JSON Question

Writing Json using Newtonsoft.json.JsonTextWriter

I am writing a json using Newtonsoft.json.JsonTextWriter.
Here is my code:

StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
StringWriter sw = new StringWriter(sb);
JsonWriter jsonWriter = new JsonTextWriter(sw);

jsonWriter.Formatting = Formatting.Indented;

jsonWriter.WritePropertyName("Name");
jsonWriter.WriteValue("Allan");


And i am assuming that
sw
has the json format {"Name": "Allan"}. How can i get the written text in some string variable so that i can use this json data in my http request?

Answer

My answer is now not relevant, since the code sample in the question has been edited to include these lines, left here for posterity, see comments for more info.


You will need to add the following to close the JSON elements properly:

jsonWriter.WriteEndObject();

Then call the StringBuilder's ToString() method:

string strMyString = sw.ToString();
