JsonTypeInfo.Kind Property


Gets a value that describes the kind of contract metadata that the current instance specifies.

 property System::Text::Json::Serialization::Metadata::JsonTypeInfoKind Kind { System::Text::Json::Serialization::Metadata::JsonTypeInfoKind get(); };
public System.Text.Json.Serialization.Metadata.JsonTypeInfoKind Kind { get; }
member this.Kind : System.Text.Json.Serialization.Metadata.JsonTypeInfoKind
Public ReadOnly Property Kind As JsonTypeInfoKind

Property Value


The value of Kind determines what aspects of the JSON contract are configurable. For example, it is only possible to configure the Properties list for metadata of kind Object.

The value of Kind is determined exclusively by the JsonConverter resolved for the current type, and cannot be changed once resolution has happened. User-defined custom converters (specified either via JsonConverterAttribute or Converters) are metadata-agnostic and thus always resolve to None.
