Thetype exposes the following members.
|Binder||Gets or sets the SerializationBinder that performs type lookups during deserialization. (Inherited from IFormatter.)|
|Context||Gets or sets the StreamingContext used for serialization and deserialization. (Inherited from IFormatter.)|
|SurrogateSelector||Gets or sets the SurrogateSelector used by the current formatter. (Inherited from IFormatter.)|
|Deserialize(Stream)||Deserializes the data on the provided stream and reconstitutes the graph of objects. (Inherited from IFormatter.)|
|Deserialize(Stream, HeaderHandler)||Begins the deserialization process of a remote procedure call (RPC).|
|Serialize(Stream, Object)||Serializes an object, or graph of objects with the given root to the provided stream. (Inherited from IFormatter.)|
|Serialize(Stream, Object, Header)||Starts the serialization process of a remote procedure call (RPC).|
The interface allows the implementing formatter to send and receive remote procedure calls (RPCs). For more information, see BinaryFormatter. This interface is derived from .
