	<p>The quickest method of converting between JSON text and a .NET object is using 
        the <a href="./html/T_Newtonsoft_Json_JsonSerializer.htm">JsonSerializer</a>. The JsonSerializer converts .NET objects into their JSON 
        equivalent and back again.</p>


	<p>For simple scenarios where you want to convert to and from a JSON string the <a href="./html/Overload_Newtonsoft_Json_JsonConvert_SerializeObject.htm">SerializeObject</a> and <a href="./html/Overload_Newtonsoft_Json_JsonConvert_DeserializeObject.htm">DeserializeObject</a> methods on <a href="./html/T_Newtonsoft_Json_JsonConvert.htm">JsonConvert</a> provide an easy to use wrapper over 
        JsonSerializer.</p>

<p>
    SerializeObject and DeserializeObject both have overloads that take a 
    <a href="html/T_Newtonsoft_Json_JsonSerializerSettings.htm">JsonSerializerSettings</a> object. JsonSerializerSettings lets you use many of the JsonSerializer settings listed below while still using the simple serialization methods.
</p>

	<h3>JsonSerializer</h3>


	<p>For more control over how an object is serialized the JsonSerializer can be used 
        directly. The JsonSerializer is able to read and write JSON text directly to 
        a stream via <a href="./html/T_Newtonsoft_Json_JsonTextReader.htm">JsonTextReader</a> and <a href="./html/T_Newtonsoft_Json_JsonTextWriter.htm">JsonTextWriter</a>. Other kinds of JsonWriters can 
        also be used such as <a href="./html/T_Newtonsoft_Json_Linq_JTokenReader.htm">JTokenReader</a>/<a href="./html/T_Newtonsoft_Json_Linq_JTokenWriter.htm">JTokenWriter</a> to 
        convert your object to and 
        from LINQ to JSON objects or <a href="./html/T_Newtonsoft_Json_Bson_BsonReader.htm">BsonReader</a>/<a href="./html/T_Newtonsoft_Json_Bson_BsonWriter.htm">BsonWriter</a> to convert to and from BSON.</p>

<p>JsonSerializer has a number of properties on it to customize how it serializes JSON. 
    These can also be used with the methods on JsonConvert via the 
    JsonSerializerSettings overloads.</p>
