I have been searching this topic over the internet and found a few solutions, but I can't seem to find any for Visual Basic. I tried json from codeplex, newtonsoft but has no luck...

the json data that i want to parse is this

{"sample":[{"id":"1","fname":"kristine","lname":"reyes","address":"manila"}]}

hope anyone could help.. thanks

There is litJson but I haven't personally tried it. I think it is from .Net frame work 3.5 so its not too old. And there is the JavaScriptSerializer class introduced in 3.5 which is apparently OK (again, I haven't used it myself).

ahh i am aware of the existence of the JavaScriptSerializer but i don't know how to use it....

http://www.json.org/ has a giant list of libraries. You might look under "C#"; the language doesn't matter as long as it targets the .NET platform.
