XmlSerializationReader.InitCallbacks Method

This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Initializes callback methods that populate objects that map to SOAP-encoded XML data.

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

protected abstract void InitCallbacks()

The protected members of XmlSerializationReader are intended for use only by derived classes that are used internally within the .NET Framework XML serialization infrastructure.

During initialization, the .NET Framework XML serialization infrastructure dynamically generates and compiles a temporary class for deserialization that is derived from XmlSerializationReader. During this process, the .NET Framework generates read methods that implement the XmlSerializationReadCallback delegate. It does so for certain mappings between .NET Framework types and XML data types that are serialized through SOAP-encoded XML and are not root elements. Next, as necessary, a read method is called during deserialization.

The abstract InitCallbacks method is where the temporary derived class creates an instance of and initializes read callback methods.

You should not directly create an instance of XmlSerializationReadCallback.

SOAP encoding is described in Section 5 of the SOAP 1.1 specification.
