Use the XmlIncludeAttribute when you call the Serialize or Deserialize method of the XmlSerializer class.

When applying the XmlIncludeAttribute, specify the Type of the derived class. When the XmlSerializer serializes objects that include both the base and the derived class, it can then recognize both object types.

You can use the XmlIncludeAttribute to include derived classes in service description documents that are written in the Web Services Description Language (WSDL). For example, if a method returns an Object, apply the XmlIncludeAttribute to the method and specify the actual types to return.
