Getting the name / key of a JToken with JSON.net

Alex

I have some JSON that looks like this

[
  {
    "MobileSiteContent": {
      "Culture": "en_au",
      "Key": [
        "NameOfKey1"
      ]
    }
  },
  {
    "PageContent": {
      "Culture": "en_au",
      "Page": [
        "about-us/"
      ]
    }
  }
]

I parse this as a JArray:

var array = JArray.Parse(json);

Then, I loop over the array:

foreach (var content in array)
{

}

content is a JToken

How can I retrieve the "name" or "key" of each item?

For example, "MobileSiteContent" or "PageContent"

JToken is the base class for JObject, JArray, JProperty, JValue, etc. You can use the Children<T>() method to get a filtered list of a JToken's children that are of a certain type, for example JObject. Each JObject has a collection of JProperty objects, which can be accessed via the Properties() method. For each JProperty, you can get its Name. (Of course you can also get the Value if desired, which is another JToken.)

Putting it all together we have:

JArray array = JArray.Parse(json);

foreach (JObject content in array.Children<JObject>())
{
    foreach (JProperty prop in content.Properties())
    {
        Console.WriteLine(prop.Name);
    }
}

Output:

MobileSiteContent
PageContent
