XmlSerializationWriter Class

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

Abstract class used for controlling serialization by the XmlSerializer class.

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

public abstract class XmlSerializationWriter : XmlSerializationGeneratedCode

During initialization, the .NET Framework XML serialization infrastructure dynamically generates and compiles a temporary class for serialization that is derived from the abstract XmlSerializationWriter class. XmlSerializationWriter is also implemented within the .NET Framework for serialization of DiscoveryDocument and ServiceDescription objects into XML documents.

You should not derive classes from XmlSerializationWriter. Instead, call the Serialize method.
