XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute Class

 

Applied to a Web service client proxy, enables you to specify an assembly that contains custom-made serializers.

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

System.Object

    System.Xml.Serialization.XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Class | AttributeTargets.Struct | AttributeTargets.Enum | AttributeTargets.Interface, 
	AllowMultiple = false)]
public sealed class XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute : Attribute

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodXmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute()

Initializes a new instance of the XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute class.

System_CAPS_pubmethodXmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute(String)

Initializes a new instance of the XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute class with the specified assembly name.

System_CAPS_pubmethodXmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute(String, String)

Initializes a new instance of the XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute class with the specified assembly name and location of the assembly.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyAssemblyName

Gets or sets the name of the assembly that contains serializers for a specific set of types.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyCodeBase

Gets or sets the location of the assembly that contains the serializers.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTypeId

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

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.)

Use the XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute to increase the performance of a Web service client application.

A typical method of using this attribute is as follows:

  1. Create a client proxy for a Web service.

  2. Open the machine.config file.

  3. Under the system.diagnostics element, add a value under the <switches> element to keep the compiled files:

    <system.diagnostics>
       <switches>
          <add name="XmlSerialization.Compilation" value="4"/>
       </switches>
    </system.diagnostics>
    
  4. Compile the proxy.

  5. Run the proxy application.

  6. Open a command window and navigate to the \Temp directory used by the XmlSerializer to cache files.

    cd %temp%
    
  7. Find the last file created using the dir command with the /OD switch.

    dir *.vb /OD 
    
  8. Compile the file into an assembly. Name the assembly.

  9. Edit the original proxy code by applying the XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute to the class. Specify the assembly name, as shown in the following C# code.

    [XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute(AssemblyName="hello.serializer")]
    public class Hello: System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol {
       // Proxy code not shown.
    }
    
<XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute(AssemblyName:="hello.serializer")> _
Public Class Hello
Implements System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol 
   ' Proxy code not shown.
End Class
