JSON Question

Convert JSON String to JSON Object c#

I have this String stored in my database:

str = "{ "context_name": { "lower_bound": "value", "upper_bound": "value", "values": [ "value1", "valueN" ] } }"


This string is already in the JSON format but I want to convert it into a JObject or JSON Object.

JObject json = new JObject();


I tried the
json = (JObject)str;
cast but it didn't work so how can I do it?

Answer

JObject defines method Parse for this:

JObject json = JObject.Parse(str);

You might want to refer to Json.NET documentation.
