Hi I am new to Rest API, and have found the RestSharp plugin for Visual Studio.

I've managed to mingle together a call to a dummy service, within our business, and need a little help with the response.content being returned.

	"apiSpecification": {
		"versions": [{
			"major": "5",
			"minor": "1",
			"patch": "3",
			"build": "2"
	"loginFields": [{
		"name": "User",
		"description": "The user name",
		"key": "com.security.provider.login.user",
		"length": 40,
		"maskedField": false
	}, {
		"name": "Realm",
		"description": "The authentication realm",
		"key": "com.security.provider.login.realm",
		"length": 40,
		"maskedField": false
	}, {
		"name": "Password",
		"description": "The user password",
		"key": "com.security.provider.login.password",
		"length": 40,
		"maskedField": true

Open in new window

I'm not sure, how to handle the above JSON being returned. I've created two new classes, one called ApiSpecification and another called LoginDetails, but have no idea, how to get at the value.

Any guidance would be most welcome.
