How to create Models in ASP.Net for multi level Json format?

Problem Specification: Build a web api in asp.net to post multi level json formatted data.

Json Format:

{
"InfoList:"[
{
"Name": " Sample String 1",
"URL": " Sample String2",
"Info":[
{
"ZIP": " Sample String3 "
"status": "Sample String4"
}
]
}
]
}


I tried to solve this problem. My models are given bellow:

My Models:

public class Information : InfoList
{
public InfoList InfoList { get; set; }
}

public class InfoList
{

public string Name { get; set; }

public string URL { get; set; }

public Info info { get; set; }
}

public class Info
{
public string ZIP{ get; set; }

public string status { get; set; }

}


Those models Generates this kind of Json Format:

{
"InfoList": {
"Name": "sample string 1",
"URL": "sample string 2",
"Info": {
"ZIP": "sample string 1",
"status": "sample string 2"
}
},
"Name": "sample string 1",
"URL": "sample string 2",
"Info": {
"ZIP": "sample string 1",
"status": "sample string 2"
}
}


I need those parentheses exactly like the problem specification.What to do? I am working with ASP.Net Web API controller.

Answer

You just copy your JSON then create C# Class file. Then click Edit -> Paste Special -> Paste JSON as Classes. Thats it...

You need Visual Studio for this.

For more information please see below link

Valid JSON

{
    "InfoList":  {
        "Name": " Sample String 1",
        "URL": " Sample String2",
        "Info": [
            {
                "ZIP": " Sample String3 ",
                "status": "Sample String4"
            }
        ]
    }
}

So your class must be like this.

public class Rootobject
{
    public Infolist InfoList { get; set; }
}

public class Infolist
{
    public string Name { get; set; }
    public string URL { get; set; }
    public Info[] Info { get; set; }
}

public class Info
{
    public string ZIP { get; set; }
    public string status { get; set; }
}
