Initializes a new instance of the WSTrustRequestSerializer class.


When overridden in a derived class, checks if the specified XML reader is positioned at a WS-Trust RequestSecurityToken element.


Creates an instance of the RequestSecurityToken class that this class can serialize or deserialize.

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodReadCustomElement(XmlReader, WSTrustSerializationContext)

When overridden in a derived class, reads a custom element.

System_CAPS_pubmethodReadXml(XmlReader, WSTrustSerializationContext)

When overridden in a derived class, deserializes the RST from an XmlReader object to a RequestSecurityToken object.

System_CAPS_pubmethodReadXmlElement(XmlReader, RequestSecurityToken, WSTrustSerializationContext)

When overridden in a derived class, reads a child element inside the RST.


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


Validates the RequestSecurityToken object that has been deserialized.

System_CAPS_pubmethodWriteKnownRequestElement(RequestSecurityToken, XmlWriter, WSTrustSerializationContext)

When overridden in a derived class, writes the supported elements on the RequestSecurityToken object to the stream.

System_CAPS_pubmethodWriteXml(RequestSecurityToken, XmlWriter, WSTrustSerializationContext)

When overridden in a derived class, serializes the specified RequestSecurityToken object into the XmlWriter object.
