Hello i am getting an error TypeError: data is null i can't find the error.


username='<?php echo $_GET['public_username']; ?>';
apiBaseUrl='<?php echo $base_url; ?>';



function singleArtist(apiBaseUrl,username)
    var html ='';
    var encodedata=JSON.stringify({"username":username});
    var url=apiBaseUrl+'api/singleArtist'; 
    ajaxPost(url,encodedata, function(data) {
            $.each(data, function(i,data)
                html += 'dddddd';
            $('#singleArtist').html( html );


function singleArtist()
$request = \Slim\Slim::getInstance()->request();
$data = json_decode($request->getBody());
    $sql = "SELECT * FROM users WHERE username=:username ";
    try {
        $db = getDB();
        $stmt = $db->prepare($sql);
        $stmt->bindParam("username", $username,PDO::PARAM_STR);
        $singleArtist = $stmt->fetchAll(PDO::FETCH_OBJ);
        $db = null;
        echo '{"singleArtist": ' . json_encode($singleArtist) . '}';
    } catch(PDOException $e) {
        echo '{"error":{"text49":'. $e->getMessage() .'}}'; 


My guess would be "Line 17" of the above Javascript.

If no "data" is passed to the function (which is in Line 16), then data will be a NULL Object, which does not have a "length" method.

Exception thrown: most likely in line 17 of the Javascript.
Root cause: most likely in line 16: no "data" is passed over to the function.

It should be a value passed. When i put the sql script on phpmyadmin it returns tha value as wanted

Why not put a console.log right before

if (data.length ...

between existing line 16 and line 17 which echoes the details of data?

sorry for the delay maba001 i did

            if( data.length )

and on the console JS returns this null
