Provides static methods to convert input text into names for code entities.

Namespace:  System.Xml.Serialization

public class CodeIdentifier

The methods of the CodeIdentifier class are used by the XML serialization infrastructure while producing .NET Framework types from XML element and data type definitions. XML element or attribute names typically provide the methods' input text.

You do not need to call the methods of the CodeIdentifier class directly from your code. Instead, use the various tools and APIs provided by the .NET Framework for XML serialization, such as the XmlSerializer, or the XML Schema Definition Tool (Xsd.exe) tool.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
