Type.IsSerializable Property

Gets a value indicating whether the Type is serializable.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public virtual bool IsSerializable { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the Type is serializable; otherwise, false.

If the current Type represents a constructed generic type, this property applies to the generic type definition from which the type was constructed. For example, if the current Type represents MyGenericType<int> (MyGenericType(Of Integer) in Visual Basic), the value of this property is determined by MyGenericType<T>.

If the current Type represents a type parameter in the definition of a generic type or generic method, this property always returns false.

The following example creates an instance of MyTestClass class, sets the [Serializable] attribute, and checks the IsSerializable property for true or false.
