XmlSerializer.XmlSerializer(Type, XmlAttributeOverrides, Type[], XmlRootAttribute, String, String, Evidence) Constructor

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

Initializes a new instance of the XmlSerializer class that can serialize objects of the specified type into XML document instances, and deserialize XML document instances into objects of the specified type. This overload allows you to supply other types that can be encountered during a serialization or deserialization operation, as well as a default namespace for all XML elements, the class to use as the XML root element, its location, and credentials required for access.

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

The type of the object that this XmlSerializer can serialize.


An XmlAttributeOverrides that extends or overrides the behavior of the class specified in the type parameter.


A Type array of additional object types to serialize.


An XmlRootAttribute that defines the XML root element properties.


The default namespace of all XML elements in the XML document.


The location of the types.


An instance of the Evidence class that contains credentials required to access types.

Allows more precise control over access to a temporary directory and prevents code injection and exploitation. To use this method, specify a location and give access only to specific users. Administrators can set up policies with evidence lists that match evidence to permissions.
