public string FullTypeName { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

The full name of the type to serialize.

Exception Condition

The value this property is set to is null.

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.


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