Gets or sets a data member name.
Assembly: System.Runtime.Serialization (in System.Runtime.Serialization.dll)
This property is used to override the default name of the data member that is derived from the name of the member annotated with the DataMemberAttribute.
The property enables you to use names that are not permitted as common language runtime (CLR) identifiers. In addition, this property enables the type author to define a data member name separate from the CLR member name. This separate definition helps in versioning scenarios (changing the CLR member name without breaking the data contract) and allows a different naming convention for data contact members and CLR members.
