I will give my best to provide you the easiest way of creating this program Convert form data into JSON Object. So let's do the coding.

Before we get started:

Creating The Interface

This is where we will create a simple interface for our application. This code will display html form and JSON object. To create this simply copy and write it into your text editor, then save it as index.html.
  1. <!DOCTYPE html>
  2. <html lang="en">
  3. <head>
  4. <meta charset="UTF-8" name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"/>
  5. <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/bootstrap.css"/>
  6. </head>
  7. <nav class="navbar navbar-default">
  8. <div class="container-fluid">
  9. <a class="navbar-brand" href="">Sourcecodester</a>
  10. </div>
  11. </nav>
  12. <div class="col-md-3"></div>
  13. <div class="col-md-6 well">
  14. <h3 class="text-primary">How to Convert HTML Inputs to JSON Object</h3>
  15. <hr style="border-top:1px dotted #ccc;"/>
  16. <div class="col-md-8">
  17. <h3>JSON RESULT</h3>
  18. <div id="result"></div>
  19. </div>
  20. <div class="col-md-4">
  21. <div class="form-group">
  22. <label>Firstname</label>
  23. <input type="text" class="form-control" id="firstname"/>
  24. </div>
  25. <div class="form-group">
  26. <label>Lastname</label>
  27. <input type="text" class="form-control" id="lastname"/>
  28. </div>
  29. <center><button onclick="convertToJson()" class="btn btn-primary">Submit</button></center>
  30. </div>
  31. </div>
  32. </body>
  33. <script src="script.js"></script>
  34. </html>

Creating JavaScript Function

This is where the main function of the application is. This code will dynamically convert your html form data into JSON object when the button is clicked. To do this just copy and write these block of codes inside the text editor and save it as script.js.
  1. let member = JSON.parse('{"members":[]}');
  4. function displayJson(firstname, lastname, json){
  5. document.getElementById('result').innerHTML = "<pre>"+json+"</pre>";
  6. firstname.value = "";
  7. lastname.value = "";
  8. }
  11. function convertToJson(){
  12. let firstname = document.getElementById('firstname');
  13. let lastname = document.getElementById('lastname');
  15. if(firstname.value == "" || lastname.value == ""){
  16. alert("Please complete the required field!");
  17. }else{
  18. let str = '{"firstname": "'+firstname.value+'", "lastname": "'+lastname.value+'"}';
  19. member['members'].push(str);
  20. let stringify = JSON.stringify(member, null, ' ');
  21. let json = stringify.replace(/\\/g, '');
  23. displayJson(firstname, lastname, json);
  24. }
  25. }

In the code above we create a method called convertToJson(), this function will convert the html form data into JSON object. We bind first the two input into variables then create a JSON structure with the two variables in it called str. We push the structure to array object and then we use JSON.stringify() function to make turn the array into JSON object.
