LOAD.JSON

[{ "name":"Kavi",

  6. Both <head> and <title> tags having their pair end tag, so we need to close the ending tags respectively. If you’re not closed anyone of ending tag properly that is also affect the webpage result.
  7. <body> tag is beginning of main coding part because it contain coding of entire website blocks and elements described here.
  8. We created table by <table> tag with one row contain table headers with three columns. Because our ‘load.json’ file has three keys and respective values.
  9. In <script> tag we called ajax() function with parameters, ‘url,dataType,data’ url for collects file from location, dataType defines file types our file is ‘json’ and data for specifies it’s a array type.
  10. When file successfully requested from server using for loop to get all values in array and stored to table row with respective column. Then row inserted to table using append() method.
  11. If its fail to get json data from server it throws error. Note when we execute must run the server first then only we can see result.
