IPEndPoint.Serialize Method

Serializes endpoint information into a SocketAddress instance.

Namespace:  System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public override SocketAddress Serialize()

Return Value

Type: System.Net.SocketAddress
A SocketAddress instance containing the socket address for the endpoint.

The following example uses the Serialize method to serialize endpoint information into a SocketAddress instance.

// The serializeEndpoint method serializes the endpoint and returns the  
// SocketAddress containing the serialized endpoint data. 
private static SocketAddress serializeEndpoint(IPEndPoint endpoint)
{

  // Serialize IPEndPoint details to a SocketAddress instance.
  SocketAddress socketAddress = endpoint.Serialize();

  // Display the serialized endpoint information.
  Console.WriteLine("Endpoint.Serialize() : " + socketAddress.ToString());

  Console.WriteLine("Socket.Family : " + socketAddress.Family);
  Console.WriteLine("Socket.Size : " + socketAddress.Size);

  Console.WriteLine("Press any key to continue.");
  Console.ReadLine();

  return socketAddress;
}
// The serializeEndpoint function serializes the endpoint and returns the 
// SocketAddress containing the serialized endpoint data.
SocketAddress* serializeEndpoint(IPEndPoint* endpoint)
{

   // Serialize IPEndPoint details to a SocketAddress instance.
   SocketAddress* socketAddress = endpoint->Serialize();

   // Display the serialized endpoint information.
   Console::WriteLine(S"Endpoint.Serialize() : {0}", socketAddress);

   Console::WriteLine(S"Socket->Family : {0}", __box(socketAddress->Family));
   Console::WriteLine(S"Socket->Size : {0}", __box(socketAddress->Size));

   Console::WriteLine(S"Press any key to continue.");
   Console::ReadLine();

   return socketAddress;
}
