echo javascript json array

i have a script that's retrieving a json string through ajax.

if i alert(data), i get:
{"account_id":805267,"customer_id":882315,"account_name":"","account_number":"6011xxxxxxxxxxx0000"," enabled":false,"type":"2","bank_name":"","cc_name":"","expiration":"1215","is_savings":false,"date_a dded":"20120210","date_modified":"20120210"}
in a popup window...

but if i
alert(data.account_number), i get
"undefined" in a popup window.

what am i doing wrong?

BAH!!! (need to be reviewing my javascript books and notes everyday)

alert( $.parseJSON(data).account_number ); does it.

You don't need to use $.parseJSON() in AJAX call. Instead you should use $.getJSON() or set dataType to 'json' for $.ajax(). This way jQuery will parse JSON data for you, and you'll be able to use it right away.
