Question is unclear. You can serialize an Object of some Type into JSON/XML formated string.

What exactly you are trying to achieve?

Wait. I guess you want to show text of your "text.txt" file in some TextBox. Is my guess correct?

no..
i want entire folder structure path as string in textbox..

You don't really need to do anything manually. Instead, use Data Contract with System.Runtime.Serialization.Json.DataContractJsonSerializer.

See:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms733127.aspx[^],
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb412179.aspx[^]
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.runtime.serialization.json.datacontractjsonserializer.aspx[^].

Please also see my past solution where I advocate this robust and easy-to-use approach:
How can I utilize XML File streamwriter and reader in my form application?[^],
Creating a property files...[^].

I explain things using System.Runtime.Serialization.Json.DataContractSerializer (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.runtime.serialization.datacontractserializer.aspx[^]), but this is applicable to System.Runtime.Serialization.Json.DataContractJsonSerializer as well.

Check out fastJSON[^] for the JSON part.
And look at DirectoryInfo Class[^] and FileInfo Class[^] for folder and file info.
