XmlSerializer Constructor (Type)

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Initializes a new instance of the XmlSerializer class that can serialize objects of the specified type into XML documents and deserialize XML documents into objects of the specified type.

Namespace: System.Xml.Serialization
Assembly: System.Xml.Serialization (in System.Xml.Serialization.dll)

Syntax

Public Sub New ( _
    type As Type _
)
public XmlSerializer(
    Type type
)

Parameters

Remarks

Commonly, an application defines several classes that the XmlSerializer converts into a single XML-instance document. However, the XmlSerializer must know only one type--the type of the class that represents the XML root element. The XmlSerializer automatically serializes all subordinate class instances. Similarly, only the type of the XML root element is required for deserialization.
