Javascript Question

Cannot read properties of a JavsScript function

I have a php array that I'm

ing into a JavaScript object. When I preview the object in console, it looks something like this:

Object { 1="some text", 2="something else", 3="extra text"}

Shouldn't I be able to read the value for index 1 like this (pretending my object name is obj)?


Doing that gives me the
error message. How would access the value for the exact index of 1?


You can only access a property using dot notation if the property name is a valid identifier. Identifiers cannot start with a number.

You have to use square bracket notation for other properties.
