JavaScriptSerializer.ConvertToType Method (Object, Type)

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

Converts the specified object to the specified type.

Namespace:  System.Web.Script.Serialization
Assembly:  System.Web.Extensions (in System.Web.Extensions.dll)

public Object ConvertToType(
	Object obj,
	Type targetType
)

Parameters

obj
Type: System.Object

The object to convert.

targetType
Type: System.Type

The type to convert the object to.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
The serialized JSON string.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

The resulting JSON-formatted string exceeds the value of MaxJsonLength.

-or-

obj contains a circular reference. A circular reference occurs when a child object has a reference to a parent object, and the parent object has a reference to the child object.

ArgumentException

The recursion limit defined by RecursionLimit was exceeded.

When the JavaScriptSerializer instance is serializing a type for which a custom converter is registered, the serializer calls the Serialize method to obtain the dictionary of name/value pairs that will be converted to a JSON-formatted string.

The Serialize method can also throw exceptions if the object graph is too complex, or if registered instances of JavaScriptConverter have caused converter recursion.
