Controls XML serialization of the attribute target as an XML root element.
Assembly: System.Xml (in System.Xml.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|DataType||Gets or sets the XSD data type of the XML root element.|
|ElementName||Gets or sets the name of the XML element that is generated and recognized by the XmlSerializer class's Serialize and Deserialize methods, respectively.|
|IsNullable||Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the XmlSerializer must serialize a member that is set to Nothing into the xsi:nil attribute set to true.|
|Namespace||Gets or sets the namespace for the XML root element.|
|Equals||Infrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Match||When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
The belongs to a family of attributes that controls how the XmlSerializer serializes or deserializes an object.
You can apply the to a class, structure, enumeration, or interface. You can also apply the attribute to the return value of an XML Web service method.
Every XML document must have a single root element that contains all the other elements. The allows you to control how the XmlSerializer generates the root element by setting certain properties. For example, specify the name of the generated XML element by setting the ElementName property.
You can use the word XmlRoot in your code instead of the longer .
