NetDataContractSerializer::ReadObject Method (XmlDictionaryReader^, Boolean)


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Reads the XML stream or document with an XmlDictionaryReader and returns the deserialized object; also checks whether the object data conforms to the name and namespace used to create the serializer.

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

virtual Object^ ReadObject(
	XmlDictionaryReader^ reader,
	bool verifyObjectName
) override


Type: System.Xml::XmlDictionaryReader^

The XmlDictionaryReader used to read the XML stream or document.

Type: System::Boolean

true to check whether the enclosing XML element name and namespace correspond to the root name and root namespace used to construct the serializer; false to skip the verification.

Return Value

Type: System::Object^

The deserialized object.

Exception Condition

the reader is set to null.

The verifyObjectName parameter determines whether it can read an object by examining the name and namespace of the XML element the reader is positioned at, and comparing the values to expected name and namespace. The expected name and namespace can be set with the following: the data contract name and namespace of the type passed into the constructor, or the rootName and rootNamespace values passed into the constructor (if present).

You can set the rootName and rootNamespace in the following constructors: NetDataContractSerializer(String^, String^), NetDataContractSerializer(XmlDictionaryString^, XmlDictionaryString^), and NetDataContractSerializer(XmlDictionaryString^, XmlDictionaryString^, StreamingContext, Int32, Boolean, FormatterAssemblyStyle, ISurrogateSelector^).
