Im trying to pull all the data for each character and display it on the form in different ways but for now i would be happy to show the information in a message box just to make sure it is working.

This is my current code, there was a suggestion to create classes for the json and thats what i have done so far, but im still unsure of how to pull the information i need, and im not sure which way i should put lists, as you can see from my code, i have them in 2 different ways to test each way and see what works but im open to suggestions as im not getting anywhere by myself.

where did you get the json file from, do you know the exact structure from which this json is generated. Note: to succeed, the structure for serializing and deserializing should have an exact match.
Richard chiu 8-Jul-15 0:02am
   
you can use http://jsonviewer.stack.hu/ to generate a view of the structure, I would also suggest that you play around with json.net using limited data before you try to actually process this json file.

Please see my past answers:
How To Convert object type to C# class object type[^],
how to conver multi level json data to C# Object?[^],
haw to get data from Cloudant (json document)[^].

Ideally, the best situation is the one where you can use Data Contract, but it the JSON schema is already given and cannot be changed (because some JSON file have been created before and should be used), it may not be practical (but probably always possible); then you can use other approaches I mentioned.

Sorry this is vb.net and not C# thanks for the resources though. You can see that i already converted the json to classes.
   
It does not matter if it is C# or VB.NET. This is all about .NET FCL and not particular .NET languages. What's the problem? You can always auto-translate between C# and VB.NET.

here is a solution using JavaScriptSerializer instead of Json.net. Both JavaScriptSerializer and json.net can be used interchangebly. here is the code

VB
Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
    Dim jss As New System.Web.Script.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer
    Dim jc As Class1.jChars 'Class1.jchars is the root class you have provided
    Dim JSON_String As String = "the json file string"
    'I use JavaScriptSerializer instead of json.net, both has it's pro and cons
    jc = jss.Deserialize(Of Class1.jChars)(JSON_String)
    'now that you have got the json string deserialized to jc, you can use its value as you like
End Sub


if the classes you have created matches that of the json file then the above code should work. I have been using a lots of Json recently.
Hope it helps.
