DiagramHasConnectorMapsSerializer.TryCreateDerivedInstance Method

This method creates a correct derived instance of DiagramHasConnectorMaps based on the tag currently pointed by the reader. Note that the difference between this method and the above one is that this method will never create an instance of the DiagramHasConnectorMaps type itself, only derived types are checked.

Return Value

Type: Microsoft.VisualStudio.Modeling.ElementLink
Created instance that derives from DiagramHasConnectorMaps, or null if the reader is not pointing to such a serialized instance.


The caller will guarantee that the reader is positioned at open XML tag of the next element being read. This method should not move the reader; the reader should remain at the same position when this method returns.
