XmlSerializerVersionAttribute Class

 

Signifies that the code was generated by the serialization infrastructure and can be reused for increased performance, when this attribute is applied to an assembly.

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly)]
public sealed class XmlSerializerVersionAttribute : Attribute

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodXmlSerializerVersionAttribute()

Initializes a new instance of the XmlSerializerVersionAttribute class.

System_CAPS_pubmethodXmlSerializerVersionAttribute(Type)

Initializes a new instance of the XmlSerializerVersionAttribute class for the specified type.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyNamespace

Gets or sets the common language runtime (CLR) namespace of the assembly.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyParentAssemblyId

Gets or sets the identity of the parent assembly.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyType

Gets or sets the type that the serializer operates on.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTypeId

When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyVersion

Gets or sets the assembly's version number.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsDefaultAttribute()

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodMatch(Object)

When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCount(UInt32)

Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)

Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

The .NET Framework XML serialization infrastructure dynamically generates derivations of XmlSerializer that are optimized to serialize user-defined types. The serializers are stored in assemblies that can be reused for efficient serialization.

The XmlSerializerVersionAttribute attribute stores version information about the parent assembly for which a set of serializers is generated. Later, when the XmlSerializer constructor is called, the infrastructure attempts to locate the pre-generated assembly. If the infrastructure finds an assembly with a matching name, the assembly is loaded and the infrastructure checks XmlSerializerVersionAttribute for a match between the found assembly's version and the current version of the parent assembly. If the version does not match, the found assembly is not used. Instead, a temporary assembly is generated for the serialization.
