Public methodCanWriteTypeQueries whether this MediaTypeFormatter can serializean object of the specified type.
Public methodEquals (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalize (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodStatic memberGetDefaultValueForTypeGets the default value for the specified type.
Public methodGetHashCode (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetPerRequestFormatterInstanceReturns a specialized instance of the MediaTypeFormatter that can format a response for the given parameters.
Public methodGetType (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodReadFromStreamAsync(Type, Stream, HttpContent, IFormatterLogger)Asynchronously deserializes an object of the specified type.
Public methodReadFromStreamAsync(Type, Stream, HttpContent, IFormatterLogger, CancellationToken)Asynchronously deserializes an object of the specified type.
Public methodSelectCharacterEncodingDetermines the best character encoding for reading or writing an HTTP entity body, given a set of content headers.
Public methodSetDefaultContentHeaders Sets the default headers for content that will be formatted using this formatter. This method is called from the ObjectContent constructor.
