[SOLVED] How to Convert JSON object to Custom C# object?

Issue

Is there an easy way to populate my C# Object with the JSON object passed via AJAX?

This is the JSON Object passed to C# WEBMETHOD from the page using JSON.stringify

{
    "user": {
        "name": "asdf",
        "teamname": "b",
        "email": "c",
        "players": ["1", "2"]
    }
}

C# WebMetod That receives the JSON Object

[WebMethod]
public static void SaveTeam(Object user)
{

}

C# Class that represents the object structure of JSON Object passed in to the WebMethod

public class User
{
    public string name { get; set; }
    public string teamname { get; set; }
    public string email { get; set; }
    public Array players { get; set; }
}

Solution

A good way to use JSON in C# is with JSON.NET

Quick Starts & API Documentation from JSON.NET – Official site help you work with it.

An example of how to use it:

public class User
{
    public User(string json)
    {
        JObject jObject = JObject.Parse(json);
        JToken jUser = jObject["user"];
        name = (string) jUser["name"];
        teamname = (string) jUser["teamname"];
        email = (string) jUser["email"];
        players = jUser["players"].ToArray();
    }

    public string name { get; set; }
    public string teamname { get; set; }
    public string email { get; set; }
    public Array players { get; set; }
}

// Use
private void Run()
{
    string json = @"{""user"":{""name"":""asdf"",""teamname"":""b"",""email"":""c"",""players"":[""1"",""2""]}}";
    User user = new User(json);

    Console.WriteLine("Name : " + user.name);
    Console.WriteLine("Teamname : " + user.teamname);
    Console.WriteLine("Email : " + user.email);
    Console.WriteLine("Players:");

    foreach (var player in user.players)
        Console.WriteLine(player);
 }
