Controls how the XmlSerializer serializes an enumeration member.
Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Equals||Infrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Match||When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
The belongs to a family of attributes that controls how the XmlSerializer serializes or deserializes an object.
Use the to change the enumeration that the XmlSerializer generates or recognizes (when it serializes or deserializes a class, respectively). For example, if an enumeration contains a member named One, but you prefer that the XML output be named Single, apply the to the enumeration member and set the Name property to "Single".
You can override the Name property value of an by creating an instance of the class and assigning it to the XmlEnum property of an XmlAttributes object. For more information, see the XmlAttributeOverrides class.
You can use the word XmlEnum in your code instead of the longer .
