SerializationStore Class

Provides the base class for storing serialization data for the ComponentSerializationService.


Namespace:  System.ComponentModel.Design.Serialization
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, SharedState = true)]
public abstract class SerializationStore : IDisposable

The SerializationStore type exposes the following members.

Protected methodSerializationStoreInitializes a new instance of the SerializationStore class.

Public propertyErrorsGets a collection of errors that occurred during serialization or deserialization.

Public methodCloseCloses the serialization store.
Protected methodDisposeReleases the unmanaged resources used by the SerializationStore and optionally releases the managed resources.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSaveSaves the store to the given stream.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Explicit interface implemetationPrivate methodIDisposable.DisposeReleases all resources used by the SerializationStore.

The SerializationStore class is an implementation-specific class that stores serialization data for the ComponentSerializationService. The service adds state to this serialization store. Once the store is closed, it can be saved to a stream. A serialization store can be deserialized at a later time by the same type of serialization service. The SerializationStore class implements the IDisposable interface so that IDisposable.Dispose simply calls the Close method.


The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: SharedState. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.
