i have variable Json and want to deserialize with Newtonsoft.Json.
This type of Json will not be able to be transformed to a c# class. What to do?
Thanks in advance.

The "variableKeyxxx123" - keys can occur several times with random names.
In some times, there are "morevalues".

		"computers": {
				"id": 3333,
				"name": "name1",
				"xvalues": "xxValues"
				"id": 4444,
				"name": "name2",
				"xvalues": "xxValues"
				"id": 55555,
				"name": "name3",
				"xvalues": "xxValues",				
				"morevalues": {
					"valuexy": "hello"

What I have tried:

Tried jsonToC# and Newtonsoft.Json but creating class from the Response above will cause Errors because the Computers are named as in Response.

public class Computers
    public VariableKeyxxx123 variableKeyxxx123 { get; set; }
    public VariableKeyxxx862 variableKeyxxx862 { get; set; }
    public VariableKeyxxx442 variableKeyxxx442 { get; set; }

Rather than deserialising to a concrete class you create yourself you can get Newtonsoft to serialise to a structure of JObject classes that will be able to handle the randomness of structure, but you will need to do some work to traverse the structure the extract the data you want. Google tutorials on newtonsoft and you should find one that involves deserialising to the newtonsoft objects.

Ok, Thanks. Thought, it would be possible more beautiful.

Newtonsoft supports the ExpandoObject, specifically to support JSON that can't be defined by a "schema" and therefore a strongly typed class.
