The XmlTypeAttribute belongs to a family of attributes that controls how the XmlSerializer serializes or deserializes an object.

You can apply the XmlTypeAttribute to a class, structure, enumeration, or interface declaration.

Apply the XmlTypeAttribute to a class to specify the XML type's namespace, the XML type name, and whether to include the type in the XML schema document.

NoteNote:

You can use the word XmlType in your code instead of the longer XmlTypeAttribute.
