JSON Question

Json decode returns null value

i know this question ask many time before but still i could't get this working.
i have a json and when i dump

output is this

string(71) "[{`TenantID`:``,`Name`:`12thdoor`}]"

i need to get the value inside
property. so i use json decode to convert this to php array but is returns

$jnTenant = json_decode($TenentsAccessible,TRUE);
$tenantID = $jnTenant["TenantID"];
var_dump($jnTenant); // this return null

i try to remove the
and unwanted characters using this

$TenentsAccessible = str_replace('"', '"', $TenentsAccessible);
$TenentsAccessible=preg_replace('/\s+/', '',$TenentsAccessible);

i know this type of question ask before but i still could't get this to work. appropriate the hlep. thanks


you can check your json code on JsonLint.

I tried your code and it's not correct because of backticks (`).

So you should replace with (") to have

    "TenantID": "",
    "Name": "12thdoor"

As hasan described in his answer, json_decode returns a multi-dimensional array, so to get TenantID:

$jnTenant = json_decode('[{"TenantID":"","Name":"12thdoor"}]',true);           
$tenantID = $jnTenant[0]['TenantID'];
var_dump($tenantID) ; 

If you want to get the "TenantID" in the way you described, you have to modify (if you can) the json like this

    "TenantID": "",
    "Name": "12thdoor"

Hope it helps.
