XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute Class

Definition

Applied to a Web service client proxy, enables you to specify an assembly that contains custom-made serializers.

public ref class XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute sealed : Attribute
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Class | System.AttributeTargets.Enum | System.AttributeTargets.Interface | System.AttributeTargets.Struct, AllowMultiple=false)]
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Class | System.AttributeTargets.Enum | System.AttributeTargets.Interface | System.AttributeTargets.Struct)]
public sealed class XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute : Attribute
type XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute = class
    inherit Attribute

Remarks

Use the XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute to increase the performance of a Web service client application.

A typical method of using this attribute is as follows:

  1. Create a client proxy for a Web service.

  2. Open the machine.config file.

  3. Under the system.diagnostics element, add a value under the <switches> element to keep the compiled files:

    <system.diagnostics>  
       <switches>  
          <add name="XmlSerialization.Compilation" value="4"/>  
       </switches>  
    </system.diagnostics>  
    
  4. Compile the proxy.

  5. Run the proxy application.

  6. Open a command window and navigate to the \Temp directory used by the XmlSerializer to cache files.

    cd %temp%  
    
  7. Find the last file created using the dir command with the /OD switch.

    dir *.vb /OD   
    
  8. Compile the file into an assembly. Name the assembly.

  9. Edit the original proxy code by applying the XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute to the class. Specify the assembly name, as shown in the following C# code.

    [XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute(AssemblyName="hello.serializer")]  
    public class Hello: System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol {  
       // Proxy code not shown.  
    }  
    
<XmlSerializerAssemblyAttribute(AssemblyName:="hello.serializer")> _  
Public Class Hello  
Implements System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol   
   ' Proxy code not shown.  
End Class
