Hello dears; for resolving the problem of bom in parsing json we must first search '{' character and then parse the input string from index of this char to end of input string; I have a thanks of you if you implement this in the $.parseJSON itself; for example: function doAjax() {


url: "ajax.aspx", data: { "dt": "Ali" }, type: "POST", contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8", dataType:"json", success: function (msg) {

try {

var x = msg.substr(msg.indexOf('{')); var r = $.parseJSON(x); $("#di1").html(r.data1); $("#di2").html(r.data2);

} catch (e) {






thanks alot by

Our intention with jQuery.parseJSON is to implement a cross-browser JSON.parse and nothing more. What do browsers do if you pass them a string with a BOM prefix? Can you provide a test case and your results in jQuery's supported browsers?
