XmlArrayAttribute() XmlArrayAttribute() XmlArrayAttribute()

Initializes a new instance of the XmlArrayAttribute class.

XmlArrayAttribute(String) XmlArrayAttribute(String) XmlArrayAttribute(String) XmlArrayAttribute(String)

Initializes a new instance of the XmlArrayAttribute class and specifies the XML element name generated in the XML document instance.

XmlArrayAttribute() XmlArrayAttribute() XmlArrayAttribute()

Initializes a new instance of the XmlArrayAttribute class.

public:
 XmlArrayAttribute();
public XmlArrayAttribute ();
Public Sub New ()

Examples

The following example assigns the XmlArrayAttribute to two arrays.

public ref class MyClass
{
public:

   [XmlArrayAttribute]
   array<String^>^MyStringArray;

   [XmlArrayAttribute]
   array<Int32>^MyIntegerArray;
};

public class MyClass
{
    [XmlArrayAttribute()]
    public string [] MyStringArray;
    [XmlArrayAttribute()]
    public int [] MyIntegerArray;
}

Public Class MyClass1
    <XmlArrayAttribute()> Public MyStringArray() As String
    <XmlArrayAttribute()> Public MyIntegerArray() As Integer
End Class

XmlArrayAttribute(String) XmlArrayAttribute(String) XmlArrayAttribute(String) XmlArrayAttribute(String)

Initializes a new instance of the XmlArrayAttribute class and specifies the XML element name generated in the XML document instance.

public:
 XmlArrayAttribute(System::String ^ elementName);
public XmlArrayAttribute (string elementName);
new System.Xml.Serialization.XmlArrayAttribute : string -> System.Xml.Serialization.XmlArrayAttribute
Public Sub New (elementName As String)

Parameters

elementName
String String String String

The name of the XML element that the XmlSerializer generates.

Examples

The following example assigns the XmlArrayAttribute to two arrays, and serializes a class instance that contains those arrays.

};

int main()
{
   String^ filename = "MyClass.xml";

   // Creates a new instance of the XmlSerializer class.
   XmlSerializer^ s = gcnew XmlSerializer( MyClass::typeid );

   // Needs a StreamWriter to write the file.

      // Needs a StreamWriter to write the file.
      TextWriter myWriter= new StreamWriter(filename);
 
      MyClass myClass = new MyClass();
      // Creates and populates a string array, then assigns
