Remarks

RootDesignerSerializerAttribute indicates the serializer to use when the serialization manager serializes the design document, and whether the specified serializer supports automatic reloading of the design document without first completely disposing of the document.

This attribute contains the following significant members:

  • SerializerTypeName indicates what serialization object to use to serialize the class at design time.

  • SerializerBaseTypeName indicates the fully qualified name of the serialization object's base type.

  • Reloadable indicates whether the serializer supports reloading a design document without user interaction to open a new designer view.

Examples

The following example code applies a RootDesignerSerializerAttribute to a component.

<DesignerSerializer(GetType(MyCodeDomSerializer), GetType(CodeDomSerializer))> _
Public Class MyComponent
   Inherits Component
   Private localProperty As String = "Component Property Value" 

   Public Property LocalProp() As String 
      Get 
         Return localProperty
      End Get 
      Set(ByVal Value As String)
         localProperty = Value
      End Set 
   End Property 
End Class 'MyComponent
[DesignerSerializer(typeof(MyCodeDomSerializer), typeof(CodeDomSerializer))]
public class MyComponent : Component {
    private string localProperty = "Component Property Value";
    public string LocalProperty {
        get {
            return localProperty;
        }
        set {
            localProperty = value;
        }
    }
}
   [DesignerSerializer(CodeDomSerializerSample::MyCodeDomSerializer::typeid,
      CodeDomSerializer::typeid)]
   public ref class MyComponent: public Component
   {
   private:
      String^ localProperty;

   public:
      MyComponent()
      {
         localProperty = "Component Property Value";
      }

      property String^ LocalProperty 
      {
         String^ get()
         {
            return localProperty;
         }
         void set( String^ value )
         {
            localProperty = value;
         }
      }
   };
}
