I need to add a URL typically in the format http:\somewebsite.com\somepage.asp. When I create a string with the above URL and add it to JSON object json


it's appending an extra "\" and when I check the output it's like http:\\somewebsite.com\somepage.asp

When I give the URL as http://somewebsite.com/somepage.asp the json output is http:\/\/somewebsite.com\/somepage.asp

Can you help me to retrieve the URL as it is, please?

Your JSON library automatically escapes characters like slashes. On the receiving end, you'll have to remove those backslashes by using a function like replace().

Here's an example:
string receivedUrlString = "http:\/\/somewebsite.com\/somepage.asp";<br />
string cleanedUrlString  = receivedUrlString.replace('\', '');
cleanedUrlString should be "http://somewebsite.com/somepage.asp".
