I am deserializing a json object from a third party API. One of the Objects properties is a variable called "checked". In c#.net 'checked' is a type. Is there anyway to overcome this.

Im using Newtonsoft Json.net to do the deserializing.

Nothing special about the class,

public class item{

  public bool checked;

Hi John,

While @nemesv's answer is correct and will work fine, I just wanted to mention that there is another alternative if you are using Json.Net. You could use a JsonProperty attribute to map your class property to the JSON property such that they can have different names. For example:

public class item



    public bool IsChecked { get; set; }
