public enum SerializationMode

Member nameDescription

XmlThe profile ProfilePropertySettings is serialized as XML using XML serialization.

The SerializeAs property of the ProfilePropertySettings object controls the serialization mode for a single profile property setting.

The following code example shows how to use the SerializeAs property. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ProfileSection class.

    "Current SerializeAs value: '{0}'", profilePropertySettings.SerializeAs);

// Set the SerializeAs property to SerializationMode.Binary.
profilePropertySettings.SerializeAs = SerializationMode.Binary;
