The XmlRootAttribute belongs to a family of attributes that controls how the XmlSerializer serializes or deserializes an object.

You can apply the XmlRootAttribute to a class, structure, enumeration, or interface. You can also apply the attribute to the return value of an XML Web service method.

Every XML document must have a single root element that contains all the other elements. The XmlRootAttribute allows you to control how the XmlSerializer generates the root element by setting certain properties. For example, specify the name of the generated XML element by setting the ElementName property.

NoteNote:

You can use the word XmlRoot in your code instead of the longer XmlRootAttribute.
