Parsing Json string with Json.net

Hi guys,

I have the following Json string:
[{"Key":"EmployeeType","Value":"Full"},{"Key":"ID","Value":"123456"}]

I create Employee class as follow:
public class Employee
{
        public KeyValuePair<string, string>[] Properties { get; set; }
}

And I called
Employee[] employees = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<Employee[]>(JsonString);

Since I want it to be printed as
EmployeeType: Full
ID: 123456

so I used the following code:
foreach (var eID in employees)
             {
                 foreach (var item in eID.Properties)
                 {
                     Console.WriteLine("{0}: {1}", item.Key, item.Value);
                 }
             }

However, I am getting "NullReferenceException was unhandled" exception on foreach line.

Can anybody let me know how I can fix this issue?

Thanks!!!

Your class doesn't appropriately represent the JSON. Really, all you need is the KeyValuePair<string, string>:

KeyValuePair<string, string>[] employees = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<KeyValuePair<string, string>[]>(JsonString);

Open in new window


Then use it as:

foreach (KeyValuePair<string, string> item in employees)
{
    Console.WriteLine("{0}: {1}", item.Key, item.Value);
}

Open in new window
