Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The following is a module which demonstrates how to convert a simple object to a class type, as well as parsing a JSON a serialized object back to its class type.


1. Convert Simple Object To Typed Class

The example below demonstrates how to convert a simple object to its class type. Converting the simple object to its class type allows us to use its class functions.

The ‘Utils.ctype‘ function converts the object to a class, which allows to use the functions from that class.


2. Deserialize Simple JSON Object To Typed Class

Parsing a simple JSON string and converting it to a typed class can be achieved in a similar way. The example below demonstrates this.


3. Deserialize Nested JSON Object To Typed Class

Parsing a multi-leveled, nested JSON string and converting it to a typed class is done a little differently. We have to map the JSON structure with the values we want to convert. This is done using ‘Utils.ctypeMap‘.

The example below demonstrates this.


4. Utils.ctype/ctypeMap Namespace

The following is the Utils.js Namespace. Include this in your project to start using!
