OnDeserializedAttribute Class

OnDeserializedAttribute Class

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

When applied to a method, specifies that the method is called immediately after deserialization of the object.


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

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Method, Inherited = false)]
public sealed class OnDeserializedAttribute : Attribute

The OnDeserializedAttribute type exposes the following members.

Public methodOnDeserializedAttributeInitializes a new instance of the OnDeserializedAttribute class.

Public methodEqualsInfrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodMatchWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Use the OnDeserializedAttribute class when you need to fix values on a deserialized object after it has been deserialized and before the graph is returned.

To use the OnDeserializedAttribute class, the method must contain a StreamingContext parameter. The attribute marks the method to be called by the serialization infrastructure and the StreamingContext provides additional data about the type of serialization taking place. The following code shows an example of how to apply OnDeserializedAttribute to a method.

\\ C#
private void RunThisMethod(StreamingContext context)
    // Code not shown.

In your code, you can use the word OnDeserialized instead of the longer OnDeserializedAttribute.
