I am new to deserialization using JSON, so I need to know how to create a class object that gets assigned the values from the deserialization process.  I have the following data retrieved in JSON that I would like to properly create a class and be able to throw that information into the created class.  Please help!  Thanks!

{
    "response":
     {
                  "authToken":  "webapi123431095"
     },
    "status":
     {
              "detail":
               {
               },
               "success": true
     }
}

There are plenty of examples on how to do this. For instance, my comment here:

The basic idea is that anywhere in your JSON that you have curly braces ( {} ), you will be creating a new class; anywhere in your JSON that you have square brackets ( [] ), you will be creating an array; everything else is just a property. You need to create a "root" class to hold the overall JSON once it's converted.

In your case, you might define a root class as:

public class ServiceResponse
{
}

Open in new window


...which will have two properties:

public class ServiceResponseModel
{
    public XXXX Response { get; set; }
    pulbic YYYY Status { get; set; }
}

Open in new window


Now, both response and status are followed by curly braces, so that means you need a new class for each:

public class ResponseModel
{
    public string AuthToken { get; set; }
}

public class StatusModel
{
    ZZZZ  // I'll let you fill in ZZZZ  = )
}

Open in new window


These new classes will be the types for the two new properties:

public class ServiceResponseModel
{
    public ResponseModel Response { get; set; }
    pulbic StatusModel Status { get; set; }
}

Open in new window


Once you fill in everything, it's just a matter of passing the data and the type information (i.e. ServiceResponseModel) to the serializer.
