ImportOptions::ReferencedCollectionTypes Property

Gets a collection of types that represents data contract collections that should be referenced when generating code for collections, such as lists or dictionaries of items.

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

property ICollection<Type^>^ ReferencedCollectionTypes {
	ICollection<Type^>^ get ();

Property Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic::ICollection<Type>
An ICollection<T> that contains the referenced collection types.

By default, an array will be generated when importing a collection schema (unless the schema has a special annotation that mentions a different type). However, if there is a matching type in the ReferencedCollectionTypes collection, that type will be used. For example, when importing schema that contains a list of integers, an array of integers will normally be generated. However, if the collection contains the LinkedList<T> of type integer, that type will be used instead of the array.
