RestService post Json data

Hi,

I have succesfully manged to use GET to read data from a restservice and am now attempting to POST data to the same service. I have a class which I am converting to json data but I am unsure of how to attach the data to the webrequest. The code is below can anyone advise me?

The Data:

{"text":"Trial from desktop","userID":"JOE","account":"systems","read":"False","subject":"Test","inout":"in"}

The Code correct credentials used in my app:

Private Sub tiggzipost()
        Dim request As HttpWebRequest
        Dim response As HttpWebResponse = Nothing
        Dim reader As StreamReader
        Dim message As New Message()
        message.text = "Trial from desktop"
        message.userID = "JOE"
        message.account = "systems"
        message.read = "false"
        message.subject = "Test"
        message.inout = "in"
        Dim output As String = JsonConvert.SerializeObject(message)
        Debug.Print(output)
        Try


            request = DirectCast(WebRequest.Create ("https://api.tiggzi.com/rest/1/db/collections/messages"), HttpWebRequest)
            request.Credentials = New NetworkCredential("XXXXX", "XXXXX")
            request.Headers.Add("X-Tiggzi-Database-Id:50b3a60XXXXXXXXXXXX")

            request.Method = "POST"
            request.ContentType = "application/json"

           
            response = DirectCast(request.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)


            reader = New StreamReader(response.GetResponseStream())

         
            Debug.Print(reader.ReadToEnd())
        Finally
            If Not response Is Nothing Then response.Close()
        End Try
    End Sub
