Namespace:  System.Xml.Serialization
Assembly:  System.Xml.Serialization (in System.Xml.Serialization.dll)

public void Serialize(
	XmlWriter xmlWriter,
	Object o,
	XmlSerializerNamespaces namespaces
)

Parameters

xmlWriter
Type: System.Xml.XmlWriter
The XmlWriter used to write the XML document.
o
Type: System.Object
The Object to serialize.
namespaces
Type: System.Xml.Serialization.XmlSerializerNamespaces
The XmlSerializerNamespaces referenced by the object.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

An error occurred during serialization. The original exception is available using the InnerException property.

When the Serialize method is invoked, the public fields and read/write properties of an object are converted into XML. Methods, indexers, private fields, and read-only properties are not serialized.

Use the xmlWriter parameter to specify an object that derives from the abstract XmlWriter class, which is designed to write XML documents.

NoteNote:

The XmlSerializer cannot serialize arrays of List<T>.
