injecting JSON record to HTML

Mattaeos Published in 2017-12-07 22:42:07Z

I'm trying to get the artist name, among other fields, to be visible within the HTML page. As you can see from the code posted, the image is already showing on the page, so we don't quite understand where the issue lies.

window.addEventListener("load", function() {
  document.getElementById('searchform').addEventListener('submit', search);

//load V&A museum objects
function search(evt) {
  var query = document.getElementById('query').value.trim();
  var url = "http://www.vam.ac.uk/api/json/museumobject/search?images=1&q=" + encodeURIComponent(query);


  var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
  xhr.addEventListener("load", function() {
    if (xhr.readyState == 4 && xhr.status == 200) {
      var i, item, img_id, img_url, img, artist,
        target = document.getElementById("result"),
        json = JSON.parse(xhr.responseText);

      for (i = 0; i < json.records.length; i++) {
        item = json.records[i];
        console.log("artist = " + item.fields.artist);
        img_id = item.fields.primary_image_id;
        img_url = "http://media.vam.ac.uk/media/thira/collection_images/" +
          img_id.substr(0, 6) +
          "/" +
          img_id +

        img = document.createElement("img");
        img.setAttribute("src", img_url, );

        artist = item.fields.artist;
        artist = document.createElement("h1");
        artist.setAttribute("h1", artist);
        artist = document.createElement("br");
  xhr.open('GET', url, true); //true for asynchronous
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">

  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">

  <link rel="stylesheet" href="va.css">
  <title>Victoria &amp; Albert Museum API TEST</title>
  <script src="va.js"></script>

  <!--<button id="button">Search</button>
    <h1>Museum Objects</h1>
    <div id="objects"></div>-->

  <form id="searchform" class="form">
    <input type="text" id="query">
    <input type="submit" id="button">

  <div id="result" class="objects">
    <!-- <div id="artists"><h1>Artists</h1></div> -->


The result is an image being pulled from the VA API, followed by the artist name. The image is visible but the artist only gets printed to the console.

I think the issue is the setting of attribute, along with the overwriting of artist as suggested.

artistName = item.fields.artist;
artist = document.createElement("h1");
var newContent = document.createTextNode(artistName);
