DesignerSerializerAttribute Class

Namespace: System.ComponentModel.Design.Serialization
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Class|AttributeTargets.Interface, AllowMultiple=true, Inherited=true)] 
public sealed class DesignerSerializerAttribute : Attribute
/** @attribute AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Class|AttributeTargets.Interface, AllowMultiple=true, Inherited=true) */ 
public final class DesignerSerializerAttribute extends Attribute

public final class DesignerSerializerAttribute extends Attribute
Not applicable.

DesignerSerializerAttribute provides a way to indicate to the designer serialization manager that a specific type of serializer should be used when serializing the values of an object. This allows you to specify a serializer that is capable of serializing a custom type, for instance. Place this attribute on a class to indicate the serialization object to use when serializing the class.

The following code uses a DesignerSerializerAttribute to associate an example serializer with an example component.

[DesignerSerializerAttribute(typeof(ExampleSerializer), typeof(CodeDomSerializer))]
public class ExampleControl : System.Windows.Forms.UserControl
{
    public ExampleControl()
    {

    }
}

/** @attribute DesignerSerializerAttribute(ExampleSerializer.class, 
    CodeDomSerializer.class)
 */
public class ExampleControl extends System.Windows.Forms.UserControl
{
    public ExampleControl()
    {
    } //ExampleControl
} //ExampleControl
