Parameters

reader

An XmlReader used to read the XML stream or document.

Return Value

true if the reader is positioned over the starting element; otherwise, false.

This method checks whether the reader is positioned on an element to read, and returns true if the element is the top-level element for the object found in the XML stream or document. To return true, the found element must have an expected name. The actual expected element name depends on the implementation of the serializer.

With the DataContractSerializer, the starting element is specified in the constructor of the extension class. For an example, see the constructors for the DataContractSerializer class.
