    I am trying to send some data to my Node.JS server using Socket.io. I have a little experience with JSON, but I am no expert. I am using socket.Emit(string ev, JSONObject data), but I have no idea how to form a JSONObject with the data I need to send. I have so far:
    Code (CSharp):
    1.        
    2. void Start () {
    3.  
    4.     latitude = GPS.Instance.latitude.ToString();
    5.     longitude = GPS.Instance.longitude.ToString();
    6.  
    7.     string coordinatesJson = "{ 'latitude': latitude, 'longitude': longitude }";
    8.  
    9.     socket.Emit("send coordinates", coordinatesJson);
    10. }
    11.  
    But this doesn't work because coordinatesJson is a string, of course. Could someone explain how I can create a JSONObject to send this data?

    Change to this:
    Code (CSharp):
    1. socket.Emit("send coordinates", new JSONObject(coordinatesJson));
