OnSerializedAttribute Class

When applied to a method, specifies that the method is called after serialization of an object graph.

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

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets::Method, Inherited = false)]
public ref class OnSerializedAttribute sealed : public Attribute

Use the OnSerializedAttribute to manipulate the object after serialization has occurred.

To use the OnSerializedAttribute, the method must contain a StreamingContext parameter. The attribute marks the method to be called by the serialization infrastructure and the StreamingContext provides additional data about the type of serialization taking place. The usage is shown in the following code:

\\ C#
[OnSerializedAttribute()]
internal void RunThisMethod(StreamingContext context)
{ 
    // Code not shown.
}
' Visual Basic
<OnSerializedAttribute()> _
Private Sub RunThisMethod(context As StreamingContext)
    ' Code not shown.
End Sub
NoteNote:

In your code, you can use the word OnSerialized instead of the longer OnSerializedAttribute.

The following example applies the OnDeserializedAttribute, OnSerializingAttribute, OnSerializedAttribute, and OnDeserializingAttribute attributes to methods in a class.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

System::Object
