SoapIgnoreAttribute Class

Instructs the XmlSerializer not to serialize the public field or public read/write property value.

Namespace: System.Xml.Serialization
Assembly: System.Xml (in system.xml.dll)

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Property|AttributeTargets.Field|AttributeTargets.Parameter|AttributeTargets.ReturnValue)] 
public class SoapIgnoreAttribute : Attribute
/** @attribute AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Property|AttributeTargets.Field|AttributeTargets.Parameter|AttributeTargets.ReturnValue) */ 
public class SoapIgnoreAttribute extends Attribute
AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Property|AttributeTargets.Field|AttributeTargets.Parameter|AttributeTargets.ReturnValue) 
public class SoapIgnoreAttribute extends Attribute

The SoapIgnoreAttribute class belongs to a family of attributes that controls how the XmlSerializer serializes or deserializes an object as encoded SOAP XML. The resulting XML conforms to section 5 of the World Wide Web Consortium (www.w3.org) document, "Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) 1.1". For a complete list of similar attributes, see Attributes That Control Encoded SOAP Serialization.

To serialize an object as an encoded SOAP message, you must construct the XmlSerializer using an XmlTypeMapping created with the ImportTypeMapping method of the SoapReflectionImporter class.

Apply the SoapIgnoreAttribute to any class member that you want the XmlSerializer to ignore when an instance of the class is serialized. For example, you may do this when the member is used to contain metadata about the object being serialized.

For more information about using attributes, see Extending Metadata Using Attributes.

NoteNote

You can use the word SoapIgnore in your code instead of the longer SoapIgnoreAttribute.

The following example serializes a class named Group. The serialization of the GroupName and IgnoreThis fields and the members of the GroupType enumeration are overridden. In the CreateOverrideSerializer method, a SoapAttributeOverrides is created, and for each overridden member or enumeration, a SoapAttributes is created with the appropriate property set and added to the SoapAttributeOverrides. An XmlTypeMapping is created using the SoapAttributeOverrides, and that XmlTypeMapping is used to create the XmlSerializer that overrides the default serialization.
