XmlIgnoreAttribute Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the XmlIgnoreAttribute class.

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

public XmlIgnoreAttribute()

The following example shows a class named Group, which contains a field named Comment. The example assigns the XmlIgnoreAttribute to the field, thereby instructing the XmlSerializer to ignore the field when serializing or deserializing an instance of the class.

public class Group
{
   // The XmlSerializer ignores this field.
   [XmlIgnore]
   public string Comment;

   // The XmlSerializer serializes this field. 
   public string GroupName;
}
public __gc class Group
{
public:
   // The XmlSerializer ignores this field.
   [XmlIgnore]
   String* Comment;

   // The XmlSerializer serializes this field.
   String* GroupName;
};
