Property Value

The full name of the type to serialize.


Exception Type Condition
ArgumentNullException The value this property is set to is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


The FullTypeName is the same as what would be returned by calling the FullName on Type. This is the type name the formatter uses when serializing type information for this object.

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