UnreferencedObjectEventArgs.UnreferencedObject Property

Gets the deserialized, but unreferenced, object.

Namespace:  System.Xml.Serialization
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)

public Object UnreferencedObject { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Object
The deserialized, but unreferenced, object.

The UnreferencedObject can be cast to the known type if examining its properties is required.

See the UnreferencedObject event for more information about the UnreferencedObject property.

The following example adds an UnreferencedObjectEventHandler to an XmlSerializer. The event is handled by the Serializer_UnreferencedObject method. To run the example, cut and paste the following XML into a file named UnrefObj.xml.
