XmlElementAttribute Constructor (String)
Initializes a new instance of the XmlElementAttribute class and specifies the name of the XML element.
Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
By default, the XmlSerializer uses the member name as the XML element name when serializing a class instance. For example, a field named Vehicle generates an XML element named Vehicle. However if you need a different element, such as Cars, pass it in the elementName parameter.
The following example shows a simple class that contains a single field named Vehicles. The example applies the XmlElementAttribute to the field and includes the elementName parameter, thereby instructing the XmlSerializer to generate XML elements named "Cars" rather than "Vehicles".
