Did you check the SPFieldUrlValue class? – Vardhaman Deshpande Nov 17 '12 at 18:43
Yes - there's no complete example on there of how to use it. – Ryan Nov 17 '12 at 18:45

Here is the working code:

var context = SP.ClientContext.get_current();
var myListItem = context.get_web().get_lists().getByTitle("ListName").getItemById(1);

I did this and it worked fine. But it only gets a single record without using a CAML query. I tried to to add the the .get_url() and get_description() to my code that loops through all the items while (enumerator.moveNext()) { var listItem = enumerator.get_current(); markup += '<td>' + listItem.get_item('Name') + '</td>'; markup += '<td>' + listItem.get_item('Level') + '</td>'; markup += '<td> + listItem.get_item("URL").get_description() + '</td>'; markup +='</tr>'; This failed. If I remove the .get_description() it returns [object, Object]. Ideas why how to fit? – PianoMan Jun 10 at 21:15
