XmlSerializationWriter.WritePotentiallyReferencingElement Method (String, String, Object, Type, Boolean)


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

Writes a SOAP message XML element that can contain a reference to a <multiRef> XML element for a given object.

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

protected void WritePotentiallyReferencingElement(
	string n,
	string ns,
	object o,
	Type ambientType,
	bool suppressReference


Type: System.String

The local name of the XML element to write.

Type: System.String

The namespace of the XML element to write.

Type: System.Object

The object being serialized either in the current XML element or a multiRef element that is referenced by the current element.

Type: System.Type

The type stored in the object's type mapping (as opposed to the object's type found directly through the typeof operation).

Type: System.Boolean

true to serialize the object directly into the XML element rather than make the element reference another element that contains the data; otherwise, false.

The protected members of XmlSerializationWriter are intended for use only by derived classes that are used internally within the .NET Framework XML serialization infrastructure.

SOAP encoding allows a unique XML element to appear once within a SOAP message as a multiRef element identified by an id attribute. The id value can be referenced multiple times using href attributes (or ref attributes in SOAP 1.2) in substitute elements.

SOAP encoding is described in Section 5 of the SOAP 1.1 specification.
