Public Property AssemblyName As String

Property Value

Type: System.String

The full name of the assembly of the type to serialize.

Exception Condition

The value the property is set to is null.

The AssemblyName is the same as the value returned by FullName property of the assembly of the containing type. This is the assembly name that the formatter uses when serializing type information for this object.

The assembly name contains the name of the assembly, version, culture, and some security information about the object.

Users who are changing the type being serialized (for example, to send a proxy for a particular type) will set the value of this property.


Do not use this property during deserialization because the value of this property is undefined.
