System.Windows.Documents.Serialization Namespace

Provides types that support the creation and use of run-time accessible plug-in serializers that read and write documents in different data formats.

Plug-in serializers can only be used with full trust applications.

When called by the application, the plug-in serializer runs in the same thread as the application and can only access elements created within the application thread. When designing a custom plug-in serializer, it is important to properly handle all possible error conditions. A failure within a plug-in serializer can cause an application to fail.
