NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodDesignerSerializerAttribute(String, String)

Initializes a new instance of the DesignerSerializerAttribute class.

System_CAPS_pubmethodDesignerSerializerAttribute(String, Type)

Initializes a new instance of the DesignerSerializerAttribute class.

System_CAPS_pubmethodDesignerSerializerAttribute(Type, Type)

Initializes a new instance of the DesignerSerializerAttribute class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertySerializerBaseTypeName

Gets the fully qualified type name of the serializer base type.

System_CAPS_pubpropertySerializerTypeName

Gets the fully qualified type name of the serializer.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTypeId

Indicates a unique ID for this attribute type.(Overrides Attribute.TypeId.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsDefaultAttribute()

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodMatch(Object)

When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCount(UInt32)

Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)

Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

DesignerSerializerAttribute provides a way to indicate to the designer serialization manager that a specific type of serializer should be used when serializing the values of an object. This allows you to specify a serializer that is capable of serializing a custom type, for instance. Place this attribute on a class to indicate the serialization object to use when serializing the class.

The following code uses a DesignerSerializerAttribute to associate an example serializer with an example component.

<DesignerSerializerAttribute(GetType(ExampleSerializer), GetType(CodeDomSerializer))> _
 Public Class ExampleControl
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.UserControl

    Public Sub New()
    End Sub
End Class
