Hi,

I am trying to read the REST from:

https://documentation.onesignal.com/reference/view-notification

but getting:

cannot convert to 'System.Collections.IEnumerable'

I tried both:

Root data = JsonSerializer.Deserialize<Root>(result);

and:

Root data = (Root)JsonSerializer.Deserialize<IEnumerable<Root>>(result);

This is my code:

var client = new HttpClient();

UriBuilder builder = new UriBuilder(string.Format("https://onesignal.com/api/v1/notifications/{0}", message_id));
builder.Query = "app_id=" + SecureStorage.GetAsync("AppID").Result;

client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Add("authorization", "Basic " + SecureStorage.GetAsync("AppAuthID").Result);

var response = await client.GetAsync(builder.Uri);

var result = await response.Content.ReadAsStringAsync();

// Root data = JsonSerializer.Deserialize<Root>(result);
Root data = (Root)JsonSerializer.Deserialize<IEnumerable<Root>>(result);

BindableLayout.SetItemsSource(ScrollViewNotification, data);

Here is the Class:

public class Contents
{
    public string ar { get; set; }
    public string en { get; set; }
}

public class Data

public class Headings

    Hello,

    Welcome to our Microsoft Q&A platform!

    I'm afraid you need to change the Root data = (Root)JsonSerializer.Deserialize<IEnumerable<Root>>(result); to

     Root data = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<Root>(result);  
    

    From the Txt file your provided, we can see this result is not a list, the json formart is {......}, so it cannot convert to System.Collections.IEnumerable , only this formart [......] can be converted .

    In addition, android_visibility , ios_badgeCount, ios_relevance_score , isSMS , priority , ttl these fields are null in the Txt file your provided, however, they cannot be null. So, I change these Property Type to object in class Root.

    public object android_visibility { get; set; }  
    

    For more information about IEnumerable Interface , you could refer to
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/api/system.collections.ienumerable?view=net-6.0

    ------------update-----------
    According to your StackLayout, if you use BindableLayout.SetItemsSource, the layout is a collection, you could set ItemTemplate, refer to the following code :

     var data = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<Root>(json);  
     var bindObject = new Root[]  
                     {  
                        data,  
                     };  
     BindableLayout.SetItemsSource(StackLayoutNotification, bindObject);  
    

    Xaml

    <StackLayout x:Name="StackLayoutNotification">  
                <BindableLayout.ItemTemplate>  
                    <DataTemplate>  
                        <Grid>  
                    <Grid.RowDefinitions>  
                        <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />  
                        <RowDefinition Height="Auto" />  
                    </Grid.RowDefinitions>  
      
                    <Label TextColor="Yellow" Grid.Row="0" Text="{Binding id}" HorizontalOptions="FillAndExpand" VerticalOptions="FillAndExpand" HorizontalTextAlignment="Start" FontSize="20" LineBreakMode="WordWrap" />  
                </Grid>  
                    </DataTemplate>  
                </BindableLayout.ItemTemplate>  
      </StackLayout>  
    

    For more information, you could refer to https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/xamarin/xamarin-forms/user-interface/layouts/bindable-layouts

    In addition, I noticed that there is only one object, you also could use MVVM and Data Binding to bind Root class.
