XmlSerializerImplementation Class

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

Defines the reader, writer, and methods for pre-generated, typed serializers.


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

public ref class XmlSerializerImplementation abstract

The XmlSerializerImplementation type exposes the following members.

Protected methodXmlSerializerImplementationInitializes a new instance of the XmlSerializerImplementation class.

Public propertyReaderGets the XML reader object that is used by the serializer.
Public propertyReadMethodsGets the collection of methods that is used to read a data stream.
Public propertyTypedSerializersGets the collection of typed serializers that is found in the assembly.
Public propertyWriteMethodsGet the collection of methods that is used to write to a data stream.
Public propertyWriterGets the XML writer object for the serializer.

Public methodCanSerializeGets a value that determines whether a type can be serialized.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetSerializerReturns a serializer for the specified type.
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

To improve the performance of XML serialization, you can generate assemblies before serialization using the XML Serializer Generator Tool (Sgen.exe). When such an assembly is loaded, the XmlSerializer uses the properties of the XmlSerializerImplementation interface to query the contained serializer or serializers.
