Convert dictionary to Json

Before I reinvent the wheel: does anyone have some code to convert a dictionary to Json?

There is an example in the docs:
JSONItem

The JSONItem class will auto convert this for you:

Dim js As JSONItem = myDictionary

Keep in mind that JSON keys are case sensitive, and the case of the keys you have in the dictionary will be what you get in the JSONItem.

That’s really clever. Thanks, Glen and Eli.

Senior moment: Greg and not Glen.

In all my years, I’ve never been called Glen before. Usually, people just call me Stretch.

Because u r probably the tallest in XOJO inc

Shorty :stuck_out_tongue:

Which goes right along with calling the bald guy “Curly”, the heavy set fellow “Slim” or the really skinny guy “Tank”

I think that makes me more “Curly” than anything :slight_smile:

Gregs among the very tallest people I’ve ever met.
Did used to work with a cop who was 7 foot something but he seemed nearly as wide as he was tall. How towered over me as I’m only 5’ 7" ish on a good day.
This fellow could bench press a LOT - always won the annual “strong man” competitions held internally.
No neck - shoulders right up to his head and fitting shirts for him was a pain - tailors hated him as they had to take 22 inch neck shirts & increase them, open the backs to make them bigger. No off the rack stuff fit him he was such a big guy.
Most everything needed custom alterations - and try & find a belt to fit him. HA ! Custom made as well by a local boot & hat maker :stuck_out_tongue:

His nick name was “Teddy Bear” and you can guess why.
Nice guy

wonder where do one use JSON??

makes for a nice file format for saving certain kinds of data

some web services use json-rpc

JSON is also more compact than XML, so in some instances JSON is a better choice than XML IMO.

depending on what the goals are sure
