Hi All,
I'm storing JSON in my database. I need to return it to the browser, along with other data in a single JSON response.

How can I create serialize the DataSet, so the JSON stays as JSON, and not a bunch of strings?

Thanks in advance.

Here's an example of the output I'm getting
{
"json": [
{
  "id": "a0ff5aa4-38d1-41ba-8a73-408b6bbc3137",
  "requestcomment": "Please revise",
  "created": "2014-07-16T09:42:11.35",
  "responseid": "0a4601d6-45fa-4d12-9491-f5e283cabd2e",
  "version": "Recalc 1.0",
// NOTE: this should not be converted to a string.
  "json": "[{\"complete\":true},{\"assessmentnotes\":\"\"},{\"position\":true,\"lat\":49.010837920576556,\"lon\":-84.46326084968052,\"status\":\"OK\",\"dt\":1404751563883}],
}
]
}

I want something like this
{
"json": [
{
  "id": "a0ff5aa4-38d1-41ba-8a73-408b6bbc3137",
  "requestcomment": "Please revise",
  "created": "2014-07-16T09:42:11.35",
  "responseid": "0a4601d6-45fa-4d12-9491-f5e283cabd2e",
  "version": "Recalc 1.0",
// NOTE: I want to keep my JSON as JSON, not convert to a string...
  "json": [
{"complete":true},{"assessmentnotes":""},"position":true,"lat":49.010837920576556,"lon":-84.46326084968052,"status":"OK","dt":1404751563883}],
}
]
}
