I am getting a json response from a URL which I am trying parse it and capture code to store in the DB

Its returning the string ok but I am unable to remove the quoted strings to save the code in the DB

 Dim jResults As Object = JObject.Parse(Json)
        Dim jsonResulttodict = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject(Of Dictionary(Of String, Object))(Json)
        Dim firstItem = jsonResulttodict.Item("error")
        Dim seconditem = jsonResulttodict.Item("success")
        Dim thirditem = jsonResulttodict.Item("codes")

example string:

'{"error":"","success":"1 code generated successfully","codes":["QTESTA2HLT"]}

I am getting the code as [{  "QTESTA2HLT"  }]

I have been asked to do some work developing a WebAPI in .Net using VS 2017 and I have been asked to use JSON Web Tokens (JWT).  I plan on staying with the uniform interface but testing the header which will contain a JWT.  I realise that this test needs to happen in line with any GET, POST, PUT, OR DELETE request but prior to it happening.  I am staying close to MVC style of the convention but I don't know how to capture and test the JWT and authorise it.  I do know how to encrypt/construct and decrypt a token.  What I am specifically ignorant is the capture in process and testing to accept or reject any request.

We have a JSON file that we are trying to read and put the Key and the values in a CSV file. We are getting an error as below. can someone please help?

Attached is the sample JSON file and the Python code we are using.

Our program accepts 2 arguments one is  input_file which is json and the other one is output_file which is csv. When we execute the code as below with both arguments the code is failing with the following error. We are using Python version 2.7.5

./ --input_file /home/dqadmin/json/work_items.json  --output_file /home/dqadmin/json/work_items.csv
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 66, in <module>
  File "./", line 54, in main
    value = item.get(key, '')
AttributeError: 'unicode' object has no attribute 'get'

Thank you
Hello Experts,

I'm totally new to programming using MVC in .net 4.5 and using (DB first) approach beside scaffolding way to create controllers and views from existing models.

I have 2 models:
1 - Agency Model: [AgencyID],[AgencyName],[AgencyCategoryID]
2 - AgencyCategory Model: [AgencyCategoryID],[AgencyCategoryName]
They are related based on "AgencyID" key.

I want to populate a dropdown list in "Agency view" using "AgencyCategoryID and  AgencyCategoryName" from
"AgencyCategory Model".

Please tell me how to do it step by step with an example.

Thanks a lot in advance.
PS: This issue is only happening when i see result in swagger ui , i visual studio it looks fine.

I am trying to replace the string which i have



 string str = "\\/Date(1430370000000+0530)\\/";
 str = str.Replace(@"\","\\");

Output i am getting above is this :

But while we pass the value in JSON property.

The value automatically converts to below value

But I am expecting the same value which I got earlier

We had a migration on our sharepoint farm from SP2010 to SP2016 and several things in our custom list forms really appear off and was looking to see if someone else had experienced this and might have a solution for correction. We do have the opportunity to re-migrate so we can make changes on the SP2010 side to prepare for final migration which will happen at the end of next week.

Issue 1 any person or group field on our new or edit forms show up weird, the two icons for check names and browse people directors are now outlines in obnoxious blue lines

Issue 2 the check names function appears to work but the browse triggers an error to the screen JSON is unidentified and rather than getting the old pop-up window it builds an addition to the bottom of the screen for a people selection which is very ugly. And it does not appear that new addition to the bottom of the screen works it just spins.

Issue 3 One of our very standard forms shows up as completely unusable screen shot attached enter image description here

Issue 4 When we include a people or group field on a display form we get a weird icon in front of the actual value see attached enter image description here

Issue 5 We also get a lot of these very strange pics pop up wherever we try to put the textname of a user or group on a page see attached enter image description here

THese are all show stoppers for us to migrate so we are scrambling to try and find answers to fix on the receiving end or on the …
I have a custom list application which has a bunch of People/Group fields that worked great in SP2010 on the form the field space showed with two icons (lookup and check).

Code looks like this
<SharePoint:FormField runat="server" id="ff42{$Pos}" controlmode="Edit" fieldname="CSE" __designer:bind="{ddwrt:DataBind('u',concat('ff42',$Pos),'Value','ValueChanged','ID',ddwrt:EscapeDelims(string(@ID)),'@CSE')}" />

After converting to SP2016 the icons are outlined in blue amd when you click them you get a JSON error "JSON is Undefined.
Hi members,

Hoping to get some counseil I'm writing here my issue:

I have a php script that uses url_get_contents to execute a script and retrieve a json from another domain. Both ends are under my control.

The calling to the function is:

$this->url_to_call = '';
$jsonData = array(
            'table' => 'countries',
            'key' => '44',
$jsonDataEncoded = json_encode($jsonData);
$post = file_get_contents( $this->url_to_call, null, stream_context_create(array(
                    'http' => array(
                        'protocol_version' => 1.1,
                        'user_agent'       => 'Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_8_4) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/27.0.1453.116 Safari/537.36',
                        'method'           => 'POST',
                        'header'           => "Content-type: application/json\r\n".
                            "Connection: close\r\n" .
                            "Content-length: " . strlen($jsonDataEncoded) . "\r\n",
                        'content'          => $jsonDataEncoded,
$data = json_decode($post, true);

Open in new window

If I run this code, in the first attemp I get:

Warning: file_get_contents( failed to open stream: An error occurred during the connection attempt because the connected part did not respond properly after a period of time, or there was an error in the established connection because the connected host could not respond. in C:\xampp\htdocs\origin_com\a_controller.php on line 220

But if I refresh the page or add if( !$data ) $data = $post = file_get_contents( $this->url_to_cal......; it reponses with the right json.

If I leave the script 2 minutes and re-run it again I get the error.

I have no clues why this is happening.

Any advice will be appreciated.

Hi Guys,

We wrote an application that downloads json files down to about 80/90 client machines, we have reworked the mechanism but cant get it work correctly

I want to know how we could enable our server to send http status code responses then I can use the reponse.statusCode to see if a new file is available and make this whole thing a lot easier and more robust.
I have a web part page displaying 5 web parts. Four of the web parts (Efforts, Phases, Capture Points & Areas) are "provider" web parts, and come from lists that are the sources of 4 lookup columns in the 5th "consumer" web part (Lessons Learned).

The provider web parts are displaying the Title column from the lists.

The Using Javascript/jQuery, I "connected" the 4 provider web parts to the consumer web part, such that when you click on a Title column value, the consumer web part is filtered to show only those records that have the clicked value in the relevant metadata column.

All that is working very nicely.

Now, my requirement is to go one step further, and display the number of items that will be displayed if you click on a Title column value in any of the 4 web parts. If there are none, a "0" should be displayed.

I've constructed a lists service query that successfully returns the number of items that exist for a given, hard-coded, metadata value:
[SiteURL]/_vti_bin/listdata.svc/[ListName]/$count?&$filter=Effort/Title eq 'AAA'

So, the goal is to display such an item count beside the corresponding provider web part value, such as:
Efforts web part:
AAA (10) //assuming there are 10 items in the consumer web part tagged with Effort 'AAA'

Now, I'm bumping up against the current limit of my abilities.

I know that I need code (javascript, rest, ajax, json) for each provider web part with looping to cycle through all of the TD cells that have …

Hi guys,

I seem to be having an issue with my site, where will be hammered after a while, however if i turn on my cloudfare to "I'm under attack" it will work fine but will display a message which in turn deters visitors, i think it is to do with my player here but maybe the fact that the iradio app is also pointing to to get the audio streams, it is not able to handle the traffic or maybe its just down to poor config?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hello nodejs experts

Is there is anything more on node js standards?  

All urls must be in lower case

Ex: /notification/sendotp

Use HTTP verbs (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE) to operate on the collections and elements.

Use GET – for retrieving single or list data

Use POST – for create data

Use PUT – for update data

Use DELETE – for delete data











URLs should include nouns, not verbs in API names. Avoid get,update,save, delete, list in API names.

Maintain singular and plural nouns for APIs.

Ex: for single image retrive – GET - /user/image

For list of images – GET – user/images

User Token must be in headers only. Not as path param or in json body

Use resource, sub-resources for relations

Ex: for user videos use - /user/videos

Put the version number at the base of your URL. /v1/user/images

Controller will have only mandatory parameter validations and sending success, error responses no business logic. Use Service and Helper files for business logic. DAO for db calls

Handle Errors with HTTP status codes

200 – OK – Everything is fine. Created, Saved, Data found

400 – Validations Failed, Missing Mandatory Params, No data found, User already exists, already voted, in valid comment, comment not allowed within a hour, invalid user, invalid video, Video not found

500 – Unknown error, Database error, ES down, timeout from third-party. …

 The commented   ' Public Property Wlisting() As WooData does not work,
I have tried different methods of calling an array or a list but always get the same error.  The Json that come over appears correctly formed, it is the inability to get it into a class which is the problem.

The line :

  Dim WooResponse = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject(Of WooCommerceData.Results)(result)

gives the following error:
Newtonsoft.Json.JsonSerializationException: 'Cannot deserialize the current JSON array (e.g. [1,2,3]) into type 'Zetsy.WooCommerceData.Results' because the type requires a JSON object (e.g. {"name":"value"}) to deserialize correctly.

To fix this error either change the JSON to a JSON object (e.g. {"name":"value"}) or change the deserialized type to an array or a type that implements a collection interface (e.g. ICollection, IList) like List<T> that can be deserialized from a JSON array. JsonArrayAttribute can also be added to the type to force it to deserialize from a JSON array.
