XmlAttributeOverrides.Add Method (Type, XmlAttributes)

 

Adds an XmlAttributes object to the collection of XmlAttributes objects. The type parameter specifies an object to be overridden by the XmlAttributes object.

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

member Add : 
        type:Type *
        attributes:XmlAttributes -> unit

Parameters

type
Type: System.Type

The Type of the object that is overridden.

attributes
Type: System.Xml.Serialization.XmlAttributes

An XmlAttributes object that represents the overriding attributes.

The XmlAttributes object contains a union of attribute objects that cause the XmlSerializer to override its default serialization behavior for a set of objects. You choose the attribute objects to place in the XmlAttributes object, depending on the particular behaviors you want to override. For example, the XmlSerializer serializes a class member as an XML element by default. If you want the member to be serialized as an XM attribute instead, you would create an XmlAttributeAttribute, assign it to the XmlAttribute property of an XmlAttributes, and add the XmlAttributes object to the XmlAttributeOverrides object.

Use this overload to override an XmlRootAttribute or XmlTypeAttribute.

The following example serializes a class named Band which is derived from a class named Orchestra. The example creates an XmlRootAttribute object, and assigns it to the XmlRoot property of an XmlAttributes object. The example then calls the Add method to add the XmlAttributes object to the XmlAttributeOverrides object.
