in c# need to create this structure.  Adding the children object I seem to be having trouble with children property  to render below.
Current code renders like
 [
        {
            id: 1,
            name: 'root1',
            children: [
               "id:" 2, name: 'child1' ,
               "id:" 3, name: 'child2' 
            ]
        }
    ];

Open in new window



The way it should render is like this below.
 [
        {
            id: 1,
            name: 'root1',
            children: [
                { id: 2, name: 'child1' },
                { id: 3, name: 'child2' }
            ]
        }
    ];

Open in new window


properties.

        public int id { get; set; }
        public string name { get; set; }
        public IList<string> children { get; set; }

Open in new window



class

 var attachmentsList = new List<ModelDto>();
 FileInfo[] files = dinfo.GetFiles();
                
                foreach (FileInfo file in files)
                {
                    attachmentsList.Add(new ModelDto
                    {
                      
                        id = i + 1,
                        name = "Folder " + i + 1,
                        children = new List<string>
                         {
                            id = i + 1,
                            name = file.name,
                   
                        }
                    });
     
                    i++;

                }

 var attachmentsList = new List<RootObject>();
 attachmentsList.Add(new RootObject
                    {
                        id = i + 1,
                        name = "Folder" + i + 1,
                        children = new List<Child>()

Open in new window

Ok this is where I get stuck at. Cannot add the name and the id inside the children also.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

This?

            var attachmentList = new List<RootObject>();
            attachmentList.Add(
                new RootObject()
                {
                    id = i + 1,
                    name = "Folder" + (i + 1).ToString(),
                    children = new List<Child>()
                });

yes but   children = new List<Child>() cannot add the other properties. tryied the other ways in json.net but since I have to return a list the other ways will not let me.
