I'm writing a C# .Net function that reads a Json message sent as part of a HttpRequest. The HttpRequestMessage includes the Json message as in an encoded format and as a parameter as follows (for example):

The problem I have is how to read and decode the Json data in my C# function (the function is running in Azure).

My code starts like this:

using System.Net;
using System.Web;
using Newtonsoft.Json;
using Newtonsoft.Json.Linq;
using System.Net.Http;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

public static async Task<HttpResponseMessage> Run(HttpRequestMessage req, TraceWriter log)


    string jsonContent = await req.Content.ReadAsStringAsync(); //This works fine and reads the encoded Json message
     JObject o = JObject.Parse(jsonContent); // This comes back with error: Newtonsoft.Json: Unexpected character encountered while parsing value: p. Path '', line 0, position 0.

If I test using a decoded httpsrequestmessage, everything works fine. However, with the encoded Json value, I can't read the data. The encoded Json data is sent from another system so I have no control to …

I've used the visual studio paste special as JSON class on the first result as that seems to have more info
I'm using the 2nd result as the  test scenario

I then use this code

JSON Formatting Tool

What is the best tool (that's quick & easy) to take JSON in a "paragraph/horizontal" format,
and format it into the "common way" vertically so it's easier to read?

Even better, if you can do the same thing, but convert to YAML (vertically).

It can be a standalone tool if need be...or some kind of plugin. FYI...I typically use Visual Studio 'Code' for my
text editor in general, so if that helps with any ideas. However, I'm open to use other suggestions, at least for this purpose.

When I decode AWS encode errors messages, it comes out all smashed together in a horizontal format, almost as
cryptic as the encoded message itself and it's hard to read.
Hi All

I am working on C# Desktop App.  My below code is working fine for retrieving JSON data from api when I am using http url.
 using (var w = new WebClient())

                // attempt to download JSON data as a string
                  json_data = w.DownloadString(url);
               Catch(Exception ex)

But when the url started using https, then my above code started giving me following exception.

[System.Net.WebException] = {"The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a send."}

Can anyone Kindly help me sort out this exception.

Thanks in adance.

I have an array of checkboxes coming from a collection.

See below:

    Select days in a week :

    <input value="{{item.check}}" type="checkbox" checked="item.check" formControlName = "selectedDays">  {{item}}

Open in new window

formControlName I am set as selectedDays.

I need to generate JSON object for the selected checkbox values.

Currently, i am getting boolean value in selectedDays. But I am supposed to get an array of checked values in an array inside JSON object.

this.dayList = ['Sun', 'Mon', 'Tue','Wed',"Thu","Fri","Sat"];

JSON Object looks like below, please note the value of selectedDays, it is supposed to be "Sun, Mon" based on selection, but it is showing as true.

HelIo to the experts

I created a spring boot application which uses the "@RestController Annotation" to generate an "ArrayList" as JSON. This will look like this:

[{"id":2374273, "url": "https://google.com"}, {"id":2374274, "url": "https://google.com"}]

Open in new window

However, the output should be as follows:

{"urls": [{"id":2374273, "url": "https://google.com"}, {"id":2374274, "url": "https://google.com"}]}

Open in new window

That means the JSON array should have an array name (name = "urls") in the output.

How can I solve this?

PowerApps problem:

I have a gallery that has items = Clients, a second gallery items = Projects where Client name = selected client gallery name.  That works just fine.

I also have an icon to add a new project for the selected client and it navigates to a new screen displaying a form for Projects, displaymode = new.  I also use JSON code to display the client name which is a lookup field in Projects pointing to clients.  the default on the datacard displays the correct Client title on the form.

However, when I submitform, I get a server error.  I have determined this error is that the client name lookup does not have a proper value.  In order to get the value correct, I have to click on the dropdown and choose a value from the list of client items.  I don't want this to be the case for users as the app should maintain the links automatically.

I have also created new lists and get the same result (just a title in Client, title and lookup in Projects).  I assume some attribute for the item or datacard is incorrect but can't find out which one.  I have been told this is just supposed to work, but not for me.  Please help

We are using a LPR (License Plate Recognition) system developed by OpenALPR.com and it has an option to send license plate data to a webhook.

I wanted to know if anyone could think of a way to process the JSON data from the webhook and have it come out the other end looking like a POS (Point of Sale) device or even just in a format that would be able to be sent to a real POS device.

The goal is to use the webhook to send the JSON data which contains license plate, vehicle make, and color to my VMS (Avigilon) which accepts POS data so that video can be tagged with the information about the cars directly in the VMS software.
