public XmlTypeAttribute()

The following example creates two instances of the XmlTypeAttribute class that are used to override the serialization of the two classes.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Xml.Serialization;

public class Person
{
   public string personName;
   public Address address;
}
public class Address
{
   public string state;
   public string zip;
}

public class PersonTypeAttribute
{
   public static void Main()
   {
      PersonTypeAttribute myPersonTypeAttribute= new PersonTypeAttribute();
      myPersonTypeAttribute.SerializeObject("XmlType.xml");
   }

   public XmlSerializer CreateOverrider()
   {
      XmlAttributeOverrides personOverride = new XmlAttributeOverrides();      

      XmlAttributes personAttributes = new XmlAttributes();      
      XmlTypeAttribute personType = new XmlTypeAttribute();
      personType.TypeName = "Employee";
      personType.Namespace = "http://www.microsoft.com";
      personAttributes.XmlType = personType;

      XmlAttributes addressAttributes = new XmlAttributes();
      // Create 'XmlTypeAttribute' with 'TypeName' as an argument.
      XmlTypeAttribute addressType = new XmlTypeAttribute("Address");
      addressType.Namespace = "http://www.microsoft.com";
      addressAttributes.XmlType=addressType;

      personOverride.Add(typeof(Person) ,personAttributes);
      personOverride.Add(typeof(Address),addressAttributes);

      XmlSerializer myXmlSerializer = new XmlSerializer
         (typeof(Person), personOverride);
      return myXmlSerializer;
   }

   public void SerializeObject(string filename)
   {
      XmlSerializer myXmlSerializer = CreateOverrider();

      Address myAddress = new Address();
      myAddress.state="AAA";
      myAddress.zip="11111";

      Person myPerson = new Person();
      myPerson.personName="Smith";
      myPerson.address=myAddress;
      // Serialize to a file.
      TextWriter writer = new StreamWriter(filename);
      myXmlSerializer.Serialize(writer, myPerson);
   }
}
