Exception Condition

An error occurred during deserialization. The original exception is available using the InnerException property.

Deserialization is the process of reading an instance of an XML document and constructing an object that is strongly typed to the XML Schema (XSD) of the document.

Before deserializing, an XmlSerializer must be constructed using the type of the object that is being deserialized.

Set the encodingStyle parameter to "http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/ " for SOAP version 1.1 encoding; otherwise, set it to "http://www.w3.org/2001/12/soap-encoding" for SOAP version 1.2 encoding.

Note   The XmlSerializer cannot deserialize the following: arrays of ArrayList and arrays of List<T>.
