Thetype exposes the following members.
|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. If you apply the to any member of a class, the XmlSerializer ignores the member when serializing or deserializing an instance of the class.
You can override the behavior caused by the by creating an XmlAttributes object and setting its XmlIgnore property to false. You must Add the XmlAttributes object to an instance of the XmlAttributeOverrides class. Last, you must use the XmlAttributeOverrides object to construct an instance of the XmlSerializer class before you call the Serialize or Deserialize methods.
You can use the word XmlIgnore in your code instead of the longer .
