How to convert JSON string to array of JSON objects using JavaScript ?

Given a JSON string and the task is to convert the JSON string to the array of JSON objects. This array contains the values of JavaScript object obtained from the JSON string with the help of JavaScript. There are two approaches to solve this problem which are discussed below:

Approach 1: First convert the JSON string to the JavaScript object using JSON.Parse() method and then take out the values of the object and push them into the array using push() method.

  • Example:

    filter_none

    edit
    close

    play_arrow

    link
    brightness_4
    code

        <p id = "GFG_UP"></p>
          
        <button onclick = "myGFG()">
            Click Here
        </button>
          
        <p id = "GFG_DOWN"></p>
          
        <script>
            var up = document.getElementById("GFG_UP");
              
            var JS_Obj = 
            '{"prop_1":"val_1", "prop_2":"val_2", "prop_3" : "val_3"}';
              
            up.innerHTML = "JSON string - '" + JS_Obj + "'";
              
            var down = document.getElementById("GFG_DOWN");
              
            function myGFG() {
                var obj = JSON.parse(JS_Obj);
                var res = [];
                  
                for(var i in obj)
                    res.push(obj[i]);
                  
                down.innerHTML = "Array of values - ["
                                + res + "]";
            }
        </script
    </body
      
    </html>

Approach 2: This approach is also the same but using a different method. Convert the JSON string to the JavaScript object using eval() method and then take out the values of the object and push them to the array using push() method.

  • Example:

    filter_none

    edit
    close

    play_arrow

            var JS_Obj = 
            '{"prop_1":"val_1", "prop_2":"val_2", "prop_3" : "val_3"}';
              
            up.innerHTML = "JSON string - '" + JS_Obj + "'";
              
            var down = document.getElementById("GFG_DOWN");
              
            function myGFG() {
                var obj = eval('(' + JS_Obj + ')');
                var res = [];
                  
                for(var i in obj)
                    res.push(obj[i]);
                  
                down.innerHTML = "Array of values - ["
                                + res + "]";
            }
