net - newtonsoft json serialize c#



JSON.net Serialize C# object to JSON Issue (1)

Your json string is being HTML encoded. Since you're rendering the json in your view, you can use the @Html.Raw() helper to prevent it from being encoded.

var data = { json : "@Html.Raw(JsonConvert.SerializeObject(Model))" };

I am trying to serialize a C# object to JSON using JSON.net library. The issue I am having is the string being created has &quot's in it.

Below is the string returned via JsonConvert.SerializeObject:

{
    "ComId": "AAAiB+AAHAALOaFAAL",
    "CovId": "AAABC9AAPAAAZYUAAI",
    "EffectiveDate": "\\/Date(1329368400000-0500)\\/",
    "ExpirationDate": "\\/Date(1360990800000-0500)\\/",
    "State": "TX",
    "DeductibleAmount": 500.0,
    "DeductibleType": "PD"
}

Running the string through JSONLint returns:

Parse error on line 1:
{    "ComId": &
-----^
Expecting 'STRING', '}'

Below is the object I am trying to serialize into JSON:

public class CommonInfoModel
{
    public virtual string ComId { get; set; }
    public virtual string CovId { get; set; }

    [Display(Name = "Effective Date")]
    public virtual DateTime EffectiveDate { get; set; }

    [Display(Name = "Expiration Date")]
    public virtual DateTime ExpirationDate { get; set; }

    [Display(Name = "State")]
    public virtual string State { get; set; }

    [Display(Name = "Deductible Amount")]
    public virtual decimal DeductibleAmount { get; set; }

    [Display(Name = "Deductible Type")]
    public virtual string DeductibleType { get; set; }
}

Am I doing something wrong? I have searched and it seems others who use the method get cleaner strings! Thank you for your time in advance!
