I created a json with PHP code as shown below.

How remove square brackets from service details (ie,inner square brackets used for storing service details)

PHP code:
$CheckSql2 = "SELECT * FROM leadservices,services WHERE leadservices.leadslno='$leadsl'";
while($row2 =$check2->fetch_assoc())
 $output2[] = array("service_id" => 
 $row2['service_id'],"service_name" => 
$leadarray[] = $empleadresult;
$trimmed['LeadDetailsObject'] = str_replace('\r\n','', $eadarray);
echo json_encode($trimmed,JSON_UNESCAPED_SLASHES);

What I have tried:

		"empname": "Anuj Sharma",
		"empemailid": "",
		"service": [
			"service_id": "6",
			"service_name": "Landscaping And Gardening"
			"service_id": "2",
			"service_name": "Civil Finishing And Tumkey Civil Projects"

Looking at the JSON, you can't remove the inner square brackets: they define the collection under "service", and since that contains two elements you can't discard the enclosing square brackets without making the resulting JSON invalid and unreadable.

Why would you think that was a good idea?

I know this is not a good idea.But in ios the inner square brackets not accepting. Is there any other idea ?

Use a "proper" json processor that produces classes instead of "rolling your own"?

Is this correct way of displaying output?

"SurveyObject": {
"EmpOject": [
"id": "1",
"leadslno": "4",

"SubObject": [
"id": "2",
"leadslno": "4",

Don't ask me what your output should be - I have no idea what you are trying to achieve!

Remember that we can't see your screen, access your HDD, or read your mind - we only get exactly what you type to work with, we get no context beyond that at all.

Sorry sir...i am just asking about json format.Is it correct format or not ?

It's valid JSON, yes. Is it what you wanted? No idea! :laugh:

If you want to check JSON, there are online code converters:
Is the one I use most often - it checks the JOSN and generates the relevant C# classes if it's OK. There are probably PHP equivalents out there.
