Avoiding CamelCasePropertyNamesContractResolver for a specific method

Posted on

Problem :

I have web api controllers and I am using this method of configuration in WebApiConfig file for camel casing my results for all controllers.

var json = GlobalConfiguration.Configuration.Formatters.JsonFormatter;
json.SerializerSettings.ContractResolver = new CamelCasePropertyNamesContractResolver();

Now I have a controller’s method which is giving data to Angularjs translation provider and all translation strings are not in camelcase in my html, thats why I need results of that method to be not in CamelCase. How to avoid camel casing serialization behavior for this specific controllers’ method.

Solution :

you can use ApiController.Json method.

just return like this from your controller method

return Json(data, new JsonSerializerSettings { ContractResolver = new DefaultContractResolver() });
