DesignerSerializerAttribute provides a way to indicate to the designer serialization manager that a specific type of serializer should be used when serializing the values of an object. This allows you to specify a serializer that is capable of serializing a custom type, for instance. Place this attribute on a class to indicate the serialization object to use when serializing the class.

The following code uses a DesignerSerializerAttribute to associate an example serializer with an example component.

    [DesignerSerializerAttribute(typeof(ExampleSerializer), typeof(CodeDomSerializer))]
	public class ExampleControl : System.Windows.Forms.UserControl
	{
		public ExampleControl()
		{

		}
	}
