            Console.WriteLine(Server.UrlDecode((string)jo["ItemName"])); //use Server.UrlDecode to reverse the text that was escaped before it was passed in to its original state

            //do data saving logic here and return the recordid
            //int recordid=SaveToDataBase(jo);

            Response.Write((string)jo["CategoryID"]); //this send to responseText of .ajax(options).responseText
