When overridden in a derived class, serializes the graph of objects with the specified root to the stream already attached to the formatter.
The Formatter type is not CLS-compliant. For more information about CLS compliance, see What is the Common Language Specification.
[Visual Basic] Public MustOverride Sub Serialize( _ ByVal serializationStream As Stream, _ ByVal graph As Object _ ) Implements IFormatter.Serialize [C#] public abstract void Serialize( Stream serializationStream, object graph ); [C++] public: virtual void Serialize( Stream* serializationStream, Object* graph ) = 0; [JScript] public abstract function Serialize( serializationStream : Stream, graph : Object );
- The stream to which the objects are serialized.
- The object at the root of the graph to serialize.
Notes to Inheritors: You must implement this method in a derived class.
