XmlMapping Class

This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Supports mappings between .NET Framework types and XML Schema data types.

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

public abstract class XmlMapping

The XmlMapping class is the base class for the XmlTypeMapping and XmlMembersMapping classes. It supports built-in and custom XML schema data types, plus SOAP encoding (Section 5 of the SOAP 1.1 specification).

XmlMapping exposes no public or protected members. Use the XmlMapping class instead of deriving a class directly from XmlMapping.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
