DesignerSerializerAttribute Class

Definition

Indicates a serializer for the serialization manager to use to serialize the values of the type this attribute is applied to. This class cannot be inherited.

public ref class DesignerSerializerAttribute sealed : Attribute
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Class | System.AttributeTargets.Interface, AllowMultiple=true, Inherited=true)]
public sealed class DesignerSerializerAttribute : Attribute
type DesignerSerializerAttribute = class
    inherit Attribute
Public NotInheritable Class DesignerSerializerAttribute

Examples

The following code uses a DesignerSerializerAttribute to associate an example serializer with an example component.

[DesignerSerializerAttribute(ExampleSerializer::typeid,CodeDomSerializer::typeid)]
public ref class ExampleControl: public UserControl
{
public:
   ExampleControl()
   {

   }
};
[DesignerSerializerAttribute(typeof(ExampleSerializer), typeof(CodeDomSerializer))]
public class ExampleControl : System.Windows.Forms.UserControl
{
    public ExampleControl()
    {

    }
}
<DesignerSerializerAttribute(GetType(ExampleSerializer), GetType(CodeDomSerializer))> _
 Public Class ExampleControl
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.UserControl

    Public Sub New()
    End Sub
End Class   

Remarks

DesignerSerializerAttribute provides a way to indicate to the designer serialization manager that a specific type of serializer should be used when serializing the values of an object. This allows you to specify a serializer that is capable of serializing a custom type, for instance. Place this attribute on a class to indicate the serialization object to use when serializing the class.
