Return Value

Type: System.String

The name of the assembly that contains specially built serializers.

The XML Serializer Generator Tool (Sgen.exe) creates an XML serialization assembly for types in a specified assembly to improve the run-time performance of an XmlSerializer when it serializes or deserializes objects of the specified types. Use the GetXmlSerializerAssemblyName to return the name of such an assembly.

If you are distributing such an assembly as part of a client application that calls a Web service, you can apply the XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute to the client type to specify the location and name of the assembly.
