Definition

Writes the contents of this configuration element to the configuration file when implemented in a derived class.

protected public:
 virtual bool SerializeElement(System::Xml::XmlWriter ^ writer, bool serializeCollectionKey);
protected internal virtual bool SerializeElement (System.Xml.XmlWriter writer, bool serializeCollectionKey);
abstract member SerializeElement : System.Xml.XmlWriter * bool -> bool
override this.SerializeElement : System.Xml.XmlWriter * bool -> bool
Protected Friend Overridable Function SerializeElement (writer As XmlWriter, serializeCollectionKey As Boolean) As Boolean

Parameters

writer
XmlWriter

The XmlWriter that writes to the configuration file.

serializeCollectionKey
Boolean

true to serialize only the collection key properties; otherwise, false.

Returns

true if any data was actually serialized; otherwise, false.

Exceptions

Examples

The following example shows how to extend the SerializeElement method.

protected override bool SerializeElement(
    System.Xml.XmlWriter writer, 
    bool serializeCollectionKey)
{
    bool ret = base.SerializeElement(writer, 
        serializeCollectionKey);
    // You can enter your custom processing code here.
    return ret;

}
Protected Overrides Function SerializeElement(ByVal writer _
    As System.Xml.XmlWriter, _
    ByVal serializeCollectionKey As Boolean) As Boolean

    Dim ret As Boolean = _
        MyBase.SerializeElement(writer, serializeCollectionKey)
    ' Enter your custom processing code here.
    Return ret
End Function 'SerializeElement
