public class XmlAttributes

The XmlAttributes type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public propertyXmlAnyAttributeGets or sets the XmlAnyAttributeAttribute to override.
Public propertyXmlAnyElementsGets the collection of XmlAnyElementAttribute objects to override.
Public propertyXmlArrayGets or sets an object that specifies how the XmlSerializer serializes a public field or read/write property that returns an array.
Public propertyXmlArrayItemsGets or sets a collection of objects that specify how the XmlSerializer serializes items inserted into an array returned by a public field or read/write property.
Public propertyXmlAttributeGets or sets an object that specifies how the XmlSerializer serializes a public field or public read/write property as an XML attribute.
Public propertyXmlChoiceIdentifierGets or sets an object that allows you to distinguish between a set of choices.
Public propertyXmlDefaultValueGets or sets the default value of an XML element or attribute.
Public propertyXmlElementsGets a collection of objects that specify how the XmlSerializer serializes a public field or read/write property as an XML element.
Public propertyXmlEnumGets or sets an object that specifies how the XmlSerializer serializes an enumeration member.
Public propertyXmlIgnoreGets or sets a value that specifies whether the XmlSerializer serializes a public field or public read/write property.
Public propertyXmlnsGets or sets a value that specifies whether to keep all namespace declarations when an object that contains a member that returns an XmlSerializerNamespaces object is overridden.
Public propertyXmlRootGets or sets an object that specifies how the XmlSerializer serializes a class as an XML root element.
Public propertyXmlTextGets or sets an object that instructs the XmlSerializer to serialize a public field or public read/write property as XML text.
Public propertyXmlTypeGets or sets an object that specifies how the XmlSerializer serializes a class to which the XmlTypeAttribute has been applied.

Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Creating the XmlAttributes is part of a process that overrides the default way the XmlSerializer serializes class instances. For example, suppose you want to serialize an object that is created from a DLL that has an inaccessible source. By using the XmlAttributeOverrides, you can augment or otherwise control how the object is serialized.

The members of the XmlAttributes class correspond directly to a family of attribute classes that control serialization. For example, the XmlText property must be set to an XmlTextAttribute, which allows you to override serialization of a field or property by instructing the XmlSerializer to serialize the property value as XML text. For a complete list of attributes that control serialization, see the XmlSerializer.
