When applied to a method, specifies that the method is during serialization of an object in an object graph. The order of serialization relative to other objects in the graph is non-deterministic.

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)
Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)
When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)
When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)
Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)
|_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)|
Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)
|_Attribute.GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)|
Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)
Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)
|_Attribute.Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)|
Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)
Use theto manipulate the object before serialization occurs.
To use the StreamingContext parameter. The attribute marks the method to be called by the serialization infrastructure and the StreamingContext provides additional data about the type of serialization taking place. The usage is shown in the following code:, the method must contain a
In your code, you can use the word OnSerializing instead of the longer.
When using binary serialization, the binary serialization process omits the call to the onSerializing method when the serialized objects are equal. Therefore, when using the BinaryFormatter type with the equals method (or Object.GetHashCode) for example, the result may be undefined behavior.
