DataContractSerializer Constructor (Type, IEnumerable(Type), Int32, Boolean, Boolean, IDataContractSurrogate, DataContractResolver)

DataContractSerializer Constructor (Type, IEnumerable(Of Type), Int32, Boolean, Boolean, IDataContractSurrogate, DataContractResolver)

Initializes a new instance of the DataContractSerializer class to serialize or deserialize an object of the specified type. This method also specifies a list of known types that may be present in the object graph, the maximum number of graph items to serialize, parameters to ignore unexpected data, whether to use non-standard XML constructs to preserve object reference data in the graph, a surrogate for custom serialization, and an alternative for mapping xsi:type declarations at run time.

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

	type As Type, _

Type: System.Type
The type of the instances that are serialized or deserialized.
Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable(Of Type)
An IEnumerable(Of T) of Type that contains the known types that may be present in the object graph.
Type: System.Int32
The maximum number of items in the graph to serialize or deserialize. The default is the value returned by the MaxValue property.
Type: System.Boolean
true to ignore the data supplied by an extension of the type upon serialization and deserialization; otherwise, false.
Type: System.Boolean
true to use non-standard XML constructs to preserve object reference data; otherwise, false.
Type: System.Runtime.Serialization.IDataContractSurrogate
An implementation of the IDataContractSurrogate to customize the serialization process.
Type: System.Runtime.Serialization.DataContractResolver
An implementation of the DataContractResolver to map xsi:type declarations to data contract types.
