ValueSerializer Class

Abstract class to convert a type to and from a String.

Namespace: System.Windows.Markup
Assembly: WindowsBase (in windowsbase.dll)
XML Namespace:

public abstract class ValueSerializer
public abstract class ValueSerializer
public abstract class ValueSerializer
This class is abstract; see Inheritance Hierarchy for derived non-abstract classes usable in XAML.

The string the converter returns must be loss-less and the converter must always return the same string for a particular value. If a type converter does not meet these requirements, a custom ValueSerializer must be declared that meets the requirements or a null ValueSerializer must be associated with the type.

A null ValueSerializer indicates the type converter should be ignored.

Implementation of ValueSerializer should avoid throwing exceptions. Any exceptions thrown could terminate serialization.
