FormatterServices.GetUninitializedObject Method (Type)

 

Creates a new instance of the specified object type.

Namespace:   System.Runtime.Serialization
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[SecurityCriticalAttribute]
public static object GetUninitializedObject(
	Type type
)

Parameters

type
Type: System.Type

The type of object to create.

Return Value

Type: System.Object

A zeroed object of the specified type.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

The type parameter is null.

SecurityException

The caller does not have the required permission.

Because the new instance of the object is initialized to zero and no constructors are run, the object might not represent a state that is regarded as valid by that object. The current method should only be used for deserialization when the user intends to immediately populate all fields. It does not create an uninitialized string, since creating an empty instance of an immutable type serves no purpose.

System_CAPS_noteNote

You cannot use the GetUninitializedObject method to create instances of types that derive from the ContextBoundObject class.

SecurityPermission

For providing serialization services. Associated enumeration: SecurityPermissionFlag.SerializationFormatter, SecurityAction.LinkDemand.
