//Here is the BaseResponse class
public class BaseResponse
public BaseResponse() { }
public string Code { get; set; }
public string Status { get; set; }

//Here is the PdfLinkResponse class
public class PdfLinkResponse : BaseResponse
public PdfLinkResponse() { }
public Link Link { get; set; }

public class LinkResponse
public string Href { get; set; }
public string Rel { get; set; }

public Color() { }
public List<LinkResponse> Links { get; set; }
public int A { get; set; }
public int B { get; set; }
public int G { get; set; }
public int R { get; set; }

'build URI to get selected link on a page
Dim strURI As String = "http://api.saaspose.com/v1.0/pdf/input.pdf/pages/1/links/1"
Dim signedURI As String = Sign(strURI)
Dim responseStream As Stream = ProcessCommand(signedURI, "GET")
Dim reader As New StreamReader(responseStream)
Dim strJSON As String = reader.ReadToEnd()
'Parse the json string to JObject
Dim parsedJSON As JObject = JObject.Parse(strJSON)
'Deserializes the JSON to a object.
