In C#, I have successfully serialized an anonymous object into JSON by use of code like this…
However, what I would like to be able to do later is to deserialize the JSON string back into an anonymous object. Something like this…
var obj2 = serializer.Deserialize(output, object);
But the serializer.Deserialize() method requires a second parameter that is the type of object it will deserialize to.
I tried this…
var obj2 = serializer.Deserialize(output, obj.GetType());
But this produces an error:
No parameterless constructor defined for type of ‘<>f__AnonymousType0`2[[System.Int32, mscorlib, Version=184.108.40.206, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089],[System.String, mscorlib, Version=220.127.116.11, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089]]’.
I’m not sure what this error means.
JSON.Net is a powerful library to work with JSON in .Net
There’s a method DeserializeAnonymousType you can tap in to.
Update: Json.Net is now included with ASP.Net, however my latest favorite that I use is JsonFX. It’s got great linq support as well, check it out.
Update 2: I’ve moved on from JsonFX, and currently use ServiceStack.Text, it’s fast!
