DataContractResolver.TryResolveType(Type, Type, DataContractResolver, XmlDictionaryString, XmlDictionaryString) Method

Definition

Override this method to map a data contract type to an xsi:type name and namespace during serialization.

public:
 abstract bool TryResolveType(Type ^ type, Type ^ declaredType, System::Runtime::Serialization::DataContractResolver ^ knownTypeResolver, [Runtime::InteropServices::Out] System::Xml::XmlDictionaryString ^ % typeName, [Runtime::InteropServices::Out] System::Xml::XmlDictionaryString ^ % typeNamespace);
public abstract bool TryResolveType (Type type, Type declaredType, System.Runtime.Serialization.DataContractResolver knownTypeResolver, out System.Xml.XmlDictionaryString typeName, out System.Xml.XmlDictionaryString typeNamespace);
public abstract bool TryResolveType (Type? type, Type declaredType, System.Runtime.Serialization.DataContractResolver? knownTypeResolver, out System.Xml.XmlDictionaryString typeName, out System.Xml.XmlDictionaryString typeNamespace);
abstract member TryResolveType : Type * Type * System.Runtime.Serialization.DataContractResolver * XmlDictionaryString * XmlDictionaryString -> bool
Public MustOverride Function TryResolveType (type As Type, declaredType As Type, knownTypeResolver As DataContractResolver, ByRef typeName As XmlDictionaryString, ByRef typeNamespace As XmlDictionaryString) As Boolean

Parameters

type
Type

The type to map.

declaredType
Type

The type declared in the data contract.

knownTypeResolver
DataContractResolver

The known type resolver.

typeName
XmlDictionaryString

The xsi:type name.

typeNamespace
XmlDictionaryString

The xsi:type namespace.

Returns

Boolean

true if mapping succeeded; otherwise, false.

Examples

The following example shows an implementation of the TryResolveType method.

// Used at serialization
// Maps any Type to a new xsi:type representation
public override bool TryResolveType(Type type, Type declaredType, DataContractResolver knownTypeResolver, out XmlDictionaryString typeName, out XmlDictionaryString typeNamespace)
{
    string name = type.Name;
    string namesp = type.Namespace;
    typeName = new XmlDictionaryString(XmlDictionary.Empty, name, 0);
    typeNamespace = new XmlDictionaryString(XmlDictionary.Empty, namesp, 0);
    if (!dictionary.ContainsKey(type.Name))
    {
        dictionary.Add(name, typeName);
    }
    if (!dictionary.ContainsKey(type.Namespace))
    {
        dictionary.Add(namesp, typeNamespace);
    }
    return true;
}

Remarks

If you want to use the known type resolution logic inside your implementation, a reference to it is passed in as the knownTypeResolver parameter.
