I read a JSON object from a remote REST server. This JSON object has all the properties of a typescript class (by design). How do I cast that received JSON object to a type var?
I don't want to populate a typescript var (ie have a constructor that takes this JSON object). It's large and copying everything across sub-object by sub-object & property by property would take a lot of time.
Update: You can however cast it to a typescript interface!
While if you only were dealing with data, you could just do a cast to an interface (as it's purely a compile time structure), this would require that you use a TypeScript class which uses the data instance and performs operations with that data.
Some examples of copying the data:
In essence, you'd just :
var d = new MyRichObject(); d.copyInto(jsonResult);
