I assume you're using a PHP backend? If so try stripslashes() before returning the data back via the ajax request.

Possible cause (if using a PHP backend) is multiple escaping, for example mysql_real_escape_string() and addslashes().

If this is just simply a Javascript problem, you could try just removing the slash

var.replace('\', '');

However I'd be weary of this solution, as if your returning anything that has (or needs) a legitiment \ then this would break your code.

Best of luck finding your solution.

You could perhaps help other users more (if neither of these are an appropriate solution) by elaborating more on the process of what you're doing, and where it's going wrong.

Dear MrDJK for telling me what is this!

i get it work already...:D

The solution is

Paste this function in my javascript
function stripslashes(str) {
return str;

and stripsplashes(response.Text) in ajax

and Wallah ! Success! :twisted:
