Using a DataSet as a return type on an Atlas Javascript WebService call

If the WebService you are calling returns a DataSet it may not be obvious how to get to the data in the returned object.

Here is a little example which may help you on your way..

<script language="javascript">
function GetNuugget_OnRequestComplete(result)
    var resultsT = result[0];
    var resultRowCount = resultsT.get_length();

    for (var i = 0; i < resultRowCount; i++){

Notice the DataSet is an array of Table objects. Use the .getItem(rowIndex) method to return the row and the .getProperty(columnName | columnIndex) to access your data.
