open in new window

if that don't work please post what you get in the alert with :
var imageTemperatureDataArray = @(ViewBag.TempDataArray);
alert( JSON.stringify(imageTemperatureDataArray) );

Open in new window

or in the browser console developer tools with :
var imageTemperatureDataArray = @(ViewBag.TempDataArray);
console.log( JSON.stringify(imageTemperatureDataArray) );

Agree with @leakim971 that the extra serialization isn't necessary. Try this instead:

var imageTemperatureDataArray = @Html.Raw(ViewBag.TempDataArray);

Hey guys, sorry for bringing this up again, but I have a slightly different issue

I've also accessed this float array from a ajax url.action Post
In the CS i return an object in JSONResult
However its a javascript variable at this point and cannot run @Html.Raw(ViewBag.TempDataArray);
its coming back as
[[273.7,273.8,273.8,274.6,274.4 etc

And I need to convert it to array as this did: @Html.Raw(ViewBag.TempDataArray);

Any ideas?
