System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethodISerializable.GetObjectData(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Populates a SerializationInfo with the data needed to serialize the target object.

The AxHost.State can be retrieved using the AxHost.OcxState property, or by reading the control's state from a data stream.

For more information, see the documentation for IPersistStream and IPersistPropertyBag in the MSDN library.
