How to get JSON object from Razor Model object in javascript

You could use the following:

var json = @Html.Raw(Json.Encode(@Model.CollegeInformationlist));

This would output the following (without seeing your model I’ve only included one field):

    var json = [{"State":"a state"}];   

Working Fiddle


AspNetCore uses Json.Serialize intead of Json.Encode

var json = @Html.Raw(Json.Serialize(@Model.CollegeInformationlist));

MVC 5/6

You can use Newtonsoft for this:


This gives you more control of the json formatting i.e. indenting as above, camelcasing etc.
