SerializeAbsoluteContext Class

Specifies that serializers should handle default values. This class cannot be inherited.


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

public sealed class SerializeAbsoluteContext

The SerializeAbsoluteContext type exposes the following members.

Public methodSerializeAbsoluteContext()Initializes a new instance of the SerializeAbsoluteContext class.
Public methodSerializeAbsoluteContext(MemberDescriptor)Initializes a new instance of the SerializeAbsoluteContext class with the option of binding to a specific member.

Public propertyMemberGets the member to which this context is bound.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodShouldSerializeGets a value indicating whether the given member should be serialized in this context.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The ComponentSerializationService supports absolute serialization. This means that instead of serializing only values that differ from an object's default values, all values are serialized, allowing values to be reset to their defaults for objects that may have already been initialized. When a component serialization service wishes to indicate this behavior to CodeDomSerializer objects, it will place a SerializeAbsoluteContext object on the context stack. The member in this context may be null, to indicate that all members are serialized, or it can indicate that only a specific member is being serialized at this time.

.NET Framework

Supported in: 4.6, 4.5, 4, 3.5, 3.0, 2.0

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
