How to pass json string to webmethod c# ASP.NET

Im trying to stringify a javascript object and then pass the string as a parameter to a WebMethod in Code Behind. I can't get it to work as I get a Internal Server Error of 500 and the stacktrace says that value is missing for parameter.

Here is the javascript code:

var jSon = JSON.stringify(javascriptObject);
// "{"Foretagsnamn":"Avector","BGFarg":"000000","TextColor":"fafafa","FooterFarg":"ffffff","FooterColor":"000000","FooterLinkColor":"050505","FeaturedBorderColor":"","HoverFarg":"12ebeb","RutFarg":"0d0d0d","SelectedRutFarg":"","RutColor":"FFFFFF","LankColor":"","DelaMedSig":"1","PersonalSida":"0","StartpageTitle":"","StartpageDescription":"","GoogleMaps":"<iframe width=\"425\" height=\"350\" frameborder=\"0\" scrolling=\"no\" marginheight=\"0\" marginwidth=\"0\" src=\"https://maps.google.se/maps?f=q&amp;source=embed&amp;hl=sv&amp;geocode=&amp;q=Avector AB&amp;aq=&amp;sll=56.225986,12.870827&amp;sspn=0.076248,0.154324&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;hq=Avector AB&amp;hnear=&amp;t=m&amp;cid=645910733081021950&amp;iwloc=A&amp;ll=56.224594,12.859229&amp;spn=0,0&amp;output=embed\"></iframe><br /><small><a href=\"https://maps.google.se/maps?f=q&amp;source=embed&amp;hl=sv&amp;geocode=&amp;q=Avector AB&amp;aq=&amp;sll=56.225986,12.870827&amp;sspn=0.076248,0.154324&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;hq=Avector AB&amp;hnear=&amp;t=m&amp;cid=645910733081021950&amp;iwloc=A&amp;ll=56.224594,12.859229&amp;spn=0,0\" style=\"text-align:left\">Visa större karta</a></small>","HittaKartaUrl":"http://www.hitta.se/avector ab/ängelholm/hxTP-4v1HG?vad=Avector AB","EniroKartaUrl":"http://kartor.eniro.se/m/aKkhi","Ikoner":"2","Email":"info@avector.com","AdressSida":"1","shadowColor":"ffffff","lineColor":"2b292b","MenuHoverIcon":"Välj bild från server","fontFamily":"Verdana","supportText":"Support Avector","captcha":true,"metaKeywords":"","ShowSupportInFooter":true}"

$.ajax({
type: "POST",
url: "Post/Installningar.aspx/Updatera",
data: jSon,
contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
dataType: "json",
success: function (result) {

var resultAsString = result.d;
//_this.parent().siblings('.SavedStatus').html(resultAsString);

if (resultAsString == "1") { // Gick bra att spara.
alert("Uppgifterna är sparade.");
document.location = document.location;
}
else {
$('#StatusText').html("Gick inte att spara uppgifterna.");
}


},
error: function (xhr, ajaxOptions, thrownError) {

}
});


And here Is the webmethod:

[WebMethod]
public static string Updatera(string jSon)
{


It feels like I've tried everything that I've found when searching by google and here on SO.

I've also tried this guide that many refer to: http://encosia.com/using-jquery-to-directly-call-aspnet-ajax-page-methods/

Any ideas?

Answer

First you need to use

var jSon = JSON.stringify({obj:javascriptObject});

instead of

var jSon = JSON.stringify(javascriptObject);

Then you webmethod would be like

[WebMethod]
public static string Updatera(aData obj)
{
  // logic code 
}

Now here aData is your class something like below

public class aData { 
        public string Foretagsnamn  {get;set;}
         public string BGFarg  {get;set;}
         public string TextColor  {get;set;}
         public string FooterFarg  {get;set;}
         public string Email  {get;set;}
       }

So your final code look like

jQuery :

 var jSon = JSON.stringify({obj:javascriptObject});
            $.ajax({
                type: "POST",
                url: "Post/Installningar.aspx/Updatera",
                data: jsonData,
                contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
                dataType: "json",
                success: OnSuccess,
                error: OnErrorCall
            });

            function OnSuccess(response){

            }

            function OnErrorCall(){

            }

Code Behind :

 public class aData { 
    public string Foretagsnamn  {get;set;}
    public string BGFarg  {get;set;}
    public string TextColor  {get;set;}
    public string FooterFarg  {get;set;}
    public string Email  {get;set;}
}


[WebMethod]
public static string Updatera(aData obj)
{
   // logic code 
}
