Display JSON Data in HTML Table

I get the following JSON String from server as response

[{"city":"AMBALA","cStatus":"Y"},{"city":"ASANKHURD","cStatus":"Y"},{"city":"ASSANDH","cStatus":"Y"}]


Here is my Jquery Code

$('#search').click(function() {
alert("submit handler has fired");
$.ajax({
type: 'POST',
url: 'cityResults.htm',
data: $('#cityDetails').serialize(),
success: function(data){
alert(data);
},
error: function(jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown){
alert('error: ' + textStatus + ': ' + errorThrown);
}
});
return false;//suppress natural form submission
});


The alert shows the JSON String Correctly. Now i want to map this response to my table

say



How can i do that ??

Answer

Try this:

CSS:

.hidden{display:none;}

HTML:

<table id="table" class="hidden">
    <tr>
        <th>City</th>
        <th>Status</th>
    </tr>
</table>

JS:

$('#search').click(function() {
    $.ajax({
        type: 'POST',
        url: 'cityResults.htm',
        data: $('#cityDetails').serialize(),
        dataType:"json", //to parse string into JSON object,
        success: function(data){ 
            if(data){
                var len = data.length;
                var txt = "";
                if(len > 0){
                    for(var i=0;i<len;i++){
                        if(data[i].city && data[i].cStatus){
                            txt += "<tr><td>"+data[i].city+"</td><td>"+data[i].cStatus+"</td></tr>";
                        }
                    }
                    if(txt != ""){
                        $("#table").append(txt).removeClass("hidden");
                    }
                }
            }
        },
        error: function(jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown){
            alert('error: ' + textStatus + ': ' + errorThrown);
        }
    });
    return false;//suppress natural form submission
});
