Namespace:   System.Web.Script.Serialization
Assembly:  System.Web.Extensions (in System.Web.Extensions.dll)

public void RegisterConverters(
	IEnumerable<JavaScriptConverter> converters
)

Parameters

converters
Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<JavaScriptConverter>

An array that contains the custom converters to be registered.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

converters is null.

You can register one or more custom converters with a JavaScriptSerializer instance by using the RegisterConverters method. When custom converters are registered, JavaScriptSerializer uses the converters both to serialize managed types and to deserialize JSON strings to managed types.

Multiple converters can be registered with the same JavaScriptSerializer instance, and these converters can indicate support for the same type. As a result, the last converter that is registered for a specific type is the one that will be used by JavaScriptSerializer to serialize the type.

For more information about custom converters, see the JavaScriptConverter class.

The following example shows how to register a custom converter with a JavaScriptSerializer instance. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the JavaScriptSerializerclass.

serializer = new JavaScriptSerializer();

// Register the custom converter.
serializer.RegisterConverters(new JavaScriptConverter[] { 
    new System.Web.Script.Serialization.CS.ListItemCollectionConverter() });
