Hello,

I have a web application that uses RadTreeView control for displaying data. When displaying large amount of data, it throws following error:

"Error during serialization or deserialization using the JSON JavaScriptSerializer. The length of the string exceeds the value set on the maxJsonLength property."

I have tried changing "maxJsonLength" property to value 2147483646 in web.config of the application. But still above error appears.
Please help.


Detailed error is as follows:
Timestamp: 7/13/2012 2:14:51 PM$$$Message: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?><error><message>Error during serialization or deserialization using the JSON JavaScriptSerializer.

Hello Neha,

I have inspected the issue once again and it seems that this is an ASP .NET limitation and there is nothing much more to be done about this issue . You can try to set the value to maxJsonLength="999999999" as it suggested in this blog post as an absolute max value for the JSON data returned from ASP .NET web service.

Here is another forum thread that may be helpful. 

Hope this will be helpful.

Kind regards,
