Serialize C# object to JSON JavaScriptSerializer .Net

//declare data you want to send as an object type
public class MyType {
//may simply contain properties mapping to your database rows or be more complex objects
//use [Serializable] attributes to mark props or methods as non-serialized
}
public void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
MyType o1 = new MyType {p1="",p2=""};


Response.Write(JSONSerialize(o1));

Response.Write("<br /><br />");

MyType o2 = new MyType {p1="",p2=""};
List<MyType> olist = new List<MyType> {o1, o2};

Response.Write(JSONSerialize(olist));
}

public string JSONSerialize(MyType o) {
System.Web.Script.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer sz = 
         new System.Web.Script.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer();
return sz.Serialize(o);
}

//additional signature to handle lists of object
public string JSONSerialize(List<MyType> o) {
System.Web.Script.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer sz = 
         new System.Web.Script.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer();
return sz.Serialize(o);
}
