Instructs the Silverlight 5 infrastructure to use the DataContractSerializer.
Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Equals||Infrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Match||When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
This attribute is similar to the XmlSerializerFormatAttribute attribute. Both attributes can be applied to either a method or a class.
A method can have either of the two attributes applied, but not both. Any operation that has neither applied uses the attribute applied to the containing class. If the containing class does not have either attribute applied, the DataContractSerializer is used by default.
Applying the attribute also causes a DataContractSerializerOperationBehavior to be created at run time. The behavior allows customization at run time of the serializer behavior.
