XmlSerializerFactory.CreateSerializer Method (Type, XmlAttributeOverrides, Type[], XmlRootAttribute, String, String)

This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Returns a derivation of the XmlSerializer class that can serialize objects of the specified type into XML document instances, and vice versa. Each object to be serialized can itself contain instances of classes, which this overload can override with other classes. This overload also specifies the default namespace for all the XML elements, and the class to use as the XML root element.

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

public XmlSerializer CreateSerializer(
	Type type,
	XmlAttributeOverrides overrides,
	Type[] extraTypes,
	XmlRootAttribute root,
	string defaultNamespace,
	string location
)
