Gets or sets a value indicating whether the target of the current attribute will be serialized as an XML attribute instead of an XML field.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.Remoting.Metadata
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public virtual bool UseAttribute { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the target object of the current attribute must be serialized as an XML attribute; false if the target object must be serialized as a subelement.
