XmlArrayItemAttribute.Type Property

Gets or sets the type allowed in an array.

Namespace:  System.Xml.Serialization
Assembly:  System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)

public Type Type { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Type
A Type that is allowed in the array.

Use the Type property to specify an overridden type for a public field or public read/write property value.

If a field or property returns an array of type Object, apply multiple instances of the XmlArrayItemAttribute to the field or property. For each instance, set the Type property to a type of object that can be inserted into the array.

If an array contains only primitive types, you do not need to apply the XmlArrayItemAttribute. By default, the XmlSerializer generates a series of elements, each with the same element name, for each value, but the type of each element is set to the XML Schema data type.
