Parse Xml text to class in c#

I want to parse below xml text to object of class

xml :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><data><Error><![CDATA[No Error]]></Error></data>


class :

public class AAA
{
public BBB data;
}

public class BBB
{
public string Error;
}


Code :

XmlSerializer serializer = new XmlSerializer(typeof(DUserInfo));
using (StringReader reader = new StringReader(xmlText))
{
AAA info = (AAA)(serializer.Deserialize(reader));
}//using


Error :

There is an error in XML document (1, 40).
<data xmlns=''> was not expected.

Answer
{
"?xml": {
    "@version": "1.0",
    "@encoding": "UTF-8"
},
"data": {
    "Error": {
        "#cdata-section": "No Error"
    }
}
}

is JSON not XML, So You have deserialize as JSON (not as XML) to Object.

Use NewtonSoft.Json dll to parse this text format.

Alternatively... :

Or you can convert your JSON to an actual valid xml first and then convert it to object.

Also you can try some online JSON-to-XML converter :
(pass the result to AAA info = (AAA)(serializer.Deserialize(reader));)

Example result from : http://www.utilities-online.info/xmltojson/#.WCVnky2LQrg

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
    <?xml>
        <@version>1.0</@version>
        <@encoding>UTF-8</@encoding>
    </?xml>
    <data>
        <Error>
            <#cdata-section>No Error</#cdata-section>
        </Error>
    </data>

PS: Please check your class structures too.

Correct Json will be.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<data>
    <Error>
        <cdata-section>No Error</cdata-section>
    </Error>
</data>

You classes will be like this.

[XmlRoot(ElementName="Error")]
public class Error {
    [XmlElement(ElementName="cdata-section")]
    public string Cdatasection { get; set; }
}

[XmlRoot(ElementName="data")]
public class Data {
    [XmlElement(ElementName="Error")]
    public Error Error { get; set; }
}

You can desialize your xml to object in this way.

string xmlText = "your xml";
XmlSerializer serializer = new XmlSerializer(typeof(Data));
    using (StringReader reader = new StringReader(xmlText))
    {
        Data info = (Data)(serializer.Deserialize(reader));
    }

You are doing in wrong way in this line.

XmlSerializer serializer = new XmlSerializer(typeof(DUserInfo));
