Extracts data from object obj and stores it in the SerializationInfo info parameter.

Having located the surrogate, this method stores information on the object obj in the SerializationInfo info parameter. This information describes its view of that object, including the object's fields, properties, and current values. The SerializationInfo might correspond to the actual object, or it can be a synthesized view of the surrogate.

This method is protected by a SecurityAction.LinkDemand for the SecurityPermission with the SecurityPermissionFlag.SerializationFormatter specified.
