Read and parse JSON in C# / .NET Framework

access_time 2 years ago visibility439 comment 0

JSON is commonly used in modern applications for data storage and transfers. Pretty much all programming languages provide APIs to parse JSON. 

There are many libraries you can use in .NET/C# to parse JSON content.

Json.NET (Newtonsoft.Json) is one of the commonly used library. The package information is available on the following page:

https://www.nuget.org/packages/Newtonsoft.Json

Code snippet

using Newtonsoft.Json;
using System;

namespace ConsoleApp1
{
    class Program
    {
        public class MyType
        {
            public string Name { get; set; }
            public int Value { get; set; }
        }
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            var jsonStr = "{\"Name\":\"A\",\"Value\":2}";
            Console.WriteLine(jsonStr);
            var jsonObj = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject(jsonStr);
            Console.WriteLine(jsonObj.Name);
            Console.WriteLine(jsonObj.Value);
            Console.ReadLine();
        }
    }
}
