SoapFormatter Constructor (ISurrogateSelector, StreamingContext)
Assembly: System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Soap (in System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Soap.dll)
'Declaration Public Sub New ( _ selector As ISurrogateSelector, _ context As StreamingContext _ )
- Type: System.Runtime.Serialization.ISurrogateSelector
Objects are serialized to, or deserialized from, the specified Stream.
The serialization or deserialization process uses the specified ISurrogateSelector to search for surrogates that are registered for the object types you want to deserialize. Surrogates are helpers that serialize and deserialize objects of specific classes. The default ISurrogateSelector cannot handle the serialization of objects that derive from the MarshalByRefObject for remoting purposes. In a remoting situation the specified ISurrogateSelector replaces the object derived from MarshalByRefObject with a ObjRef object that is serialized by the specified surrogate selector. Therefore, if you want to use remote objects, set the selector parameter to an instance of RemotingSurrogateSelector. If you do not need surrogates, set the selector parameter to be Nothing.
