$.ajax returning json adds decimal (.0) to whole numbers

When using $.ajax() that returns JSON data, the integers returned by the server code are given an extra decimal point.

For example:


type: "get"

,url: MYURL

,dataType: "json"

,success: function(result) {




The ID value in the JSON object is turned into a decimal. (i.e. 4 returned from server code is turned into 4.0)

I have checked that my server code is returning a whole number, 4, and not 4.0.
