How to get HTTP JSON-response into HTML (Ionic2, Angular2, TypeScript, PHP, JSON)?

I am currently working on my first Ionic 2 app, but I am not yet very much into typescript..

I want to call the authenticate() method in my constructor and afterwards to

  1. get the whole JSON response into the textarea

  2. access the username and password value of the json response in my HTML


export class WelcomePage {
public data: string;
username: string;
password: string;

constructor(public navCtrl: NavController, public http: Http) {

authenticate() {
var creds = { username: 'user1', password: 'pw1' };

var headers = new Headers();
headers.append('Content-Type', 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded');'', creds, {
headers: headers
.map(res => res.json())

data =>,
err => this.logError(err),
() => console.log('Completed')

Response I already got from API:

{ "Person":[ {"Username":"user1","Password":"pw1"} ] }


<textarea>here: {{data}}</textarea>

--> textarea is empty


You would want to extract the object that is inside the array, which is inside Person:

.map(res => res.json().Person[0]) // extract object

Furthermore, you need to assign the data to like so:

   data => = data // here!

Then use (together with the safe navigation operator ? here.)

{{data?.Username}} and {{data?.Password}}
