Namespace:  System.ComponentModel.Design.Serialization

void AddSerializationProvider(
	IDesignerSerializationProvider provider


Type: System.ComponentModel.Design.Serialization.IDesignerSerializationProvider

The serialization provider to add.

This method adds a custom serialization provider to the serialization manager. Serialization providers can provide custom serializers for a particular type of object or set of types of objects. During serialization, each custom serialization provider is queried to return a serializer for a specific data type, if it can provide one. The serialization manager uses the custom serializer provided by this method before using the default serializer for a particular type.
