JSON Deserialization

I have a complex user defined class that contains strings, and int, but also contains other class types, and lists of classes. A simple example is below:

public class Data
{
      public Int32 Id { get; set; }
      public String Name { get; set; }
      public List<Items> Items { get; set; }
}

public class Item
{
      public Int32 Id { get; set; }
      public String Name { get; set; }
}

Open in new window




I have managed to serialize an instance of this class using SimpleJSON.

The problem I have is de-serializing it back to an instance of the original strongly typed class.  

I have spent hours search the web, but cannot find any simple definitive answer.

Have you tried Json.Net? It's very easy to serialize/deserialize objects with this library, even if your objects contains complex properties.

Hope that helps.
