Converting JSON String to Dictionary<String, Any> serializes Boolean as Int

By : Mariyah
Date : October 17 2020, 06:10 AM
To fix this issue This is just a debugger description of the result.
For Bool it uses NSNumber with values 1 as true and 0 as false.
code :
guard let json = self.inputArgumentsString?.toJson,
        let boolean = json["BoolArgument"] as? Bool
        else { return }

for key, value in json {
  if let number = value as? NSNumber {
    let numberType = CFNumberGetType(number as CFNumberRef)

    switch numberType {
      case .charType:
        print(key, value as? Bool)
      case .sInt8Type, .sInt16Type, .sInt32Type, .sInt64Type, .shortType, .intType, .longType, .longLongType, .cfIndexType, .nsIntegerType:
        print(key, value as? Int)
      case .float32Type, .float64Type, .floatType, .doubleType, .cgFloatType:
        print(key, value as? Double)

converting dictionary string string to json string

may help you . How can i convert my dictionary , Try this using extension methods.
code :
public static class Extensions
    public static string FromDictionaryToJson(this Dictionary<string, string> dictionary)
        var kvs = dictionary.Select(kvp => string.Format("\"{0}\":\"{1}\"", kvp.Key, string.Concat(",", kvp.Value)));
        return string.Concat("{", string.Join(",", kvs), "}");

    public static Dictionary<string, string> FromJsonToDictionary(this string json)
        string[] keyValueArray = json.Replace("{", string.Empty).Replace("}", string.Empty).Replace("\"", string.Empty).Split(',');
        return keyValueArray.ToDictionary(item => item.Split(':')[0], item => item.Split(':')[1]);
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Dictionary<string, string> dictss = new Dictionary<string, string>();

            dictss.Add("onekey", "oneval");
            dictss.Add("twokey", "twoval");
            dictss.Add("threekey", "threeval");
            dictss.Add("fourkey", "fourval");
            dictss.Add("fivekey", "fiveval");

            string jsonString = dictss.FromDictionaryToJson(); //call extension method


            Dictionary<string, string> dictss2 = jsonString.FromJsonToDictionary(); //call extension method

            foreach(KeyValuePair<string,string> kv in dictss2)
                Console.WriteLine(string.Format("key={0},value={1}", kv.Key, kv.Value));
        public string FromDictionaryToJson(Dictionary<string, string> dictionary)
            var kvs = dictionary.Select(kvp => string.Format("\"{0}\":\"{1}\"", kvp.Key, string.Join(",", kvp.Value)));
            return string.Concat("{", string.Join(",", kvs), "}");

        public Dictionary<string, string> FromJsonToDictionary(string json)
            string[] keyValueArray = json.Replace("{", string.Empty).Replace("}", string.Empty).Replace("\"", string.Empty).Split(',');
            return keyValueArray.ToDictionary(item => item.Split(':')[0], item => item.Split(':')[1]);

Json.NET serializes enum as string even with default settings

By : ChrisTSG
Date : March 29 2020, 07:55 AM
To fix this issue This is happening because JsonConvert.SerializeObject applies the incoming settings on top of the default settings, by internally calling JsonSerializer.CreateDefault(JsonSerializerSettings settings). I don't know if/where this behavior is documented, but it's visible in the source code. Thus the default list of converters will be used in addition to the empty list of locally specified converters, meaning the default StringEnumConverter will get used.
You have a couple options to work around this:
code :
public static class JsonExtensions
    public static string SerializeObjectNoDefaultSettings(object value, Formatting formatting, JsonSerializerSettings settings)
        var jsonSerializer = JsonSerializer.Create(settings);
        jsonSerializer.Formatting = formatting;

        StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder(256);
        StringWriter sw = new StringWriter(sb, CultureInfo.InvariantCulture);
        using (JsonTextWriter jsonWriter = new JsonTextWriter(sw))
            jsonWriter.Formatting = jsonSerializer.Formatting;
            jsonSerializer.Serialize(jsonWriter, value);

        return sw.ToString(); 
var json = JsonExtensions.SerializeObjectNoDefaultSettings(value, Formatting.None, new JsonSerializerSettings());
public class IntegerEnumConverter : StringEnumConverter
    public override bool CanRead { get { return false; } }

    public override bool CanWrite { get { return false; } }
var json = JsonConvert.SerializeObject(value, Formatting.None, new JsonSerializerSettings { Converters = new JsonConverter[] { new IntegerEnumConverter() } });

Converting boolean to int in json string

By : Carl Stanley Hopkins

help you fix your problem If you are willing to switch to , you can use the solution from Convert an int to bool with Json.Net.
If you wish to continue using JavaScriptSerializer, you will need to create a JavaScriptConverter for your MyObject type as follows:
code :
class MyObjectConverter : JavaScriptConverter
    public override IEnumerable<Type> SupportedTypes
        get { return new[] { typeof(MyObject) }; }

    // Custom conversion code below

    const string myPropName = "MyProp";

    public override object Deserialize(IDictionary<string, object> dictionary, Type type, JavaScriptSerializer serializer)
        object value;
        if (dictionary.TryGetValue(myPropName, out value))
            dictionary[myPropName] = !value.IsNullOrDefault();

        var myObj = new JavaScriptSerializer().ConvertToType<MyObject>(dictionary);
        return myObj;

    public override IDictionary<string, object> Serialize(object obj, JavaScriptSerializer serializer)
        var myObj = (MyObject)obj;

        // Generate a default serialization.  Is there an easier way to do this?
        var defaultSerializer = new JavaScriptSerializer();
        var dict = defaultSerializer.Deserialize<Dictionary<string, object>>(defaultSerializer.Serialize(obj));

        dict[myPropName] = myObj.MyProp ? 1 : 0;

        return dict;

public static class ObjectExtensions
    public static bool IsNullOrDefault(this object value)
        // Adapted from https://stackoverflow.com/questions/6553183/check-to-see-if-a-given-object-reference-or-value-type-is-equal-to-its-default
        if (value == null)
            return true;
        Type type = value.GetType();
        if (!type.IsValueType)
            return false; // can't be, as would be null
        if (Nullable.GetUnderlyingType(type) != null)
            return false; // ditto, Nullable<T>
        object defaultValue = Activator.CreateInstance(type); // must exist for structs
        return value.Equals(defaultValue);
        var serializer = new JavaScriptSerializer();
        serializer.RegisterConverters(new JavaScriptConverter[] { new MyObjectConverter() } );

        var json = serializer.Serialize(myObject);
public class MyObject
    public bool MyProp { get; set; }

    public string SomeOtherProperty { get; set; }

JSONField serializes as json for POST, but string for GET

By : Vtollar
Date : March 29 2020, 07:55 AM
will be helpful for those in need You can override the to_internal_value and to_representation in a new serializer field to handle the return data for JSON field.
code :
class JSONSerializerField(serializers.Field):
    """Serializer for JSONField -- required to make field writable"""

    def to_internal_value(self, data):
        return data

    def to_representation(self, value):
        return value
class SomeSerializer(serializers.ModelSerializer):
    json_field = JSONSerializerField()

    class Meta:
        model = SomeModelClass
        fields = ('json_field', )

servicestack serializes to empty json string

By : harishkumar manda
Date : March 29 2020, 07:55 AM
seems to work fine I am having a strange issue with ServiceStack (SS). The entity I pass to the method is always serialized to empty json string by SS. So s is always "{}". I debug and see that the entity is a hydrated instance with properties with values. , ServiceStack serializes only serializes public properties.
