I have a C# string which was pulled from a TCP/IP stream. I need to convert this string to a JSON Object to transport over HTTP.

The string will look something like:


with their being any number of parameters following the second colon.

Do I have to parse this string out into an object to serialize it or is there another way?

I am working with Visual Studio 2010 and have the JSON.NET framework.

Is what's after the colons valid JSON (with a small bit of manipulation i.e. putting a { ... } around it)? If so, use Otherwise you're pretty much going to have to parse it, if it's a custom format, and reformat as JSON.

One simple approach would be to parse the string, create an anonymous object from that (using LINQ is one way), and then create a JSON object via serialization.
