XmlElementEventArgs Class

Provides data for the UnknownElement event.

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

'Declaration
Public Class XmlElementEventArgs
	Inherits EventArgs
'Usage
Dim instance As XmlElementEventArgs

public class XmlElementEventArgs extends EventArgs
public class XmlElementEventArgs extends EventArgs

For more information about handling events, see Events and Delegates and Raising an Event.

The UnknownElement event occurs only when you call the Deserialize method.

The following example deserializes a class named Group from a file named UnknownElements.xml. Whenever an element is found in the file that has no corresponding member in the class, the UnknownElement event occurs. To try the example, paste the following XML code into a file named UnknownElements.xml.

 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
 <Group xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
   <GroupName>MyGroup</GroupName>
   <GroupSize>Large</GroupSize>
   <GroupNumber>444</GroupNumber>
   <GroupBase>West</GroupBase>
 </Group>
