Adds a value into the SerializationInfo store, where value is associated with name and is serialized as being of Type type.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.Serialization
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public void AddValue(
	string name,
	Object value,
	Type type
)

Parameters

name
Type: System.String
The name to associate with the value, so it can be deserialized later.
value
Type: System.Object
The value to be serialized. Any children of this object will automatically be serialized.
type
Type: System.Type
The Type to associate with the current object. This parameter must always be the type of the object itself or of one of its base classes.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

If name or type is null.

SerializationException

A value has already been associated with name.

The assigned type is always the type of the object, or one of its parents.

If two values are added with names that differ only by case, no exception will be thrown, which is not a recommended practice. However, adding two values with the exact same name will cause the SerializationException to be thrown.
