Generates the C++ code necessary for a dynamic CObject-derived class with run-time access to the class name and position within the hierarchy.
The actual name of the class.
The name of the base class.
A UINT "version number" that will be encoded in the archive to enable a deserializing program to identify and handle data created by earlier program versions. The class schema number must not be –1.
Use the IMPLEMENT_SERIAL macro in a .cpp module; then link the resulting object code only once.
You can use the AFX_API macro to automatically export the CArchive extraction operator for classes that use the DECLARE_SERIAL and IMPLEMENT_SERIAL macros. Bracket the class declarations (located in the .h file) with the following code:
#undef AFX_API #define AFX_API AFX_EXT_CLASS <your class declarations here> #undef AFX_API #define AFX_API
