How to store JSON array to dynamic List<>?

I'm just curious if there's a way to store JSON Array to dynamic List<> ?

For example :

Here's my JSON Array :


[ { "trx_id": 1, "bank_id": 50 } ]


I want to assign those JSON Array to a new List<>. Here's my code :

var dynObjectsList = new List<dynamic>(); // I want to assign both properties name and properties value to this variable


Here's the reason why i want it this way :

Basically, I'm building a client API to consume a web service. Let's say I successfully consumed web service A and web service B. I need to store the value returned from web service A and web service B in a separated List<>, so I can use Linq for JOIN-ing the List<>. I can store it easily if I got the model for each web service, but unfortunately I don't have it, so I need to build the List<> manually

I've been gooling it for awhile, but no luck for me.

Is there any way to do this?

Thank you

Using newtonsoft.json nuget package you could do the following:

var list = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<List<dynamic>>("[{ \"trx_id\": 1, \"bank_id\": 50 }]");
