Supports cloning, which creates a new instance of a class with the same value as an existing instance.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
The interface enables you to provide a customized implementation that creates a copy of an existing object. The interface contains one member, the Clone method, which is intended to provide cloning support beyond that supplied by Object.MemberwiseClone. For more information about cloning, deep versus shallow copies, and examples, see the Object.MemberwiseClone method.Notes to Implementers
The interface simply requires that the method return a copy of the current object instance. It does not specify whether the cloning operation performs a deep copy, a shallow copy, or something in between. Nor does it require all property values of the original instance to be copied to the new instance. For example, the NumberFormatInfo.Clone method performs a shallow copy of all properties except the NumberFormatInfo.IsReadOnly property; it always sets this property value to false in the cloned object. The documentation for your Clone implementation should specify the exact character of the copy operation that it performs.
