C# - How To Return Json From Action Method With Array Property

Mar 14, 2011

I am trying to return some data as json from an action method.

I have an employee object that looks like this:

public class Employee
public int EmployeeID {get; set;}
public string FirstName {get; set;}
public string LastName {get; set;}
//Other irrelevant properties

Then I have a view model as follows

public Class EmployeeViewModel
public Employee Supervisor{get; set;}
public List<EmployeeViewModel> Employees

I need to return a json object that looks exactly like this:

{id: 1, name: John, children: [
{id: 1, name: Joe, children: []},
{id: 1, name: Rob, children: []}

For now I only need to go to the second level as above, returning and supervisor and their staff members beneath them.

How would I go about returning this in my action method(I have the viewModel object hydrated already I just need to return it as json). My problem so far has been that the children property does not get populated.

MVC :: JQuery JSON Array Parameter?

Apr 21, 2010

.I am using VS2010 Ultimate in an out of the box HelloWorld MVC2 ProjectI am using JQuery 1.4.1I have the following code in my View:

function TestStringArray() {
var stringArray = new Array();
stringArray[0] = "item1";


Forgetting my controller actually needs to return a Json result (I have a break on the return View() line), the values parameter is null. When I pass in a single string (change the type from List<String> to String in the controller, pass in a single string value from the View), it works fine. Looking at Fiddler, the array is passing the multiple values.I did some research and people are suggesting JSON.Stringify ion the JSON2 library, the JSON.NEt library, etc... Do I really need extra libraries? Microsoft didn't think of this scenario for out of the box? I assume the problem is any kind of complex type.

Javascript - $.ajax Json Method Does Not Hit The Web Method?

Sep 22, 2010

When this function is hit , it does not call my function in code behind? Why could it be doing this? How can I fix this error.

$(document).ready(function() {
$('[id$=btn_Update]').click(function() {
var reten = $('[id$=txt_Reten]').val();
var i=0;
var selectValues = "";
var ProdID = new Array();
$("#lst_ProdId option").each(function() {
selectValues = selectValues + $(this).text() + ",";
ProdID[i] = $(this).text();
for(var j=0; j < ProdID.length;j++)
// alert(ProdID[j]);
var params = "{'ProdID':'" + ProdID + "','RetenP':'" + reten + "'}";
type: "POST",
url: "/ProductPricing/Products/RetenPeriod.aspx/UpdateRetenPeriod",
data: params,
contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
datatype: "json",
success: function(result) {
error:function(e) {
// if(errorThrown != null)
// alert(textStatus+ ":"+errorThrown);
// else
// alert("fail");
return false;
return false;

This is my webmethod in code behind:

public static bool UpdateRetenPeriod(string[] ProdID,string RetenP)

I'm looking for a way to define and send a JSON object array. I've figured out how to define a single JSON object, turn it into a string and send it, but what about an array of this type? Probably something simple I'm overlooking...

"ColumnIndex": index
convert it to a string

But the second object is null? I checked the javascript and the variable "cnt" is 1 not 2. Why would that be?

MVC :: Unable To Redirect To Action When Posting With Json?

Nov 8, 2010

I originally have the question posted here, but I need as many eyes as possible on it.Essentially, I'm having issues redirecting to an action in mvc2 when working with JSON data. I post a stringified JSON object to an action and the action in turn redirects as needed. It worked previously when using form fields, but not when I'm posting JSON. To get posted JSON objects to properly bind to parameters objects in MVC, I'm taking advantage of the JsonValueProviderFactory class from MVC2Futures/MVC3Beta.Why is this occuring? The jQuery ajax call is telling the server "I'm giving you json, I expect html in return" and all actions pointed to via RedirectToAction calls are structured in a similar manner. I instead get stuck in a loop, continually hitting the originally requested action, with a prompt to reenter authorization information to boot! It seems lose authentication/authorization information in the process.The linked question on

MVC :: Passing Json Collection Object From View To Action

Nov 1, 2010

I am trying to send json data from view to controller action. But the issue is the data is not populating in the action parameter List<Score>.

View Model:
public class Score
public int QuestionId { get; set; }
public int PrevAnswerId { get; set; }
public int CurrAnswerId { get; set; }
public string CurrAnswerName { get; set; }

Json Data look like:
{QuestionId:1, PrevAnswerId:3, CurrAnswerId:3, CurrAnswerName:'Known to Broker'},
{QuestionId:2, PrevAnswerId:7, CurrAnswerId:7, CurrAnswerName:'Completed'},
{QuestionId:3, PrevAnswerId:10, CurrAnswerId:10, CurrAnswerName:'Report'}

On window load, I will construct the Json object using "eval()" function and do some operation in the data before its save. On Save Click, I will call the action through the ajax call.

url: url,
type: "GET",
dataType: 'json',
data: {score: ScoreJson},
contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
success: function () {
error: function () {
} });

public ActionResult SaveScore(List<Score> score)
// do something...

But here score comming as collection of 3 elements with zero(for interger property)/null(for string property) values. When I checked in the request I found the data in "parama" property like.

"Score%5b0%5d%5bQuestionId%5d=1 &Score%5b0%5d%5bPrevAnswerId%5d=3 &Score%5b0%5d%5bCurrAnswerId%5d=3 &Score%5b0%5d%5bCurrAnswerName%5d=Known+to+broker&
Score%5b1%5d%5bQuestionId%5d=2 &Score%5b1%5d%5bPrevAnswerId%5d=7 &Score%5b1%5d%5bCurrAnswerId%5d=7 &Score%5b1%5d%5bCurrAnswerName%5d=Completed&
Score%5b2%5d%5bQuestionId%5d=3 &Score%5b2%5d%5bPrevAnswerId%5d=10 &Score%5b2%5d%5bCurrAnswerId%5d=10 &Score%5b2%5d%5bCurrAnswerName%5d=Travelers+Report&".

But I am not sure why it is not getting populated in the score list. One full day I spent for this issue but till now I didnt find the solution for this issue.

MVC Return Json Result?

Feb 4, 2011

I have a controller that uploads a file. I would like to return a json result with bool success (if successfully uploaded otherwise false) and message (this could be error message that occured OR link to a file OR link to an image, depending on what was uploaded).What's the best way to approach thisI have this

public class UploadedFile
public bool Success { get; set; }
public string Message { get; set; }

then In my controller I would set Success to true/or/false and Message to <a href OR <img am i on the right track?How would i then parse this in the view so that when image it will show an image, if link show a link, if error simply alert error.
