|GetKnownCustomDataTypes||Sets the collection of known types to use for serialization and deserialization of the custom data objects.|
|GetObjectToSerialize||During serialization, returns an object that substitutes the specified object.|
|GetReferencedTypeOnImport||During schema import, returns the type referenced by the schema.|
|ProcessImportedType||Processes the type that has been generated from the imported schema.|
