jQuery Question

Get json object with jquery without using the $.each



I want to retrieve the status of the first track

"@attr":{"nowplaying":"true"}


I have this code to retrieve information about each track

$.getJSON("http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/2.0/?method=user.getRecentTracks&user=melroymusic&api_key=690e1ed3bc00bc91804cd8f7fe5ed6d4&limit=3&format=json&callback=?",

function(data){
$.each(data.recenttracks.track, function(i,item){
$("#lastfmMenu").append("<div class='lastfmItem'><div class='lastfmText'>"+item.artist['#text']+"</div>" + "<div class='lastfmDate'>"+item.name+"</div></div>");
});
});


to retrieve the nowplaying status of the first track, logically I would do

$.getJSON("http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/2.0/?method=user.getRecentTracks&user=melroymusic&api_key=690e1ed3bc00bc91804cd8f7fe5ed6d4&limit=3&format=json&callback=?",

function(data){
if (data.recenttracks.track[0]['@attr'].nowplaying == true){
$("#lastfmMenu").append("Now Playing");
}
else {
$("#lastfmMenu").append("Just played");
}
});


doesn't give me any results.

Hope you can help me out.

Answer

Is it because nowplaying is a string not a bool, so it should be

.nowplaying == "true"?

Not at a pc so I can't check.
