I'm trying to create an internal VIN Decoding website that pulls data from an external site. I'm a newbee so please dont tear me apart with negative comments smile.gif I have the link to the API, i have the API key but the results i get after entering VIN is in JSON format.

Link Example:;api_key=mykey

First question is, how do I trigger the submit button to request decode of the vin entered in the text box, into the link example shown above. The only field that will change on the link will be the VIN which in this case is represented by 4T1BK1EB6DU056165.

<input id="id1" type="vin" max="17">
<button onclick="myFunction()">Submit</button>

And once I get the response in JSON, how do I display the code with styling in html? I tried the following code but no results

function setup() {
loadJSON("", gotData, 'jsonp);

Thanks any help you can give...
