Using the newer ASP.NET Web API, in Chrome I am seeing XML – how can I change it to request JSON so I can view it in the browser? I do believe it is just part of the request headers, am I correct in that?
I just add the following in
App_Start / WebApiConfig.cs class in my MVC Web API project.
config.Formatters.JsonFormatter.SupportedMediaTypes .Add(new MediaTypeHeaderValue("text/html") );
That makes sure you get JSON on most queries, but you can get
XML when you send
If you need to have the response
application/json please check Todd’s answer below.
