XmlSerializer.Deserialize Method (XmlReader)
Deserializes the XML document contained by the specified T:System.xml.XmlReader.
Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
Deserialization is the process of reading an instance of an XML document and constructing an object that is strongly typed to the XML Schema (XSD) of the document.
Before deserializing, an XmlSerializer must be constructed using the type of the object that is being deserialized.
The XmlReader automatically detects and uses the encoding specified by the XML document.
