}
Here is my question, how to convert one of the response to be a PHP Variable?

From "user_group_id": 2 to $user_group_id = 2.

New Question

I get an answer from Hassaan and i follow his instruction,

I edit my php script to be like below:
Mã:
$response = file_get_contents('http://forum.mydomain.com/api.php?action=getUsers&value=Contex&hash=Contex:9f86d081884c7d659a2feaa0c55ad015a3bf4f1b2b0b822cd15d6c15b0f00a08');
$response = json_decode($response, true);
echo $response->user_id;
And i test it and get a new error message.
Mã:
Notice: Trying to get property of non-object.
How to fix it? Thanks!

You need to use json_decode()
Mã:
$response = json_decode($str);
$user_group_id = $response->user_group_id;

echo $user_group_id;
Note Replace $str with your API response variable.

Try Example
Mã:
$str = <<<JSON

{
  "visible": 1,
  "user_group_id": 2,
  "user_state": "valid",
  "language_id": 1,
  "username": "Contex",
  "email": "me@contex.me",
  "timezone": "Europe\/Berlin",
  "gender": "male",
  "style_id": 0,
  "secondary_group_ids": "",
  "display_style_group_id": 2,
  "permission_combination_id": 2,
  "message_count": 0,
  "alerts_unread": 0,
  "conversations_unread": 0,
  "register_date": 1368197942,
  "last_activity": 1368197942,
  "trophy_points": 0,
  "avatar_date": 0,
  "avatar_width": 0,
  "avatar_height": 0,
  "gravatar": "",
  "is_moderator": 0,
  "is_admin": 0,
  "is_banned": 0,
  "like_count": 0,
  "custom_title": "",
  "warning_points": 0,

  "dob_day": 27,
  "dob_month": 12,
  "dob_year": 1980,
  "csrf_token": "f5c36cd98569ae380b4c0383d8310954514ac64b",

  "remember_key": "11d20c2e9ffbbd7466a872dacf18051a47d94dce"
}

JSON;


$response = json_decode($str);
$user_group_id = $response->user_group_id;

echo $user_group_id;

Hello, i just realize that the decoded response is a multi-dimensional array. So i can successfully call the variable with this code -> echo $response[0]->user_id; Thanks for your answer.
