JSON Data Truncated When Calling $.ajax Funciton

Reported by: dancablam Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.2.2
Component: core Version: 1.2.1
Keywords: json ajax Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

When calling an AJAX request like so:


type: "GET",

url: "script.php",

dataType: "json",

cache: false,

async: false,

success: function(data){

obj = data;



The $.ajax function will only process approximately 50 characters of the return string, ignoring the rest.

Example JSON Response:


The above JSON string will return: Object layer=48 type=text width=43 height=9 - and will ignore the remainder of the string.

This does note appear to be an issue with the format of the JSON response - if I remove layer, type, width, and height from the above string, then ratio and the remainders will display (up to the next 50 characters).

I have also attempted this response with async set to true - same issue.

Please advise.

Many thanks,

Additional Info:

The same issue also occurs when calling $.getJSON

Also, I am specifying the correct content type: Content-Type: text/json

Problem was traced to my debugger program, which was not reporting all elements returned in the created object, jquery was NOT at fault. Please close and thanks!
