Provides the base class for serializing a reflection primitive within the object graph.
Assembly: System.Design (in System.Design.dll)
The class is a "meta" serializer; that is, is a serializer that does not serialize part of the object graph, but instead serializes a reflection primitive within the object graph. For example, a would be associated with a PropertyDescriptor in order for it to serialize a property. objects enable constructs, such as properties and events, to be logical, rather than requiring them to have a physical backing in code.
Unlike CodeDomSerializer classes, objects must be able to deserialize.
